From a story of success to one of misfortune - former Scotland striker Denis Law once scored six goals in a fourth-round game, but still ended up on the losing side. The fixture in question took place in 1961, during Law's first spell at Manchester City. Playing against second tier Luton Town at Kenilworth Road, Law had scored all of City's goals as the Division One side led the Hatters 6-2 before the game was abandoned in the 69th minute because of a waterlogged pitch. The scoreline was subsequently wiped and the game played from scratch a few days later. Denis Law Denis Law won the FA Cup in 1963 with Manchester United "At the time, I was fairly relaxed about it," Law, now 74 - who also played for Huddersfield Town, Torino and most famously, Manchester United - tells BBC Sport. "I was only young. I just thought, it doesn't matter, we will beat them in the second game anyway. As it turned out, when we played again the pitch was far worse. The pitch was so muddy the ball didn't really roll at all." Law did score again, but this time City lost 3-1. "It just turned out to be a disaster," he adds. "The feeling at losing was far worse than the frustration at the first match being abandoned. We just felt it was a case of turning up and getting the same result." To top it all off, those six goals would have ensured Law's name went into the FA Cup history books. If they had counted, he would have finished as the 20th century's top scorer in the FA Cup with 47 goals. That honour instead went to former Liverpool striker Ian Rush, who scored 44. "I never scored six in a game after that," Law says. "The most I got was four, when I was at Manchester United. The only time I scored six was in a five-a-side game after I retired."
