If memory serves, Tow Law got Shrewsbury in the next round, which presumably went to a replay as the third round draw (12,30pm on the radio on Monday, those were the days) came out as Tow Law or Shrewsbury v Arsenal.
Tow Law took a bit of finding on a London school atlas back then!

The Tow Law v Shrewsbury game was postponed a few times, hence the cup draw stating the winners would play Arsenal. When the game was played it ended up 1-1 with Tow Law absolutely battering Shrewsbury with the help of a gale force wind behind them in the first half.Tommy Henderson scored for the Lawyers in the first half, who continued to push Shrewsbury back in the second half despite playing against the gale. Frank Clarke (brother of Alan Clarke of Leeds and England) equalised with about 10 minutes to go and Shrewsbury went on to win the replay 6-2. Ah, those were the days.
