Beckham look-a-like Jamie Gleeson is to play in his first televised match in the FA Cup.

A David Beckham impersonator is to play in his first televised football match tomorrow.

Jamie Gleeson plays for Blue Square Bet South side Dorchester Town, who take on Plymouth Argyle in the FA Cup first round.

The 27-year-old told BBC Sport: "It's my first game on live TV, I'm going to really enjoy it and soak up the camera.

"I do a bit of care for a bloke in a wheelchair. I'm a David Beckham impersonator also while a lot of the boys say I look like Rylan from X Factor. I don't really see it.

"This is the biggest game of my career and the biggest game of the team's career. Trust me, we have to put our lives and soul into this game and it is a big, big game. We want to do well and show the cameras we can play."

Dorchester's squad also features electricians, builders and a house husband.
