The BBC will broadcast one game from every round of this season’s FA Cup qualifying, the latest to be selected is this weekend’s match between Lymington Town and Torquay United.
It is the fourth tie of this season’s competition to be chosen after the cameras captured Haverhill Rovers beating Haverhill Borough 2-0, Radcliffe came away from Prestwich Heys with a 2-0 win and Maltby Main lost out 2-1 to Frickley Athletic.

Wessex League Premier Division side Lymington Town are part-timers from Hampshire and have so far earned £11,140 in FA Cup prize money after beating Sandhurst Town (needed a replay), Frimley Green and Lydney Town (also needed a replay).
It will be the first time since the 1920s that Torquay United have played these early rounds of the FA Cup.
2014 saw the Gulls relegated from the Football League but now play in National League South.
Since the news of the selected FA Cup tie was made by the BBC, there was plenty reaction, some loving the choice of game, others were not so keen – take a look at those tweets on the next page.
