The details for our FA Youth Cup third round tie against Barnsley have now been confirmed.
Taking place at our Academy Stadium at Kingsmeadow on Saturday 28 November, we kick-off this cup campaign at 2pm as the quest for a 10th Youth Cup title begins shortly after last season’s journey ended at the final stage.
The last time we crossed paths with Barnsley in the Youth Cup was back in 2013 when Andreas Christensen and Ruben Loftus-Cheek started as Chelsea won 3-0 and progressed to the quarter-finals, ultimately falling just short as Norwich pipped us to the trophy over the two-legged final.
The Under-18 Premier League game against Fulham originally scheduled for Saturday will be rearranged and the new date communicated in due course. Elsehwere there has been some changes to the details for tomorrow's (Tuesday) Under-17 Premier League Cup game against Southampton, we will now kick-off at 6pm at The Snows Stadium.
