Brackely Town’s FA Cup first round replay against Gillingham at St James Park will be live on BT Sport next Monday, November 18.

The match, which will be Saints’ first on national TV, has been moved to the Monday to avoid a clash with England’s friendly against Germany.

It will give Saints a huge financial boost, with the club set to receive £33,750 in TV money, adding to the £25,000 already secured for getting to the first round.

The game will be all-ticket, with tickets on sale from 8am-10pm on Wednesday and Thursday from the clubhouse. Tickets can be bought in person or by ringing the club on 01280 704077. Prices: £12 for adults, £6 for concessions and over 60s and £3 for U18s.

Brackley were seconds away from going through to the second round but Bradley Dack’s 97th minute strike forced a replay in Saturday’s dramatic 1-1 draw.

Jon Brady’s side will face a trip to Conference Premier side Macclesfield Town in the second round if they overcome Gillingham in Monday’s replay.
