Youth Cup Date at Boro Set
Tuesday, 6th Apr 2021 17:08
Town’s U18s will face Middlesbrough in their fifth round FA Youth Cup tie behind closed doors at Bishop Auckland's Heritage Park on Saturday afternoon (KO midday).
The young Blues secured their place in the fifth round by beating Swindon 3-1 at Portman Road at the end of last month, while Boro won 1-0 at Swansea on Saturday.
The winners of the Boro-Town tie will face Sheffield United or Bristol City at home in the quarter-finals. That match has to be played before Saturday 1st May.
Saturday’s scheduled Professional Development League Two South match away against the Blades has been postponed.
Town have won the FA Youth Cup on three occasions, in 1973, 1975 and 2005.

Tractor Boy on a Mission by wadey
As some of you may be aware, we lost our little boy Tyler on 1st April 2012, aged just 15 months old. There was no cause declared and he just passed away in his sleep. Since then, I’ve tried to raise as much money for charity in memory of him.
Damned Lies and Football Statistics? by bluesman
Football is possibly the most observed sport of all time, and there is plenty of statistical information available in the public domain to make some informed observations about clubs and managers, and their performance over the years.
From Marcus's Side of the Fence by essexccc
Most of the thinking, including my own, around the possible sale of the club, has quite naturally focused on the possibilities from the club's and supporters' points of view.
