Chelsea’s Under-18 side is the reigning holder of the FA Youth Cup, having defeated Fulham – the side that knocked Town out at the quarter final stage – over the two-legged final. That win was the Club’s fifth in the competition, with three of those wins coming since 2010.
Now managed by Joe Edwards, the young Blues currently top the Barclays Under-18 Premier League Division One table. They progressed to the Fourth Round of the FA Youth Cup by beating Leeds United 2-0 at Elland Road in Round Three.
Town’s Under-18 side has never won the FA Youth Cup, although it did become the first Yorkshire side to reach the final in 1974 – losing to Tottenham Hotspur over two legs.
Last season’s run to the Quarter Final was the Club’s best in the competition for 40 years.
Managed by Professional Development Coach Tony Carss, the young Terriers reached the Fourth Round thanks to a convincing 2-0 home win over Crystal Palace in Round Three – highlights of which are below.
Carss’s Under-18 side hosts Birmingham City at PPG Canalside on Saturday, noon kick-off, in its latest Professional Development League 2 North game of the season.
