The Great cup run of 1928.
However, there is one season long forgotten, not even mentioned anymore for many reasons, mainly no one is around now who was alive when it took place. Also because, as crazy as the cup run was, not one football league team was defeated. Although the FA Cup run of 1928 has to go down as one of the craziest ever in the club's long history. Lasting just five rounds over ten weeks, it became so all consuming that hardly a Saturday or Thursday passed in that small time scale where the Glovers were not involved in an FA Cup match. It is a remarkable story and one worth telling!
It all started on the 15th October 1928 with a derby in the preliminary round. Taunton Town at that time were big rivals, long before the Weymouth rivalry ever took off. Since the death of Ernest Hyman who died from his injuries received against Taunton there was a bitterness that grew. It would be at the County town team Yeovil would head for their first cup match.
