Whitehawk will take their place in the third round draw of the FA Cup for the first time in their history.

Jordan Rose scored a dramatic 95th minute equaliser after journeyman 40-year-old striker Jamie Cureton put the Daggers ahead five minutes into the match.

The Hawks could be drawn home or away against Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea or even Brighton and Hove Albion.

Whitehawk are following the same route as Crawley Town a few years ago, competing well in the FA Cup and then pushing for promotion to the Football League. The Hawks have a way to go achieve that, but have made enormous strides in the past few years.

The last time two Brighton clubs appeared in the FA Cup third round draw was – never! But they will tomorrow evening (Monday 7 December). Albion will be number 8 and Whitehawk number 63.

Some Hawks fans arrived back at the Old Stiene around 7pm – coach steward David (pictured ) told Brighton & Hove News “it was a great result and achievement”
