Upsets for today’s underdogs to emulate
Lincoln City 2017
Only non-League team to reach quarter-finals. The scalps of Ipswich, Brighton and Burnley were taken before losing to eventual winners Arsenal 5-0.
Luton Town 2013
First non-League team to beat a Premier League side when they saw off Norwich City 1-0 in the fourth round before losing to Millwall.
Sutton Utd 1989
Beat Coventry, who had won the competition two years earlier, 2-1 in the third round.
Blyth Spartans 1978
Played 11 games in an FA Cup run that ended in the fifth round.
Hereford Utd 1972
Ronnie Radford’s third-round strike in the 2-1 win against Newcastle, in front of fans in trees and a pitch with barely any grass, remains the most famous giant killing moment of all.
