Youngsters Set To Start FA Youth Cup Campaign

Youngsters Set To Start FA Youth Cup Campaign

The Alex youth team will begin their FA Youth Cup campaign on Tuesday night against Evo-Stik's North Ferriby United in the First Round of the competition.

A mix of youngsters from the U-16s right to the likes of Max Clayton & Nick Powell will make up the side at North Ferriby and the prize at stake is a trip to Huddersfield Town in the second round.

The Youth Cup is one competition the Alex take pretty seriously and have a proud record over recent seasons. Last season we beat Fylde, Tranmere and Bolton before crashing out on penalties, rather harshly, to Leeds United in the fourth round.

2009-2010 also saw penalty heartbreak. Having beaten Leeds and Bradford, we were ahead a couple of times in a 3-3 at holders Arsenal only to see hopes ended in a 5-4 penalty shoot out win for the Gunners.

A good performance in this years cup will go some distance to making a considerable statement over the recent EPPP changes that the Premier League, Football League and Football Association plan to bring in by 2013.

It's a 7:15pm kick off at North Ferriby tomorrow. Ticket prices are £4 Adults, £2 Concessions, £1 U-16s.
