There will be three games from next month’s FA Cup First Round Proper which will be televised live over the weekend.

Starting on Friday 5 November, when FC United Of Manchester make the short trip to face League One outfit Rochdale and that will be screened live on ESPN.

That is followed just under 24 hours later by League One high-fliers Huddersfield Town’s trip to Conference team Cambridge United at 5.30pm on Saturday 6 November.

The final game of the weekend to be televised is another interesting tie, as Sheffield Wednesday head to Haig Avenue to play Southport and that match kicks-off on ITV at midday on Sunday 7 November. The draw for the Second Round will also take place on the Sunday afternoon.
