All Whites goalkeeper Max Crocombe has played his part in a classic English FA Cup giant-killing, as fourth-tier side Grimsby Town stunned Premier League cellardwellers Southampton.
The scalp is Grimsby’s latest upset in the FA Cup this season, already knocking out second-tier Luton Town, and third-tier sides Plymouth Argyle, Burton Albion and Cambridge United.
In the fifth round of the game’s oldest cup competition, English League Two outfit Grimsby took a 2-1 victory, advancing to the quarter-finals.
Playing his part, two-cap All White Crocombe made three saves, as Grimsby booked their spot in the quarter-finals, where they’ll face another Premier League side in the form of Brighton & Hove Albion.
Sitting 16th in League Two, a pair of penalties to midfielder Gavan Holahan put Grimsby 2-0 up, before Southampton nabbed a consolation effort through Duje Caleta-Carr.
Even with Southampton currently bottom of the Premier League, the relegation-threatened Saints still sit 64 places above Grimsby on the English football ladder.
Southampton weren’t the only Premier League side stunned, as Tottenham Hotspur fell to an upset 1-0 defeat to second-tier Sheffield United.
Manchester United also kept their winning ways, earning a late 3-1 victory over West Ham United to reach the last eight.
