    Biggest upset in the 2021-22 FA Cup 1st Round: St Albans City 3-2 Forest Green Rovers.

6th-tier/ Conference-North side St Albans City (of Hertfordshire) beat League Two leaders Forest Green Rovers – a club 2 levels and 46 league-places above them. And in doing so, St Albans beat a Football League side in the FA Cup for the first time in their 113 year history. In the 2nd Round, on Monday the 6th of December, in a televised match, St Albans have been drawn to play at Boreham Wood FC, which is just 8 miles down the road from them. (St Albans manager Ian Allinson was manager of Boreham Wood from 2008 to 2015.)
