Oreham Wood will be looking for another major FA Cup upset when they travel to Everton tonight.
As the only non-league team remaining in the competition, the thought of a quarter-final place just 90 minutes away only underlines the incredible achievement of Luke Garrard’s side.
While battling for National League promotion, the Woods have beaten Eastleigh, St Albans, AFC Wimbledon and Bournemouth in their dream run so far.
Then Everton, who under Frank Lampard know anything but a comfortable victory will be seen as a failure in front of their own fans.
