    I (vaguely) remember that in 1955 York City, then in Div 3 played against N/C in the FA Cup Semi Final.

    They took the game to a replay, (at Roker Park), but lost.

    That thought came back to me as she hoisted her cup.
    She had though, gone two better than York City.

    If you have a place in your memory for Great Sporting Shocks, put her win there.

    It sits with York City's cup run and even more of a shock than our 1973 win.

    Emma Raducanu would have to shoot Bambi to not win BBC’s Sports Personality of the Year award this year.

    6/1 to go and win the US open again next year. Expected shorter odds tbh.
