NEWS: Alfreton Game On TV

15 November 2012

FA Cup with Budweiser tie at Alfreton chosen by ESPN for live coverage

ORIENT'S FA Cup with Budweiser Round Two tie at Alfreton Town has been selected for live television coverage on ESPN.

The game will take place at Alfreton's Impact Arena on Sunday December 2 with a 3.15pm kick-off.

Both clubs receive a TV fee of £67,925 from the FA. The O's had three ties televised on ESPN during their FA Cup run two years ago - the second round draw at Droylsden and both fifth round matches against Arsenal.

Alfreton, of Blue Square Bet Premier, defeated Wrexham in the first round, while Orient booked their place in Round Two with a 2-0 win at Gloucester City on Wednesday night.

This year's FA Cup run matches the best in The Reds' history, when they also reached the second round in the 2008/09 campaign.

They currently sit 16th in their division, with 21 points from 17 games.

Ticket information for this fixture is yet to be released. Keep checking leytonorient.com for details.
