Dylan Crowe (pictured) and Levi Andoh make their Town debuts and Tommy Smith, Allan Viral, Zanda Siziba and Ross Crane their full Blues bows in this evening’s Papa John’s Trophy tie at Crawley.
David Cornell, the most senior player, skippers from between the sticks with former England U16, U17 and U18 international Crowe at right-back, Smith, 18, at left-back and Andoh and Corrie Ndaba the centre-halves.
In midfield, Liam Gibbs, 17, is joined by Viral, 18, and 17-year-old Siziba, while Tyreece Simpson, 18, plays down the centre of the attack with Keanan Bennetts on the right and Crane on the left.
Among the six subs is forward Jack Manly, aged 16 years and 22 days. If he makes it on to the field the East Bergholt High School pupil will become Town’s second-youngster ever player.
Crawley change all 11 of their players following their 6-5 FA Cup win at Torquay on Sunday and name only four substitutes.
Crawley: Nelson, McNerney, Adebowale, Sesay, Ferguson, Allarakhia, Khaleel, Ashford, Galach, German. Subs: Tsaroulla, Kowalczyk, Burnett, Al-Hussaini.
Town: Cornell, Crowe, Andoh, Ndaba, Smith, Viral, Gibbs, Siziba, Bennetts, Simpson, Crane. Subs: Holy, Armin, Healy, Chirewa, Manly, Z Brown. Sam Purkiss (London).

Climbing Up the Walls by Mullet
The world has undoubtedly changed and with it, until some indeterminate point, football has done too.

A Head in the Right Place by NormEmerges
A nice victory against Wigan, well played the Town, and you achieved it without what many consider our best player. For the second match in a row, Flynn Downes was left out because “his head wasn’t in the right place”.
Pyramid Strong by Mullet
On Friday the members of League One voted by majority to instigate a salary cap. In doing so they not only limit everybody in the division to spending £2.5m per season, but they limit themselves in making the transition to established second tier side or beyond.
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.
