Huddersfield Town’s FA Youth Cup Fourth Round tie at Stoke City will be played on the evening of Wednesday 16 January 2013.

The game is will kick off at 7pm at Stoke City’s Britannia Stadium.

Town were deserving 3-0 winners at Hartlepool United in the Third Round of the competition (click HERE for a full match report); it is the first time the young Terriers have made it to the final 32 since the 2005/06 season, when they were defeated 2-1 at Carlisle United. 

The Town and Stoke youngsters have met in the competition once before – on that occasion in the 1975/76 season, Town were 2-0 winners at the Old Leeds Road ground in front of a crowd of 610. 

Stoke’s youngsters play in the Barclays Under 18 Premier League National Group B, sitting fourth out of seven teams, and recorded an impressive 4-0 win at Brighton & Hove Albion in the Third Round.
