The fourth qualifying round of the FA Cup gets underway this weekend with several mouth-watering London ties to get your teeth into.
The BBC will broadcast Saturday’s early kick-off between St Albans City and Boreham Wood. The Hertfordshire derby, to be played at Clarence Park, sees local rivals St Albans of the sixth tier pitted against Boreham Wood of the fifth tier, with a large crowd expected to turn out just north of the capital.
Elsewhere, TV commentator Martin Tyler’s club Hampton & Richmond Borough face Truro City at the Beveree. As well as being a well-known Sky Sports commentator Tyler is a big non-league enthusiast. He supports National League Woking and played as a striker for Tolworth-based Corinthian-Casuals, who are currently in the Isthmian League South Division.
The big all-London clash is undoubtedly Dagenham & Redbridge vs Leyton Orient. Relegated last season the Os will travel to their east London rivals who are pushing the play-off positions in the National League. Boss Darren Currie spoke to camera before the big clash:
Other fixtures to look out for include Haringey Borough’s fixture against Heybridge Swifts. The non league outfit play a stone’s throw away from Tottenham Hotspur on White Hart Lane, although their modest stadium is named Coles Park Stadium and holds just 2,500 compared to the 61,559 that will fit in to Spur’s new development just six minutes down the road.
Sutton United, who reached the fifth round of the FA Cup last year, will travel to Paulton Rovers while Slough Town host Folkestone Invicta. Woking host Canvey Island-based Concord Rangers and Dartford travel to Burgess Hill Town.
