The Giant Killers

Every F A cup slaying since 1888

Millwall

MILLWALL

It was as Millwall Athletic that the Dockers, as they were then known, first came to prominence with a memorable cup victory over Aston Villa, which played a part in the team becoming known as the Lions. Their history since is full of memorable cup giant killing feats. in 1914 Chelsea came across town and found that their lions were not the pride of London. Millwall's reward was a place in the league in 1920 but with the exception of a two season spell among the elite at the end of the eighties their campaigns have all been as a lower division club. The reputation as cup shockers continued though with memorable victories over Bury, 1926 and Huddersfield, 1927 while their cup run of 1937 remains a legendary year in the club's history. Victories were gained that year over both Derby and Manchester City with the latter game remaining probably Millwall's greatest cup day until they made it to their solitary final in 2004 when they went down 0-3 to Manchester United. Post war Millwall's best cup giant killing exploit is probably the defeat of local rivals Fulham in 1965. Despite having only entered the cup twice as a top flight side it is enough time for them to have featured on the wrong end of a disastrous cup exit against Cambridge in 1990.
