Walton and Hersham were a decent team back then, they won the FA Amateur Cup that same season - the penultimate winners of the competition.

They're now in the sixth tier of non-league football, and aren't even the best side in Walton-on-Thames.

You could probably make a November "advent calendar" for City's cup defeats against non-league sides.

Was this day in 1984 that we got dumped out of the cup by Enfield.

We must have one of the worst records in the country for losing to non-league sides in the FA Cup (while being a League side of course). Would be a nightmare to work out though.

We joined the League in 1920/21 and it was only took us until 1922/23 to lose to our first - Bath City. We lost to Bath again in 1957!

The Grecians held the record at one point,but i seem to recall they lost that dubious record in the early 1990s..It was Crewe or Halifax who overtook the Grecians for a FL team losing to a non league side most times in the FAC.
We have had a few more defeats(3)since those days so could hold the record again ?
