Their impressive 4-1 victory over Yeovil netted the club £36,000 in prize money.

So far, the two FA Cup victories for Hartlepool have accumulated £54,750 in prize money and a win in the second round would almost double that, with an additional £54,000 on offer.

Hartlepool will play Exeter City or Cambridge United in the second round and their replay is scheduled for Tuesday 19th November.

A win in the second round would also mean a first appearance in the FA Cup third round since 2016 for Hartlepool - a game in which they were narrowly defeated 2-1 by Derby County.

Pools beat Yeovil in Dave Challinor’s first game in charge at Pools, having taken over the reigns from Antony Sweeney following a successful spell in caretaker charge.
