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.

If Stats Won Games: Small Victories by Kropotkin123
If you think the Premier League is over analysed with meaningless stats by meaningless contributors, have I got a treat for you! With six games to go and a 44% chance of relegation even if we win all six, my attention has turned to more realistic, less fruitful objectives.
