DECEMBER 17th 2014, a date that will live long in the memory for Worcester City fans and those who just love the magic of the FA Cup in general.

City earned themselves a credible 1-1 draw away at League One Scunthorpe in the first game of the FA Cup proper second round tie before returning to Aggborough for the replay, after they had beaten Coventry City in the opening round on what was another famous day.

City supporters turned up in their thousands for the home tie and witnessed a new record as the two sides played out the longest penalty shootout in the cup's history, still standing today.

It finished with heartbreak as the football league outfit won 14-13 after 32 spot kicks were taken following the 1-1 draw in normal time.

Despite defeat it was a memorable cup run and one that will stay with fans forever more.

Scunthorpe had taken the lead right on half-time as Paddy Madden nodded in the opener but Sean Geddes proved the hero once more as he coolly slotted home with 20 minutes to play.

Then it was all down to the drama of penalties.

City's second penalty, from Nick Wright, was saved by Sam Slocombe, only for Nathan Vaughan to keep the home side in it when he saved Scunny's fifth crucial spot-kick from Miguel Llera.

When Danny Jackman then fired over the bar in sudden death, Vaughan again came to the rescue by saving from Matt Sparrow.

But, after a run of 16 successful penalties, visiting keeper Slocombe dived to the left to save from Thomas - and this time Llera kept his cool to earn his side a third-round tie.
