It's also a chance of a lifetime for the ballboys who will be manning the sidelines at Home Park the FA Cup replay against mighty Liverpool.

It's going to be a huge game and especially with the atmosphere - it's going to be brilliant game.

The boys were training at the ground to make sure they were in top form for the Liverpool game.

Ball boys co-ordinator Colin Bunney says the game will be one to remember for the lads.

Although it looks easy from the stands when a ball's bouncing at you from different angles and you've got a six foot two centre half chasing the ball as well - it can be a bit intimidating.

They might not see another game like this for another 30 to 40 years so my advice to them is enjoy it as best as they can.They can't sit down and watch it like the average supporter. They need to be on their toes but enjoy it and they'll always remember it.
