Amateurs and professionals are pitted against each other in the FA Cup - and sometimes the impossible happens. This book records the upsets and drama as David slays Goliath on the football field. Colchester United v Leeds, Altrincham v Spurs, Sutton Utd v Coventry City, Kidderminster Harriers, Blyth Spartans and Wycombe Wanderers - just a few of the FA Cup memories highlighted in this book in which the underdogs have against all the odds overcome more celebrated opponents and set themselves on a path to glory. Other stories revealed include: Sutton United's goalkeeper having to fulfil his day job and drive his team-mates to the ground in a bus; the fireman who scored two goals before going back on call at the end of the game; and the bricklayer who had to borrow his mate's boots five minutes before kick-off.
