Kidderminster Harriers v West Ham United selected for live BBC TV coverage

FA Cup trophy

 

West Ham United's Emirates FA Cup fourth round tie at Kidderminster Harriers has been selected for live television coverage and the date and kick-off time set.

The Hammers will travel to Aggborough Stadium on Saturday 5 February for a 12.30pm fixture that will be broadcast live in the UK on BBC1 and the BBC iPlayer.

The Irons will be making their second visit to the Worcestershire club, having previously triumphed 1-0 in a fifth-round tie in March 1994, when Lee Chapman's header ended the non-league side's fairytale run.

National League North club Kidderminster have been on another remarkable FA Cup journey this season, starting in the second qualifying round. Kiddy have beaten Sporting Khalsa, Ware, Bedfont Sports, National League Premier opponents Grimsby Town and FC Halifax Town and EFL Championship side Reading to reach the fourth round proper.

West Ham, meanwhile, defeated fellow Premier League club Leeds United 2-0 at London Stadium to reach the last 32 of the world's most-famous knockout competition.

It promises to be a challenging afternoon for David Moyes' side, with Russell Penn's Kidderminster currently sit fifth in the National League North table, as they target a return to the top tier of non-league football for the first time in seven years.

Ticket details for our trip to the 6,444-capacity Aggborough Stadium will be confirmed in due course.
