Maidstone United will cash in on their FA Cup first round match at League 2 side Stevenage.

Stones will get a £12,500 television fee after the tie was moved to Sunday, November 9 (2pm) as part of the BBC's new interactive Final Score.

The clash is one of eight matches moved to a new Sunday slot at 2pm with goals and key moments from all the games shown to the BBC 1 audience as they happen.

In a first for FA Cup coverage, the BBC are giving extra prominence to the early rounds of the competition, placing lower league and non-league clubs in the spotlight.

Fans will be able to enjoy every twist and turn: if there’s a goal in any of the eight games, Final Score will show it; if there’s a penalty, the programme will go live to see it being taken; and if a match is reaching an exciting conclusion, the audience will be able to witness all the drama.
