Lincoln City booked their place in the FA Cup first round last night after they cruised past Halifax Town in their qualifying replay last night.

The Imps sealed a 2-0 victory at the Shay thanks to goals from Jake Sheridan and Jamie Taylor.

It was a professional performance by David Holdsworth's side who stretched their unbeaten run to four games.

The reward for beating the Conference North Shaymen was £12,500 in prize money and a home first round tie against Walsall on November 3.

In this week's Echo there will be match reports and analysis of both games, Holdsworth's exclusive column, plus a feature with Conal Platt as well as a preview of the home game with Stockport.

    Good stuff Imps - never sounded in doubt unlike Saturday's drab affair! I too have fingers crossed for a decent cup run in this or the FA Trophy to get some money and fans through the door. UTI

    You wont get a match report on a Wednesday, when there is a paper to sell on a Thursday. Remember they only have one shot at selling every week, and a match report would dilute what some people might be interested in. Stockport next on the list..believe.

    At last some good news for once, and I'm sure many former Imp supporters will be delighted.

    I dare to dream, Man Utd away in the 3rd round. TV money, national exposure, and about £1m in gate reciepts that would see Lincoln through for the next 10 years, a lot like Exeter when they were in a similar boat. Minus Uri Gellar and Michael Jackson

    ...well done lads. Never mind we didn't do the goods in the first game at least we have now got through to the 1st round proper and here's hoping that we can have a cup run that takes us at least to the 3rd round and a game against a 'good' prem side to help bolster the coffers and ease the financial burden on our great club. C'mon you Imps!
