The eyes of the soccer world were upon The Walks this lunchtime as Football Focus was broadcast live on BBC One ahead of King's Lynn Town's game against Walsall.

Britain's longest-running football programme was presented by Alex Scott with pundits Leon Osman and Dion Dublin there to give their predictions for today's FA Cup first round matches and cast an eye over the Premier League games too.

Alex, Leon and Dion were in the clubhouse surrounded by fans from both the Linnets and the Saddlers.

As Dion told viewers it was a trip down memory lane for him as he had once played briefly for the Linnets.

Among the fans interviewed was Frankie Heron, the schoolboy who is a match-day commentator for the Linnets. Although he admitted he'd really like to commentate on Formula 1.

They also asked viewers to come up with a name for a new Linnets mascot.

Sadly, the Linnets were unable to spring a cup upset against their League Two opponents, losing 1-0.
