Billingham Town were rubbing their hands with glee after their 7-0 win over Fleetwood Freeport earned them £7,500 on Saturday.

The FA have substantially increased the competition prize money this season, and Town manager Alan Robinson said that it would make a "huge difference" to the club.

"The FA Cup has certainly got an edge to it, now that there is a lot of prize money on offer," he said.

"It is a lifeline to us, and our chairman is delighted because it will keep the club going into the New Year."

There could be more to come, as there is another £7,500 on offer in the next round.

Town ran riot against the North West Counties League side.

Steve Osbourne set up Paul Rowntree to open the scoring early in the game, then Robbie Hutchinson provided the pass for him to score the second.
