North Wales will feature on the BBC’s Coral Challenge Cup coverage for the second consecutive year, while the Our League app will show the third round tie between the British Army and Ince Rose Bridge.

North Wales suffered a shock defeat to amateur outfit Thatto Heath last year in the campaign, and their tie away to Rochdale Mayfield will be shown live on the BBC on Saturday February 8, with a lunchtime kick-off.

The game will be immediately followed by British Army’s attempt to reach the fourth round for the first time in their history, as they host Wigan community club Ince Rose Bridge in Aldershot live on Our League.

Elsewhere in the third round, there are three all-League 1 ties, as Barrow face London Skolars, Hunslet host Coventry and Newcastle travel to Keighley.
