Notes / History The 1959 replay between Nottingham Forest and Tooting & Mitcham FC.

This was the culmination of the First Division 3rd round - perhaps the most famous FA Cup run involving the Tooting & Mitcham side.

The local team took a 2 goal lead in their home game but Forest equalised thanks to a penalty and an own goal.

The away game at Nottingham Forest attracted a crowd of over 42,000 people. Forest won the game 3:0 and went on to FA Cup victory later that year.
