25 January ~ Premier League Norwich City will go into their FA Cup fourth-round tie against Luton Town of the Conference this weekend knowing they are favourites. However, that would not always have been the case. In the 1959 FA Cup Norwich City were a Division Three South team yet reached the semi-finals. There they lost to Luton Town of Division One, who went on to lose the final to Nottingham Forest.
