Lincoln City Become First Non-League Side To Reach FA Cup Quarter-Finals In 103 Years After A Dramatic Late Winner That Knocked Burnley Out Of The FA Cup

Burnley 0-1 Lincoln City: Sean Raggett heads home winner
Around 3,000 Lincoln City fans were still singing from the away end at Turf Moor half an hour after referee Graham Scott had blown the final whistle to indicate that FA Cup history had been made.

They chanted the name of club legend Graham Taylor and serenaded their new management team of brothers Danny and Nicky Cowley to the tune originally meant for Yaya and Kolo Toure. Loudest of all, they bellowed out ‘City ‘til I die’ in a way that made the hairs stand up on the back of your neck.
Thanks to Sean Raggett’s 89th-minute header, Lincoln are the first non-League side since 1914 to reach the FA Cup quarter-finals and Wembley is only one match away.

Lincoln's players celebrate in the away dressing room at Turf Moor after springing a huge shock on Saturday afternoon
