Arsenal - the most successful club in the FA Cup - were brutally knocked out by the Championship side Nottingham Forest 1-0. The London side have won the FA Cup a record 14 times but were knocked out of the competition before even reaching the quarter final.

Kidderminster Harriers were the lowest league team left in the competition during the fourth round and put on an exceptionally impressive display against West Ham, holding off the Premier League side until the 121st minute.

In true FA Cup spirit, the team who currently compete in the National League North (the sixth tier of English football) brought the fire and passion to Aggborough Stadium and showed football fans around England what the FA Cup is all about.

Unfortunately for Kidderminster Harriers, Jarred Bowen secured West Ham’s seemingly inevitable victory and sent the Hammers through to their fixture against Southampton.
