Huddersfield Town’s Under-19 side will enter the West Riding FA County Cup at the Second Round stage with a game at home to Selby Town on Wednesday 24 October 2018.

Having received a bye in the First Round draw, Mark Hudson’s Young Terriers will take on last season’s beaten finalists in a 7.30pm kick-off.

Please note that the game will take place at the home of local side Liversedge FC, Clayborn (Quaker Lane, Cleckheaton, WF15 8DA).

This long-standing competition gives Town’s promising youngsters the chance to take on senior sides from non-league in competitive action and the draw is an appropriately tough one.

Selby Town’s First Team plays in the Toolstation NCEL Division One – the 10th level of the English football pyramid – currently sitting seventh in the table. The Robins reached the final of this competition last season, losing 4-2 to Farsley Celtic.

As per the rules of the competition from the West Riding FA, there is a mandatory £3 charge for adults to attend the game, with fans receiving a complimentary team-sheet upon entry.

There will be no extra time if the score is level after 90 minutes; the tie will go straight to penalties to decide who progresses.

If you cannot make the game on Wednesday evening, the full 90 minutes will once again be broadcast LIVE for FREE on Town’s official YouTube channel, HTTV at youtube.com/officialhtafc, thanks to our friends at Proper Sport.
