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 Peterborough Sports and Chorley.
It is the fifth 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, Maltby Main lost out 2-1 to Frickley Athletic and Torquay thumped Lymington 7-0.

Peterborough Sports play their football in the Southern League Division One Central where they currently sit third. In the last round of the FA Cup, they knocked out Boston United with a 2-0 victory.
Opponents Chorley are running away with the National League North, winning nine, drawing two and losing none. It will be their first game of this season’s tournament. Last year they got all the way to the First Round Proper when they ended up losing out to Fleetwood Town.
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.
