Derby County

with two goals on a freezing afternoon in Lancashire.

Jamie Vermiglio

says that his players made the city proud as they’ve defeated a young squad of Derby County. The non-League club will be awarded £500,000 after reaching the fourth round of the

FA Cup


Vermiglio said:

“I’m really proud of them and really pleased for the players who’ve put so much effort in this season. 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.”
