Liverpool or Arsenal Await U18s in Youth Cup Semi-Final
Monday, 19th Apr 2021 12:41
Town’s U18s will play Liverpool or Arsenal at home in the semi-finals of the FA Youth Cup if they beat Sheffield United in their quarter-final tie.
The Blues, the only non-Premier League side still in the competition, host the Blades, who beat Bristol City 3-1 in their fifth round tie on Saturday, on a date yet to be set.
The Gunners will visit Merseyside for their tie with their date also still to be confirmed but with both matches taking place before Saturday 1st May.
Semi-final ties must be staged by Saturday 15th May, while the final will be scheduled prior to Saturday 29th May.
The other semi-final will see Newcastle United or Aston Villa at home to West Bromwich Albion or Everton.
Town's U18s, who are coached by Adem Atay and Jason Dozzell, beat Southend 4-1 at home in round one, won 5-0 away at Chelmsford in the second round, then dramatically came from behind to beat Fulham, who have a category one academy, 3-2 at Portman Road in round three.
They followed that up with a 3-1 home victory over Swindon before a 1-0 win away against another category one academy, Middlesbrough, in round five.
Town have won the competition on three occasions, in 1973, 1975 and 2005.

How many others on the site remember April 15 1961, the day, as TWTD recalls, when Town last beat Lincoln away in the league?
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.
Accentuate the Positive, Eliminate the Negative and Don’t Mess with Mr Inbetween by dusth
Tracking through the forums and reading the comments on TWTD is a weird rollercoaster these days, more extremely polarised and more vitriolic than I can remember. We’ve never fallen so far and regretted it so much.
