Huddersfield Town’s Under-17s side will compete in the Cornwall-based Endorsed Cup this summer.
As preparations continue for the side’s EPPP’s Category 4 fixtures, the Young Terriers will travel to West Cornwall for a pre-season tournament.
The Cup will take place between Friday 20 July and Saturday 21 July, the same time as Town’s Under-19s compete in the Brighouse Tournament.
The first ever Endorsed Cup, will see Town lined up against sides from Mousehole AFC (First Team/Elite Development Players), Newcastle United and Bolton Wanderers.
Mousehole AFC, who host the tournament, currently compete in the Carlsberg South West Peninsular League Division One West league (11th tier of English football) and finished fourth last season.
Not only this, but the Seagulls reached the Cornwall FA Senior Cup Final for the first time since the Club was founded.
Town will face Mousehole in the Semi-Finals of the tournament on Friday 20 July; 5.30pm kick-off at Trungle Parc (TR19 6AZ). The match will then be followed by Bolton Wanderers vs Newcastle United.
The losers in the Semi-Final will then play a Third Placed Play-Off at 1pm on Saturday 21 July 2018 at the Trungle Parc, with the Endorsed Cup Final taking place after it at 4pm.
Tickets for the competition are available NOW online, priced at £19.99 for adults and £10 for Under-16s and 65s and over. Click HERE to buy online now!
