Northern League side Crook Town have one piece of history that teams such as Chelsea, Manchester United, Manchester City and Arsenal are yet to recreate - they have beaten Barcelona away.
The 4-2 victory came in a three-game test series in 1913 against the Catalan giants and certainly raised the profile of the club.
And that is something which current boss Gary Pearson is keen to do in this season's FA Cup with Budweiser.
Ahead of Saturday's Extra Preliminary Round tie against Billingham Town, the manager told TheFA.com: "A good cup run would be great for the club.
"We’re making a conscious effort to get Crook Town on the map and we won our first silverware in 50 years last season when we clinched the Northern League Division Two title.
"We want to be playing at the highest possible level and more people become aware of your club when you start getting further in The FA Cup.
"There are also the financial gains, we’re a stable club that’s run very well but at this level money is always important."
But Pearson also recognises the importance of not thinking too far ahead. By his own admission, his FA Cup record is poor and he knows the best thing to do is to focus on his own squad if Crook Town are to progress.
He added: "Kyle Davis and Robbie Bird are two players we’ve got who can make a difference, they both have great feet and ability that can cause trouble for any opposition. That coupled someone like Warren Byrne up front means we always have a chance.
"Billingham will be up for it just as we are and there are the obvious nerves before a cup game but this is The FA Cup, as long as we play our way and stay composed, anything can happen."
