40th anniversary next year.Not much glory in the FA Cup in my 49 years of watching.The ‘Joy’ of Exeter City,summed up
perfectly last season at home & away to Hartlepool The 80/81 Cup campaign has made up for a lot of dross I & others have had to witness fortunately.
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 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!
