FA Youth Cup Date With Blackpool Set
Friday, 19th Jan 2018 15:48

Town’s fifth round FA Youth Cup tie against Blackpool at Portman Road has been set for Tuesday 30th January (KO 7pm).

The U18s, who are coached by Alan Lee and his new assistant Geraint Williams, beat Dagenham and Redbridge 2-1 in Tuesday’s fourth round tie, also at Portman Road, Jack Lankester netting both goals, the first from the penalty spot.

Town have won the Youth Cup on three occasions, in 1973, 1975 and most recently in 2005.

Prior to their game against the Tangerines, who beat Southampton on penalties to claim their fifth round place, the Blues youngsters face Cardiff City at the Leckwith International Stadium on Saturday morning (KO 11am).

They are unbeaten in their last four games including their FA Youth Cup victories over the Daggers and prior to that Everton in the third round.

Town’s U23s are next in action on Monday when they face Sheffield United in the Premier League Cup at Portman Road (KO 7pm).

The Blues have won their first two matches in the competition and are currently second in their group behind Aston Villa, who have played a game more, on goal difference.

Wonder if it will be streamed like the last round,as would like to see the game live,one way or the other.
Geraint Williams mentioned again!Somebody who saw him said it could be an older version of the midfelder we had here of the same name;but Williams in Wales is like Smith here,and similarly the Christian name,although bet he is a Welshman lol ?

Expect I will see for myself on the 30 Jan.

12th man, FA Youth cup rules stipulate a minimum adult charge of £3, even for season ticket holders. I was at the D & R game and would recommend attending the next round if possible.
