The BBC will broadcast one game from every round of this season’s FA Cup qualifying, the latest to be selected is next weekend’s match between Maltby Main and Frickley Athletic.
It is the third tie of this season’s competition to be chosen after the cameras captured Haverhill Rovers beating Haverhill Borough 2-0 and Radcliffe came away from Prestwich Heys with a 2-0 win.
They met 3 years ago in the FA Cup with Frickley winning 2-0

Their opponents, Frickley Athletic, sit 2nd of the Northern Premier League Division One East and are managed by former Maltby manager Spencer Fearn.
The tie will be live on the BBC Sport website, app, iPlayer and Red Button from 12:30pm.
