It’s the start of the most widely-anticipated youth competition this week for the Royals – our Under-18s meet Millwall under the Madejski Stadium floodlights this Thursday.
Reading U18 vs Millwall U18
FA Youth Cup, third round
Thursday 14th December 2017, 7pm
“An unforgiving competition!” – David Dodds on Thursday’s FA Youth Cup tie…13 December 2017
It’s a competition which has propelled careers far and wide – including a number of Royals players who have made headway into the later rounds before carving out successful careers as professionals!
And it always has all the drama that football has to offer – there’ll be a winner on the night with a place in round four the prize, while the other side’s tournament will come to an early end.
The Lions, like Reading, enter at the third-round stage – it’s the first game of this year’s competition for both teams. And while the London side don’t play in the top tier like the Royals, they sit second in the U18 Professional Development League South after a strong start to the campaign.
Entry costs £3 Adults and £1 Concessions, with free parking available at the stadium. Click the banner below for full information.
