List of Non-League Clubs in the Fifth Round of the FA Cup Since 1945

Since the end of the Second World War in 1945, nine non-League football clubs - that is, clubs outside the divisions of the Football League and, since 1992, the Premier League - have reached the Fifth Round of the FA Cup, to become one of the last 16 clubs in the competition. To date, only Lincoln City has subsequently reached the next round, the "quarter-finals" (formerly called the Sixth Round). The last non-League team to reach the quarter-finals (then the Fourth Round) was Queen Park Rangers of the Southern Football League in 1914, when the Southern League ran parallel to the Football League as opposed to being a feeder to it (with the National League in between) within the English football league system as it is today.

The most recent example of a non-League team beating top-flight opposition in the FA Cup was Lincoln City's Fifth Round victory away at Burnley in 2017.[1] The last time a non-league side beat top-flight opposition at home in the FA Cup was Sutton United's Third Round victory over Coventry City in 1989.

In 2017, two non-League teams made it to the Fifth Round of the competition, Lincoln City and Sutton United. This was the first time two non-League teams had made it this far in the same season since the establishment of the Football League in 1888.[2] Lincoln City subsequently became the first non-League team in 103 years and the first since World War I to make the quarter finals, but lost 5-0 to Arsenal.[3]
