FA Cup: Fifth-division English club breaks a 103-year-old non-league drought
It was a truly historic day for Lincoln City on Saturday
The year 1914 was the last time a non-league side made it to the FA Cup quarterfinals ... until Saturday.
Lincoln City, from Englandâs fifth division, stunned Premier League side Burnley 1-0 on the road to snap non-league clubsâ 103-year drought in making the quarterfinals, as Sean Raggett scored in the 89th minute to secure the stunning win.
Here is the winning goal, which goal-line technology confirmed:
Itâs been an unbelievable run for the 133-year-old club, which has never finished higher than fifth place in the second division. To translate this to American sports, imagine a Class A baseball team beating a Major League Baseball team in a knockout, one-game playoff.
This team has taken down second-division Brighton and a Premier League club all in one cup run.
This is the definition of a sports Cinderella.
