A fascinating book which tells the unlikely story of the 1878/79 F.A. Cup run enjoyed by Darwen FC, an unfancied club from a small Lancashire town. After winning their way through to the quarter-finals, Darwen faced the mighty Old Etonians, one of the best teams of the day and were ultimately defeated after three titanic games but not without a degree of controversy. This edition published in 2012.
