Swindon Town, Wrexham, Stourbridge, Redbridge and Hanworth Villa are the five teams in with a shout of winning this year's Ronnie Radford Award, but it's up to you who claims the honour.
Launched last season, the annual award is aimed at recognising the team which achieves the most impressive giant-killing act in The FA Cup. Crawley Town, then in the Conference Premier, scooped the prize last year after their 2-1 Third Round win over Championship outfit Derby County.
The Ronnie Radford Award is named after the Hereford United midfielder whose long-range goal against Newcastle United in 1972 helped bring about arguably The FA Cup’s most famous giant-killing. Radford’s spectacular goal on a mud-covered Edgar Street pitch – watched by the TV cameras and greeted with unbridled glee by 26-year-old rookie commentator John Motson – equalised Malcolm Macdonald’s opener for the Magpies and is a constant and wonderful reminder of the magic of The FA Cup. Ricky George hit the winner to send Hereford into the Fourth Round.
And once more, fans can vote for who they think deserves to win, with the victorious club being presented with the award at The FA Cup Final at Wembley Stadium on 5 May.
Make your choice in the poll at the bottom of the page. Voting closes at midnight on Monday 16 April.
The Five Contenders
SWINDON TOWN 2-1 Wigan Athletic
Third Round Proper
Paolo Di Canio’s League Two side beat Premier League Wigan 2-1 in the Third Round before nearly 14,000 at the County Ground. They were behind at half-time but Alan Connell and Paul Benson scored to take the Wiltshire underdogs through.
Brentford 0-1 WREXHAM
Second Round Proper
Brentford of League One were beaten 1-0 at home in the Second Round by Wrexham, who now play in the Conference Premier. The Welsh side played confidently from the start and Jamie Tolley’s scorching 25-yarder proved to be decisive.
STOURBRIDGE 2-0 Plymouth Argyle
First Round Proper
The Stourbridge ‘Glassboys’ from the Southern League Premier Division sent most of a 2,519 crowd at the War Memorial Athletic Ground into delirium with a 2-0 replay win over Plymouth, FA Cup Semi-Finalists in the 1980s, in the First Round.
REDBRIDGE 2-0 Ebbsfleet United
Fourth Round Qualifying
Redbridge still hadn’t won at home in the Isthmian League Division One North when they took on Ebbsfleet from the Conference Premier in the Fourth Round Qualifying. The Motormen, who included Jimmy Greaves’ grandson, won 2-0 with two late goals.
HANWORTH VILLA 1-0 Aveley
Second Round Qualifying
Hanworth Villa, the Middlesex club from the Combined Counties League who were playing in their first FA Cup, beat Aveley from the Isthmian League Premier Division 1-0 in the Second Round Qualifying at Rectory Meadows. Levi King scored.
