A Look to the Past: FA Cup run of 52/53

Gateshead AFC as the club was known then reached the 6th round of the FA Cup in the 1952/53 season.

This is the round by round journey to the 6th round:

1st Round Gateshead beat Crewe 2-0 at Home

2nd Round Gateshead beat Bradford Park Avenue 2-1 Away

3rd Round Gateshead beat Liverpool 1-0 at Home

4th Round Gateshead beat Hull City 2-1 Away

5th Round Gateshead beat Plymouth 1-0 Away

6th Round Gateshead's FA Cup dream came to a end at Home with a 1-0 defeat to Bolton Wanderers.

Two games from Wembley was the team of 52/53, a cup run yet to be matched by any Gateshead team. YET!!!
