Jon Carter: Rewind to 1992

The FA Cup has gained itself a reputation for giantkilling as, throughout its history, clubs from the lower echelons of English football would occasionally upset the established order and knock out one of the big-boys. Whether it was Hereford against Newcastle in 1972 or Colchester beating Leeds a year previous, the competition is beloved for its propensity to provide shocks. Twenty years ago, on January 4, 1992, the club at the foot of the Football League, Wrexham, found themselves in the spotlight against First Division champions Arsenal at the Racecourse Ground. The Welsh side would go on to secure their greatest ever result and one of the biggest upsets in FA Cup history.
