U18s to Host Blades in Youth Cup
Saturday, 17th Apr 2021 18:40
Town’s U18s will play Sheffield United at home in their FA Youth Cup quarter-final, the Blades having beaten Bristol City 3-1 at home in their fifth round tie this evening.
The quarter-final tie, which will be at Portman Road, will be played on a date yet to be set before Saturday 1st May.
Town beat Middlesbrough 1-0 away in their fifth round tie last Saturday with defender Albie Armin netting the goal in the 84th minute.
The Blades, who like Town have a category two academy, are currently fourth in Professional Development League Two North.
Town have won the FA Youth Cup on three occasions, in 1973, 1975 and 2005.
Meanwhile, the Blues U18s, who are coached by Adem Atay and Jason Dozzell, beat Coventry City 2-0 in Professional Development League Two South at Playford Road this morning with Ola Bello and Jesse Nwabueze on the scoresheet. The young Blues remain second in the table.

Cook is No Gamechanger by BossMan
I was 12 when we won the FA Cup so saw early success in my early years as a Town fan. How spoilt I was to see Beattie, Wark, Muhren Thijssen et al.
Building a High Performance Team at ITFC by Jaime_Clapham
Change is hard. Building a team is hard. Just reflect on what it’s like within the organisations that you work in, or when you are kicking off a new project. A football club and team are no different.
Marathon Blues 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.
