And I read that Ealing AFC (who they?) played 8 games there in 1930/31

Happy New Year Buncranaboy. I don't usually read this section but anything relating to Victoria Coren-Mitchell is likely to grab my attention.

I can't swear that it was their first ever match at the stadium but on 13th October 1928 Ipswich played their second away league game of the season against Ealing (Association?) at Wembley in the Southern Amateur League. Town won 4-0 in front of a 1200 crowd, with the scorers being H.L. Rogers 2, P. Bugg and L. Gibbs. As well as the away league match at Eastbourne we played 3 cup ties during September/October of that season before the Wembley match.

Whilst I can't, therefore, guarantee that Ipswich should have been the first answer in the link, as it was their 5th game of the season, I will rain on Leo's parade in saying that, as per Buncranaboy's observation, Palace would not have been the first side to play a league game at Wembley.

Info courtesy of the excellent, "Men Who Made The Town", I say "excellent" as it was written by a drinking chum of mine.

No info about whether paper was available but as there were no murders in Ipswich that day those away fans attending wouldn't have needed an alibi.
