Dorchester Town’s FA Cup first round match at home to Plymouth Argyle has been chosen for live television coverage by ESPN.

The tie between the Blue Square Bet South hosts and the League Two visitors will kick-off at 4.30pm on Sunday, November 4.

Dorchester left it late to book their place in the competition proper, beating Suffolk side Bury Town with two goals in the dying minutes of their 3-1 victory.

ESPN will also televise Cambridge City v MK Dons (7.30pm, Friday, November 2), while ITV will screen Braintree v Tranmere (12.30pm, Sunday, November 4).

Being selected for live TV coverage is worth £63,800 per club.
