FA Youth Cup Tie Against Exeter at Portman Road on Saturday
Monday, 11th Nov 2019 16:19
Town’s second-round FA Youth Cup tie against Exeter City will take place at Portman Road on Saturday afternoon (KO 2pm).
The U18s, who are coached by Adem Atay, defeated King’s Lynn Town 6-1 in the first round last week to set up the meeting with the Grecians.
Exeter beat local rivals Plymouth Argyle 1-0 at Home Park in their round one match late last month.
Admission costs £3 for adults and £1 for concessions with only the East of England Co-op Stand open.
The winner of Saturday’s match will face Cardiff City away in the third round. That tie must be played prior to Saturday 14th December.
Last season the Town youngsters were beaten 4-1 by Watford at the last 16 stage of the competition.
The Blues have won the FA Youth Cup on three occasions, in 1973, 1975 and 2005.

We Should Encourage the Club and the League to Stream All Games by rugbytomc
In an ideal world, all League One clubs for next season would take the extra steps of temperature checks at the turnstiles with entry refused for anyone with a temperature and also insist on every fan entering the ground wearing a mask for the entirety of their time in the ground.
Euro Glory for Town by clivebleedingthomas
This was the season in which we had a realistic chance of winning the Treble - it sounds like complete fantasy now, but it happened. Our hopes of FA Cup glory had been finished, along with Kevin Beattie’s career as a Town player, at Villa Park.

As if going to an FA Cup semi-final was not stressful enough, I had added stress. I travelled on a Supporters Club coach, on board many families, including my father and my wife
