North Ferriby will welcome Chester to the Rapid Solicitors Stadium

North Ferriby United are set for an FA Trophy pay-day when they host Northern Premier Division leaders Chester.

The Villagers, who lost their main sponsor before the start of the season, beat Corby 3-2 in a replay to book their tie with one of the best supported clubs in non-league football.

Chairman Les Hare told BBC Radio Humberside: "Financially there's the prize money as well as playing Chester.

"It'll produce an income greater than any of our sponsors this season."

He added: "The confidence it'll inspire in the rest of the playing staff and everybody connected with the club is immeasurable."

The Trophy tie against their Northern Premier rivals will take place at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium on Saturday, 10 December.
