On this day eight years ago, Leeds United suffered one of the most embarrassing defeats in their history as they were knocked out of the FA Cup in the second round by non-league Histon.

The tie was settled by a goal six minutes before half-time by postman Matthew Langston. And while the Whites had their chances to score - they hit the post and had an effort cleared off the line - they were unable to equalise and were arguably the victims of the biggest shock of that year's competition.

But what became of the squad that Gary McAllister selected for that game? Here is a look at the Leeds side that suffered that defeat:

David Lucas

The 38-year-old spent much of his time at Elland Road as the number two, so often found himself in the side for the cup games. He enjoyed more opportunities after leaving for Swindon, and has gone on to join Rochdale and Birmingham City. He now finds himself on Fleetwood's books.

Frazer Richardson

The right-back came through the youth system at Leeds and became the first man to score a goal in the re-branded Championship. He was, perhaps surprisingly, allowed to join Charlton in 2009 and now plays for Doncaster Rovers.

Rui Marques

The former Angola international left Leeds in 2010, having made 96 league appearances for the Whites. He subsequently retired following his exit from the Yorkshire club six years ago.

Lubomir Michalik

The centre-back was the man who was denied by the post and had an effort cleared off the line during the second-half of the game. He stayed with Leeds until 2011 before leaving for Carlisle and subsequently joining Portsmouth. He now plays for Dunajska Streda in his native Slovakia.

Alan Sheehan

The left-back only played 11 times in the league following his permanent move to Elland Road before leaving for Swindon in 2010. The 30-year-old now plays for Luton Town, but his most notable spell came at Notts County, for whom he played more than 100 times.

Andy Robinson

The wide-man joined Tranmere in 2011 after enjoying two loan spells with the club previously. Short spells with Shrewsbury and non-league Stockport followed before his retirement.

Fabian Delph

The 27-year-old is one of two players in Leeds' starting XI to now be plying their trade in the Premier League. He left for Aston Villa in 2009 - though he did return to the Whites on loan in 2012 - and joined Manchester City in 2015. The midfielder has perhaps never quite been able to realise his full potential, but some Leeds fans would undoubtedly love to see him back at some stage in the future.

Jonathan Douglas

Douglas currently plays for Leeds' Championship rivals Ipswich Town. After making 148 league appearances for United, he moved to Swindon and then to Brentford.

Andy Hughes

Though the midfielder enjoyed a somewhat unspectacular spell at Elland Road, he still enjoys cult-hero status amongst the fans due to his work-rate. He would play for Scunthorpe and Charlton before beginning a coaching career. He is currently working at Huddersfield Town.

Robert Snodgrass

No player in that Leeds squad is enjoying as much success currently as Robert Snodgrass. Though Delph may be a part of the more successful team, Snodgrass has become a talisman for Hull City and is winning plenty of admirers with his current form. He initially left for Norwich after the rest of the Leeds side failed to raise their game as much as he did during his final season with the club.

Luciano Becchio

Like Snodgrass and Jonny Howson - who was a substitute against Histon - Becchio left Leeds for Norwich. Unlike the other two however, his career did not move to the next level at Carrow Road. He joined and left Rotherham in 2016, and like Andy Hughes, he remains incredibly popular amongst the Elland Road faithful.


Enoch Showunmi

The striker's time at Leeds failed to capture the imagination. After spells in England and Scotland, he now plays for Wealdstone, the club where the likes of Jermaine Beckford and Vinnie Jones began their careers.

Jonny Howson

The 28-year-old came on shortly before the hour-mark but was unable to make an impact. The academy graduate left for Norwich in 2012, where he remains to this day.
