Friday, 9th Nov 2018 13:08
Town’s U18s will face Wingate & Finchley or Andover Town at home in the third round of the FA Youth Cup.
The Blues opponents meet in their second round tie at Wingate & Finchley’s Harry Abrahams Stadium next Thursday evening.
Wingate & Finchley play in the Bostik Premier League, while Andover's senior side are in the Sydenhams Football League (Wessex) Premier Division.
The third round tie will be played at Portman Road on a date in December which will be confirmed once the opponents are known.
Last season the young Blues were beaten 2-0 at the fifth round stage at home by Blackpool having defeated Everton 2-1 in round three at Goodison Park and Dagenham & Redbridge at Portman Road, also 2-1, in the fourth round.
Town have won the competition on three occasions, in 1973, 1975 and most recently in 2005.

The Nearly Men by ElephantintheRoom
Throughout the Robson years, Town built an enviable reputation for producing homegrown talent. Young players seemed to slip into the first team almost on demand. For over a decade the team prospered with only the occasional ‘missing piece’ sourced from elsewhere.
John O’Rourke – Unsung Hero by ElephantintheRoom
Town supporters of a certain age look back rather fondly at Bill McGarry’s promotion team of 1967/68. We may be grey. But our memories are vivid. That team of half a century ago signalled something of a rebirth and laid firm foundations for the many good times that lay ahead.
