The Giant Killers

Every F A cup giant killing since 1888

               NOTTS COUNTY

County were original members of the Football League whose only major trophy came as a second division club in 1894, defeating four top flight clubs in the process to win the F A cup. The Magpies have played in all four levels of English football but haven't played among the elite since 1992, pulling off ten minor shocks as a lower division side and being on the wrong end of fourteen minor upsets as a top flight club.
