Date set for FA Youth Cup tie against Blades

27 November 2015

Arrangements made for Blades' visit to Berkshire

Reading Under-18s will face Sheffield United in the third round of the FA Youth Cup at Madejski Stadium on 15th December (kick-off 7pm).

The Blades came through the second round with an impressive 3-0 win in Chesterfield on Tuesday evening to set up the clash with the Royals.

The Tuesday-evening tie will have Adult tickets priced at £3 and Concessions just £1, so make sure you come along to Madejski Stadium to back the young Royals as they look to progress to the next step of the competition!

As recently as the 2013/14 season, we had our best ever run in the competition by reaching the semi-final – eventually though it was Fulham who booked a place in the final by edging a 5-4 aggregate win over two legs, with a 90th-minute winner in the second game.

Our youngsters are currently behind leaders Chelsea in second in the Barclays Under-18 Premier League (South) table, following a 2-1 win away to Aston Villa on Saturday.  The Royals’ Academy starlets will have their sights set on taking their league form and converting in into a cup run by booking a fourth-round place.
