Have beaten Swindon 1-0 to reach the 3rd round of the FA Cup
Last time I went to Swindon, to watch Shots, we lost 7-0. Woking, as a FC, have a brilliant Cup tradition. Also, I believe, they, amongst many others, have played at Wembley. Meanwhile, in sleepy valley, we have a gas leak!
Woking have played at wembley at least twice, if my memory serves me. Or three times? In the 1990s, won the FA Umbro Trophy three times in four seasons.
Yes scorp, 94 95 97 Runcorn Kidderminster and Dagenham respectively!

Four times if you go back to the ‘58 amateur cup final.

Thanks for the positive words here chaps it’s made very pleasant reading on what’s already been an exceptional day!

Yes I will add my congratulations too, great result and I really hope that you get a Premiership club in the next round.

Regardless of any of our club rivalries this is what the FA Cup is all about, lower league clubs getting the chance for cup glory and of course important money in the coffers.

Good luck for the next round Kanu's Nan

Shots are one of very few in the top five divisions not to have played at Wembley, and there are many more in levels 6 and below who have graced the hallowed turf - due to Play-offs, Amateur Cup and Trophy finals. I think Shots managers have failed to recognise this as they have often fielded weakened teams in the Trophy. I suspect Woking might get there again, playing Tottenham away in the Third Round.

Ta, Disturbed. I saw two of those, in between visiting the rec and woking to see which team i should settle on, because Peterborough, my old home club, was too far away from the sunlit downlands of south of godalming. Now it's even further away, since we moved in 2006, but so is aldershot. crawley and brighton are sort of on my doorstep, but! Incidentally, at least a couple of reading fans were in the east bank on sat, to see the reading loanees. they joined in with "Come on the shots."

I went to the WBA game 93 fantastic atmosphere and game.Played Chapple in my youth in Farnham Sunday League ,he played for the Bourne.First tackle he nearly snapped me in half.
From that time all the bad stuff about Gazza,yet he made the time to see Tim Buzaglo whilst Tim recovered from his cruciate injury.

WBA was January 91, that Tim buzaglo injury was inflicted on by a St Albans nutter a week after his hat trick at West Brom, shocking tackle!

5th Jan '91. 1.35 mins of the action: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gfz77i94hkM

I see Buzaglio played cricket for Malta before heading ... into football.

Says he was hyper nervous before the WBA game, and threw up. https://www.getsurrey.co.uk/sport/footb ... st-4826132

Seems to be some goodwill on here for Woking which is strange. Eveytime, I look on their board they post something abusive about Aldershot. For example, recently praising Garry Hill for beating us on Saturday. Interesting, how they were accused by some of being over physical and have two giant Centre halves. How we could do with some of that at present.

Good luck to Woking in the draw, hope they get a big team away and get a good payday out of it.
We all laughed at them for getting relegated last season, but I would swap there current situation for our situation right now. Maybe getting relegated will be the kick up the backside we need to regroup and progress again.

Wrong! Some may have, but not all.
