They came in their thousands, literally, to watch a hugely memorable day for Potters Bar Town. They got that and then some as the Scholars produced drama worthy of the famous old competition. But just how did the players do? Find out as Potters Bar Edition's Neil Metcalfe gives his player ratings.
Potters Bar Town:
R'avan Constable: 9 - A penalty save was just the icing on the cake for the bubbly character. What impressed was his handling, especially from crossing. Even after taking a bang, he came out and claimed everything. A huge boost for the players ahead of him.
Chris Doyle: 6 - Quieter than usual and replaced after 65 minutes. Still brought his positive presence to the team and as the longest-serving player will have enjoyed this more than most.
Andy Lomas: 7 - His goal definitely he claimed and who would argue. Part of an almost impregnable defence up until the change of the defence, the switch to a back three allowed him to get further forward.
George Craddock: 8 - Workmanlike performance with some incredibly important tackles. Nothing was coming through the middle and he was one very vital reason for that.
James Budden: 8 - Could have been the hero from a couple of corner but was just inches away from connecting properly. In the team for his defending though and that was spot on.
George Quarrington-Carter: 8 - Formed such a good partnership with Budden that it is difficult for any team to get beyond them. Against Barnet was no difference. Tackled like a demon and headed most things away when required.
Thomas Gogo: 6 - Can be such a livewire but looked off the pace and out of touch at times. Calmed down after the break when he began to play with more sense and simplicity. Sacrificed as part of the tactical switch.
Keagan Cole: 8 - I never know whether he's the playmaker of the midfield two or whether it is meant to be George Craddock. Today he looked the more likely to open Barnet up but still put his foot in when needed. One thumping challenge on the sideline in front of the main stand was proof of that.
Josh Hutchinson: 6 - Never given a moment's peace until very late on. Still didn't get a sight of goal though so never had a chance to continue his fantastic form this season.
Imedd Kartitia: 7 - Impressed me, certainly in the spell before half-time. Began to start spraying passes about and if he can learn from that and build on it, then he will be a huge asset to the club for the remainder of the year.
Ben Ward-Cochrane: 7 - Got into a desired forward position later on but still had moments when he was out wide. His pace will always give defences moments of panic and he will relish the chances in the replay.
Jack Humphrey: - Came on for Chris Doyle in the 65th minute and allowed the Scholars to switch to a back three. Very solid when he did too.
Ryan Young: ¬- Part of the double substitution that helped change the game. Didn't have the impact his fellow wing-back did but still managed to get forward to great effect.
George Nicholas: - Late introduction to add a physical presence to the forward line. Certainly did that.
