It’s that time of the year again – our Under-18 squad will be looking to take the first of many steps in the FA Youth Cup when their campaign begins at Cambridge United on Tuesday evening.
Cambridge United U18 vs Reading U18
Tuesday 11th December 2018, 7pm
The Abbey Stadium
FA Youth Cup, Third Round
It’ll be a case of swapping Saturday morning football for a winner-takes-all fixture under the floodlights – one team goes into the hat for the Fourth Round, and one exits the competition for another year. Extra time and penalties loom if the game isn’t decided in the requisite 90 minutes.
And our boys will be up against a side that are building up a bit of steam in the competition. AFC Sudbury and Yeovil Town have each been beaten by the Category 3 side… the winner will visit either Aston Villa or Swansea City in the Fourth Round after the draw was made last week.
If you’re able to attend the game, your support of our Academy will be welcome and appreciated.
All supporters will be seated in the Main Stand, and entry will be charged at £5 Adults and £1 Under-18s. Tickets will be available to buy on arrival at the Abbey Stadium.
