FA Youth Cup game to be played by Saturday 15 December 2018
- FA Youth Cup Third Round draw made
- Town to host Peterborough United
- Date and kick-off time of the game to be confirmed
A Huddersfield Town Academy side will face Peterborough United in the Third Round of this season’s FA Youth Cup.
The draw for the Third Round was made at Wembley Stadium on Friday 9 November 2018, pitting Leigh Bromby’s Young Terriers against the Posh.
The game has to be played before Saturday 15 December 2018 and full confirmation of date, kick-off time and ticket information will be finalised in due course.
Peterborough beat Luton Town in the Second Round at the ABAX Stadium on Tuesday 13 November 2018 to set up the tie.
The Posh youngsters, managed by Matthew Etherington, compete in the EFL Youth Alliance South East league and currently sit sixth with 16 points from 12 games.
Launched in 1952, the FA Youth Cup is the premier competition in Under-18 football.
Unusually for Under-18 games, all FA Youth Cup matches are played at First Team stadia, although some clubs nominate another league-standard ground to play their home games.
There are no replays, so games are decided on the night with use of extra time and penalties if necessary.
Town’s youngsters were defeated at the Third Round stage last season, losing on penalties to Fulham at the John Smith’s Stadium.
The Club’s best performance saw the Under-18s finish runner-up in the competition in the 1973/74 season, losing 2-1 on aggregate to Spurs over the two-legged final.
Town’s Under-17s side is next in action tomorrow (Saturday 10 November 2018) away at Mansfield Town; noon kick-off.
