One other game worthy of mentioning here is the 1889 first-round FA Cup game against Linfield. We drew 1-1 but Linfield scratched before the replay, giving us a free pass into the second round. Ironically enough we had two replays in that round (against Chatham) before they beat us 3-2 in the third game.
