It will be an historic weekend for non-league side Taunton Town.

On Sunday 6 November they'll contest the first round of the FA Cup for the first time since 1981.

They'll host Barrow - a club ranked three divisions higher - in front of a record home crowd of 2,500 supporters. The team can't wait for the big day.

It's completely different and to be honest you wouldn't want it any other way.

For example in the last round against Hemel we had 1,200 people here and everything felt different to a league game or any other cup tie.

But as they say that's the magic of the FA Cup and we're delighted to be experiencing that, so we wouldn't want it any other way.
