Accrington Stanley? Who are they?

I was listening to the radio a couple of days ago and heard about Accrington Stanley getting through to the third round of the FA Cup. For many years, I've thought their only contribution to popular culture was the lead up to the punch line 'exactly' in a particularly cheesy, yet memorable milk advert from years gone by.To think I never knew they were one of founder members of the Football League. I guess I wasn't following football in 1889.
