Merseyside non league teams Skelmersdale United and Marine have been given a financial boost after their FA Cup ties were picked for TV coverage.

Skelmersdale’s first round clash away to Harrogate Town will be shown live on BT Sport on Friday November 6 with a kick off time of 7.45pm.

With Marine’s tie away at Colchester United being shown on the BBC digital platforms on Saturday November 7 with a 3pm kick off.

With no fans allowed at any of the first round games, money gained from the first round and also TV money the clubs will inherit will be a massive boost to their coffers in what remains an uncertain time for many non league clubs.
