Brian Talbot was the first player to play on the winning side for two different teams in FA Cup finals in successive years. He is an English former football player and was capped six times for the England national team. Talbot began his football career as an apprentice with Ipswich Town F.C. in 1968, turning professional in 1972. He won the 1977–78 FA Cup with the club. In January 1979, Talbot moved to Arsenal F.C. for a fee of £450,000. He went straight into the first team and played for the Gunners in that year's FA Cup final, scoring in a 3–2 victory over Manchester United; Talbot thus became the first man for more than 100 years to win the FA Cup with two different teams in consecutive seasons.
