  7. Well - we first enetered the FA Cup in 1880 as a non league team ourselves and didn't join a League until 1889 (the Alliance League) . The football league was founded in 1888 although the Wednesday wasn't alowed to join until 1892 - so yes we did lose to non league opposition. I am sure that's not what you meant tho
