Remember, remember the fifth of November...
Isthmian League Premier Division side Merstham’s Emirates FA Cup first round debut will be shown exclusively live on BT Sport as they play host to League One’s Oxford United.
The seventh-tier club beat Ebbsfleet United in the fourth qualifying round to reach the first round for the first time in the club’s history and have been rewarded with one of the plum ties of the round.
The Moatside, which holds around 2,000 supporters, is sold out for the match which sees Hayden Bird's men pitted against a professional side who play four divisions higher.
To put the gulf between the two sides in context, according to the 2011 census, Merstham village's population is 8,123 whereas Oxford's Kassam Stadium has a capacity of 12,500.
