FC Halifax Town will take their earnings from this season’s FA Cup in prize money and TV money to more than £24,000 - with another lump sum in store if they beat Wycombe next Sunday.

Town were given £12,500 for winning in the fourth qualifying round against Guiseley, and are believed to be receiving around £12,000 for having their game with Wycombe moved to Sunday to be part of the BBC’s Final Score coverage.

If they beat Wycombe, they will get a further £18,000, taking the total to around £42,500.
