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:
