Seems like confusion all round! Could hlecter perhaps give us a clue what s/he was after with the question & why Wycombe fit the bill?

I didn`t set the question -that was Hugh L.
Afraid I got my facts mixed up,Wycombe were the first club to reach an FA Cup semi-final from
outsde the top two divisions.They were in Division 1 at the time (the third league after the Premiership and the championship).The Wanderers were promoted to the League in 1993.
i`m intrigued to see the right answer Hugh!

I think that the question has not been answered yet - see Hugh's last post on the previous page

Dysart is right.

In 1912 Swindon were still members of the Southern League when they reached the semis. This is before the expansion of the Football League beyond two divisions.

Since the League expanded in the 1920s, it is correct that no non-league side has got beyond the Fifth Round
