    It's a bumper-sized episode as Tim Fuell catches up with the four non league managers taking their teams into the Third Round of the FA this weekend.
    First up though, is @FACupFactfile Phil Annets with stats and facts about the four non league clubs involved, their records and the competition this year.
    As a Headteacher in a week that schooling in England became the hot topic, Chorley manager Jamie Vermigglio has quite possibly been the hardest working man in the world, but there's a big football match awaiting... if opposition Derby County are able to field a side and the weather holds up.
    Any other year and Boreham Wood v Millwall would surely have been top billing for those looking for an upset. It still may grab the headlines yet as Wood manager Luke Garrard reveals his side's new mind coach has been the catalyst of their current winning run and they have confidence they could cause this round's cupset.
    The game grabbing the headlines pre-match is Marine v Tottenham Hotspur mainly for the biggest gap ever in the pyramid between two sides facing each other in the 150 year history of the FA Cup. Manager Neil Young is in little doubt of the quality coming to Crosby on Sunday but he's sure his team will be ready - even if they won't have enough to field a full subs bench under the new 9 named substitutes rule.
    Stockport County are no strangers to FA Cup headlines and success but even for them the visit of West Ham is a massive game in a massive year for them now under new ownership. Manager Jim Gannon having just racked up 500 games with the club knows all about what games like this mean to the club, to the fans and also what the fans mean to the club.
    Rounding off the show is Senior Writer at The Non League Paper, David Richardson with news on the latest from the National League including Slough Town's call for season break, further fall-out from the independent report on the Government lottery handout and future funding.
