Former Premier League star Alan Smith was on the losing side as Notts County were defeated by Salford City.
Non league side Salford City demonstrated the magic of the FA Cup as they produced an inspired performance to beat Notts County.
Salford won 2-0 at home to the League Two side, to progress to the second round of the competition.
Former Manchester United stars Gary Neville, Paul Scholes and Nicky Butt were in the crowd to see Salford's memorable win, having bought the club along with Phil Neville and Ryan Giggs a year earlier, dubbed the Class of '92 in reference to their breakthrough at Old Trafford more than two decades ago.
From the stands they saw a former teammate end up on the losing side. Alan Smith, now 35, was playing in midfield for Notts County and end up on the losing team.
Neville and Scholes played alongside Smith at Manchester United, while he was a teammate of Butt's at Newcastle.
It was at Leeds United where Smith made his name as a striker, bursting onto the scene as a teenager, and going onto win England international caps. He was part of the side which reached the latter stages of the Champions League, and was a real fan favourite at the club.
When the Whites were relegated from the Premier League in 2004, his decision to join rivals Manchester United stunned football, and ruined his legacy at Elland Road.
He started off well at Old Trafford, before a serious injury kept him sidelined for a year, and Sir Alex Ferguson changed his position from striker to midfielder.
It is a transition he continued at Newcastle, and latterly with MK Dons and Notts County, but never to the same success as he enjoyed in his early years.
Seeing him perform in the televised fixture was a flashback for fans of his former clubs and a disappointing reminder of how a promising career has trailed off badly over the second half of his career.
Once renowned for his eye for goal, scoring 52 times for Leeds and 11 for Manchester United, Smith has netted only three times since signing for Newcastle in 2007.
Here is a look at how supporters of his former clubs reacted to his performance...

Such a shame watching Alan Smith at this level he was great at United gave everything even if he wasn't quite the class of some others.— Stretford End 85 (@StretfordEnd85) November 6, 2015
How did Alan Smith ever play in centre midfield for United?! Even at this level he looks lost, he's just running round getting dirty!— Paul Lynch (@PLynch85) November 6, 2015
Alan Smith was absolutely awful in this Salford game. Might get re-signed by Leeds on that performance.— Eric Nicolson (@C_ENicolson) November 6, 2015
