Date arranged for Youth Cup trip to Colchester

Tuesday-night visit to Weston Homes Community Stadium…

24 January 2018

The latest location for our FA Youth Cup run will be Colchester United’s Weston Homes Community Stadium – our Under-18s will head there on Tuesday 6th February for a 7pm kick-off.

We’ve seen off two opponents so far, in dramatic circumstances… firstly Millwall were beaten 2-1 at Madejski Stadium, before a quite remarkable 4-3 after-extra-time win against Charlton, snatching victory from the jaws of defeat!

And now, in round five, we’re one step away from the quarter-final – we could have our name in the hat with just seven other contenders!

But the U’s won’t be easy opposition – they have come through four rounds to get to this stage.  They were pushed closest at the first stage, where they trailed 3-0 to Cheshunt – but they overturned the deficit to win 5-4!  Then they overcame Crewe 2-0, Bishop’s Stortford 5-0, and most recently MK Dons by a 2-0 scoreline.

So it has the prospects of being an entertaining game – and it’s open for our supporters to come along and get behind our Under-18s.

Prices are as follows, with entry paid on arrival on matchday:

FA Youth Cup fifth round prices
Adults £7
Concessions £5
Under-14s £3
Under-8s £1
