FC United will travel to Brighton in the second round of the FA Cup after the Seagulls defeated Woking on penalties on Tuesday night.
The Rebels earned their place in round two with a memorable victory over Rochdale and must now conquer League One opposition again for a potential glamour tie in round three.
Meanwhile, FC United are cashing in on interest generated by their FA Cup heroics as fans flock to support the club's ground-breaking community share scheme aimed at raising £1.5m of the £3.5m needed to pay for a proposed new 5,000-capacity stadium in Newton Heath.
The Evo-Stik Premier outfit, who banked £113,000 in prizemoney and TV revenue from their record-breaking run to the second-round, have announced that investment in the shares has already topped £500,000 – just six weeks since the scheme was launched.
FC’s general manager Andy Walsh said: “We’re delighted with the response to the share issue, which is attracting both ordinary fans and wealthy investors alike.”
