Fulham's Record Goalscorer Gordon Davies Leaves Craven Cottage
23 March 1991
After 450 appearances and 178 goals in two different spells for the Whites, Gordon 'Ivor' Davies left the club. A permanent crowd favourite, he scored 20 goals or more in each of the seasons from 1980/81 to 1983/84. His goals helped Fulham rise from Third Division mediocrity to being on the brink of promotion to the top flight. Today, where it's a rarity for a player to stay at the same club for such a long time, it is difficult to see Ivor's record ever being broken.
Whites Knocked-Out Of FA Cup By Non-League Opposition For First Time
15 November 1991
In the First Round of the FA Cup in the 1991/92 season, Fulham played non-League Hayes FC at Craven Cottage. Goalless at half time, two second half goals from the visitors meant Fulham had the embarrassment of falling at the first hurdle of the competition. It was the first and only time since the League was extended to four divisions (just after World War One) that the Whites have lost to non-League competition in the Cup.
