Youth Cup Preview

12 December 2012

Brentford under-18s v Royals under-18s

The Royals Academy take on Brentford in the Third Round of the FA Youth Cup tonight – kick off 7pm at Griffin Park.

The Bees reached this stage with a 5-1 victory over Barnet in the First Round, followed by a 3-2 victory over Brentwood in the next stage.

This is the Royals' first fixture in the cup this season – but they have been in outstanding form in the league, topping their National Group One table and scoring 40 goals in 14 games.

Brentford’s Youth Team play in the Under-18 Professional Development League Two South and compete against other clubs operating Category Two Football Academies in the south of the country. 

First team debutant Dominic Samuel featured in this competition in the past couple of years, as did Gylfi Sigurdsson in 2007/08 - so it's well worth keeping tabs on!

Full team news will be confirmed prior to kick off - whilst live updates will be available via our Facebook and Twitter feeds.

Ticket Prices - Available on the night at Griffin Park
Adults: £3 
Concessions: £1

By Car
Leave the M4 at junction 2 and take the A4, going around the Chiswick Roundabout so that you end up coming back on yourself. Continue along the A4 and at the first roundabout take a left onto the B455 (Ealing Road). The ground is located about half a mile down this road on your right. There is no parking at the ground for supporters. So apart from a small pay and display car park in Layton Road (first right off Ealing Road) which costs £5 for free hours (but is free after 6.30pm), it is street parking. 

By Train
The nearest railway station is Brentford. This is around a five minute walk away from the ground. This station is on the London Waterloo to Reading line - to get from the station to the ground, exit onto Station Road. Take the first right into Orchard Road, right again into Windmill Road and then first left into Hamilton Road which leads into New Road and the ground.
