Our Under-18s will host Millwall in the third round of the FA Youth Cup at Madejski Stadium on Thursday 14th December, kicking off at 7pm.
With senior teams playing in the Sky Bet Championship, both Reading and Millwall enter at this stage of the competition… a place in round four of the competition awaits the winner.
Before this weekend, the Royals currently lay 11th in the U18 Premier League (South) table, while the Lions’ youth side sat second in the U18 Professional Development League (South) standings.
We reached the quarter-final of the competition two years ago, when a Chelsea side spearheaded by Tammy Abraham were 2-1 winners at Stamford Bridge. Since then, four Royals that were in the squad – Omar Richards, Axel Andresson, Josh Barrett and Sam Smith – have all made senior-team appearances!
So keep the date in the diary and come along to support our fledgling talents as they aim to make the next stage in this year’s instalment of the FA Youth Cup.
Ticket information will be released in due course.
