The BBC TV cameras are heading to Suffolk this weekend as the oldest cup competition in the world kicks off.

The corporation have committed to showing at least one game from every round of the FA Cup, and will start on Saturday in Haverhill.

Haverhill Rovers host cross-town rivals Haverhill Borough in the Extra Preliminary Round, and you’ll be able to watch the action live on the BBC Sport website, app and iPlayer.

Commentator Conor McNamara will be joined by former Watford forward Danny Webber for the 12.30pm kick-off.

Audiences will be able to watch the game live on PC, mobile or connected TV. Matches will also be available live and on-demand on the BBC iPlayer.
