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.
