Last weekend non-league Lincoln City beat Premier League Burnley to make the quarter finals of England’s FA Cup; a feat not achieved since 1914.
The Romance of the FA Cup was alive. But wait; there’s more non league Sutton played Premier League heavyweights Arsenal two days later. Could this happen again?
What made the Story of Sutton even more romantic was the state of their reserve keeper; 45 year old Wayne Shaw. Here he is before the match hoovering out the dugouts.

But look at this, fancy Sutton’s new shirt sponsor (as in the last couple of weeks new) Sun Bets offering a bet option like that just before kick-off. And fancy that ended up happening, and the cameras catching it.
