The Giant Killers

Every F A cup slaying since 1888


The west Londoners first appeared in the F A cup in 1897, reaching the first round in 1904 as a Southern League club. The Cottagers first met top flight opposition the following year, defeating Nottingham Forest and went on to gain league status in 1907. Their greatest moment as a lower tier club came in 1936 when Derby were swept aside at Craven Cottage while Fulham went from strength to strength after he war and reached the big time in 1949. Oddly it was as a second tier club that Fulham reached their only cup final in 1975, going down to an Alan Taylor brace against West Ham. The club spent the rest of the 20th Century moving between the second and fourth tiers of the game before rejoining the elite in 2002 where the Thamesiders have spent most of their time since.
