The 1886–87 season was the fourth season Stoke took part the FA Cup.[1]

Season review[edit]

Stoke's first FA Cup win finally arrived on 30 October 1886, when Welsh side Caernarfon Wanderers came to the Victoria Ground and were well beaten 10–1.[1] But joy was short lived as Crewe Alexandra again knocked Stoke out this time 6–4.[1]
