Kettering Town becomes the highest scoring team in the FA Cup, surpassing Tottenham Hotspur

According to the FA Cup’s official Twitter handle, Kettering Town, who ply their trade in the sixth tier of English football have surpassed Tottenham Hotspur as the highest goal-scoring team, after notching four goals against Barwell in the FA Cup second qualifying round.

Spurs have not had much success with accolades and achievements however, this particular achievement was one held in a long duration by the team.

Now with the early rounds of the FA Cup starting, Kettering Town have surpassed Spurs who stand at 906 goals by netting their 908th strike in the competition.

Kettering Town was once on the verge of filing for administration due to their inability to secure a new ground but was saved by a crowdfunding campaign. What a way to honour the fans by writing their name in the history books.

Although the record might again be broken once the big teams enter the fold, it is still an exceptional job done by the team playing in the National League North. For now, they have their moment under the sun.

Tottenham Hotspur will be looking to reclaim the top seat and their dominance over the particular stat, with the FA Cup Round 1 starting on November 5.

Antonio Conte’s men have started the season brilliantly and currently sit third in the premier league, just one point below the first position.

It is a drastic change as compared to the previous seasons and it seems like Conte’s tendency to win at all costs is inculcating well on the team.

More Tottenham News:

With the trophy cabinet at White Hart Lane still empty, Conte could be the first manager to bring silverware to the club and there is no better way to start than winning the historic FA Cup, a competition which sees the participation of 700 teams.

As for the record, it would be wise to appreciate the effort made by the sixth-tier side and registering their name in the history books,
