Chorley Could Make £500K From Cup Run

Chorley manager Jamie Vermiglio thinks his club could be in line to bank £500K from the club's FA Cup run.

The National North club put Derby County out of the competition earlier today.

"I'm really proud of them and really pleased for the players who've put so much effort in this season," said Vermiglio.

"For a team who were bottom of National League North after four games with zero points, to get to round four is unbelievable.

"First and foremost, it's the confidence it gives us – Chorley is on the map now and for us it's a boost. We're in the limelight and it's good to be out there getting that publicity.

"Secondary is the financial side of it. We've made around £250,000 before today, goodness knows what it'll be now.

"It'll certainly be £300,000 or £400,000. We could possibly get to £500,000 now and for a club like us, not only does it save us, it enables us to grow."
