FA Cup: King's Lynn Town v Stevenage to be shown live on BBC One later this month





King's Lynn Town's tie against Stevenage will kick off live coverage of the FA Cup Second Round later this month.

The tie at the Walks will be broadcast on BBC One and the BBC iPlayer on Saturday, November 26, with the game kicking off at 12.45pm.

It is believed to be the first time that Lynn will have been shown on terrestrial TV with the club's Second Round home tie against Oldham Athletic back in 2006/07 being screened by Sky Sports.

The Linnets defeated League Two Doncaster Rovers 1-0 at the Eco-Power Stadium on Saturday to reach this stage.

In a statement on their social media feed, Lynn said: "We have had confirmation that our FA Cup second round fixture has been selected for TV coverage.

"The match will be shown live on BBC One and kick-off at 12.45pm on Saturday 26th November. Ticket information, including hospitality packages will be released shortly."
