FA Cup: BBC to show Lymington Town v Torquay United in second qualifying round

FA Cup
Lymington Town are one of the lowest-ranked teams left in the FA Cup

The BBC will show the FA Cup second qualifying round tie between ninth-tier Lymington Town and former Football League club Torquay United on Saturday.

The tie is live on the BBC Sport website, the Red Button and Connected TVs from 12:20 BST.

Hampshire part-timers Lymington have won through three rounds so far and this is one of the biggest games in the club's history.

Torquay were relegated from the Football League in 2014 and now play in National League South having dropped another division last season.

Kick-off is 12:30 BST. It is one of 80 ties taking place over the weekend.

Teams at this stage are three wins away from reaching the first round proper, when League One and League Two clubs enter.

Lymington, who played in the Wessex League Premier Division, have earned £11,140 in FA Cup prize money this season after entering at the extra preliminary round stage.

This is Torquay's first game in this season's competition with recently-appointed new manager Gary Johnson in charge.

Each winner of a second qualifying round tie will receive £9,000.
