Down Memory Lane: The day Nottingham Forest made FA Cup history
JANUARY 17, 1891 was the day Nottingham Forest made FA Cup history by beating top amateur side Clapton Orient 14-0.
Sandy Higgins, who had been doubtful through injury before the tie, bagged five of the goals.
The veteran Tinsley Lindley helped himself to four and Neil McCallum and Basford-born Arthur Shaw both scored twice.
It was a record score for an away side that stood for 114 years.

The Forest team that memorable day was Brown, Earp, Scott, Smith (A), Russell, Jeacock, McCallum, Smith (W), Higgins, Lindley, Shaw.
Amateur right-back Jack Earp, born in Sherwood in 1872, went on to win the FA Cup with Sheffield Wednesday in 1896.
Earp, younger brother of Teddy, had two spells with Forest and also played for Everton.
Cambridge Blue Dr Tinsley Lindley OBE was one of the elite band who played cricket as well as football.
The versatile Lindley turned out for Nottinghamshire CCC and Cambridge University and also played rugby for Nottingham.
Remarkably, Lindley, who scored 15 goals in 13 games for England, refused to wear football boots.
He chose to play in shoes, but this didn't appear to be a handicap as he scored 17 goals in 32 appearances for Forest.
He also played for the famous amateur side Corinthians and lectured in law at Nottingham University.
He was a barrister and later became a County Court judge.
