Fraizer Campbell is aiming to become the first Huddersfield-born player to appear in an FA Cup final in 34 years.

The Crystal Palace striker who has former club Manchester United in his sights ahead of Saturday’s Wembley showdown, is aiming to follow in the footsteps on Tony Galvin, who represented another London club, Tottenham Hotspur, in the showpiece games of 1981 and 1982, both of which went to replays.

Before that, two other Huddersfield products, former Town players Trevor Cherry and Bob McNab, featured in finals.

Winger Galvin, now 59, was a late entrant to professional football.

But that didn’t prevent him topping 200 appearances for Tottenham and winning 29 caps for the Republic of Ireland, including three at Euro 88 in Germany.

The younger brother of Chris Galvin, who played for Leeds United, Hull City and Stockport County, Tony joined Spurs from Goole for £30,000 in 1978.

He had been playing for the Northern Premier League club while studying at Hull and Nottingham.

Galvin, who made his debut at home to Manchester City in the top flight in February 1979, had a part in one of the best-remembered FA Cup final goals of all time in the 1981 final replay.

He ran down the left and passed to Ricky Villa for the Argentinian to skip past a string of Manchester City defenders and slot home the goal which sealed 3-2 win (after a 1-1 extra-time draw in the first game).

Galvin, who later played for Sheffield Wednesday and Swindon Town, also figured in both final clashes with Queens Park Rangers in 1982, the first a 1-1 extra-time draw and the second a 1-0 Spurs win.

While Galvin collected two winners’ medals, Cherry wasn’t so fortunate.

In the 1973 final, at the end of his first season at Leeds after a £100,000 move from Town, Don Revie’s side suffered a shock 1-0 defeat by Sunderland.

It was the first time since West Bromwich Albion in 1931 that a side from outside the top flight had won the FA Cup.

England international Cherry, who is now 68 and made 208 Town appearances, played at left-back against the Wearsiders, who won with Ian Porterfield’s goal.

McNab was also a left-back who played 76 times for Town before a £55,000 transfer to Arsenal in October 1966.

Like Cherry capped by England, he was a key man for the Gunners as they won the double in 1970-71, Liverpool being beaten 2-1 after extra time in the FA Cup final.

Arsenal and McNab were back at Wembley the season after, but they lost 1-0 to Leeds.

Campbell, 28, attended Huddersfield Grammar School and was signed by Manchester United at the age of 10.

He made four first-team appearances, and was loaned to Hull City and Tottenham, before joining Sunderland for £3.5m in 2009.

Campbell, who has one England cap, played for Cardiff City before a £900,000 move to Palace in 2014.

He was on target in the 2-0 FA Cup quarter-final win at Reading.
