U18s to Host Swansea in FA Youth Cup
Friday, 17th Nov 2023 13:09
Town’s U18 have drawn Swansea City at home in round three of the FA Youth Cup.
Following the Blues’ promotion to the Championship, the youngsters no longer have to take part in rounds one and two.
Like Town, the Swans have a category two academy and are currently seventh in Professional Development League Two South, one point and one place above the Blues having played a game more.
Last season, the U18s reached the quarter-finals before losing 4-2 after-extra-time to West Ham United at Portman Road having been reduced to 10 men.
Third round ties must be played before Saturday 16th December 2023 with games taking place at clubs' main stadiums.
