Memorable third-round giant-killings from the world's oldest cup competition
The FA Cup remains the most famous domestic cup competition in world football and a major part of the competition's enduring allure stems from non-league and lower league teams defying the odds and beating opponents from the nation's top divisions.

Wrexham 2-1 Arsenal in 1992. That was the same year Arsenal won division 1 and Wrexham finished bottom of division 4 the teams could not of been further away in the league yet Wrexham still won the game. I think this is one of the all time biggest shocks!!! :)
A stunning performance saw Bournemouth beat Spurs 3-1 and were then handed a home tie against Manchester United - the top side in the country! The dream ended there in controversial circumstances. United won 2-1 in front of a record 28,799 crowd at Dean Court through a goal that looked offside and a questionable penalty. Despite the defeat, Bournemouth grabbed the nations imaginations and were awarded 'The Giant Killers Cup'.
As a Liverpool fan it has to be 1959 ( a few months before a certain Mr Shankley took over) and Worcester City beating Liverpool 2 - 1 (the only time Liverpool have been beaten by a non-league side). Or how about 1970 and Watford, then in the old fourth divison knocking Liverpool out 1 - 0. My favourite though has to be Chilton Colliery Recreation Athletic (a group of coal miners) beating Rochdale 2 - 1 in 1925. Ah the glory of the FA Cup.

I was about 5, my earliest memory of a football match.
I don't think The Dons could even believe it themselves. My Dad went into a pub in Wimbledon after the match and just saw the FA cup sitting there on a table. He got half way through reading all the winners before somebody tapped him on the shoulder and asked him to put it down.
