Southport, as the only fourth division club left in the competition, faced Hull City in the fifth round of the FA Cup on this day in 1966, vying for a place in the last 8 of the competition.
Winger Dickie Marshall reported 100% fit after a test but full-back Terry McDonald was declared unfit on the morning of the game.
Having already disposed of second division sides Ipswich and Cardiff, and on the back of 9 games without defeat, the Sandgrounders went into the game with confidence and sold 4073 ticket.
HULL CITY 2 – 0 SOUTHPORT
