AFC Sudbury's FA Cup first round clash with Colchester United will be screened live on BBC-2.

The clash will kick-off at 7.55pm, on Friday, November 5 and is one of a number of live FA Cup games televised that weekend.

Step 4 Sudbury put out Step 2 Dartford in the last round and will be at home against Colchester United.

The tie has already created enormous interest in west Suffolk, and revenue from TV scheduling will be a huge boost to the Suffolk club.

"The whole club is amazed with the publicity and exposure the club are going to be getting over this draw, - and are already getting," joint first team boss Angelo Harrop, said.

"I just put a message on the group chat saying to the players they have created this, and it's massive credit to them. Now they get a chance to play a professional team like Colchester United and on live television.

"This will be the biggest game of their lives for sure."
