Date confirmed in FA Youth Cup

27th September 2017

YORK City's home tie against Harrogate Railway Athletic in the second qualifying round of the FA Youth Cup will take place at Bootham Crescent next Tuesday night (7.45pm).

However, supporters should also be aware that the game will be moved back 24 hours if City's first team is involved in a home replay in the FA Cup third qualifying round against South Shields.

City's Under-18s have been well supported so far in the FA Youth Cup - beating Tadcaster Albion and Harrogate Town to progress to the second qualifying round stage of the competition.

Youth team manager Steve Torpey is hoping fans will again show their support for the club's youngsters against Railway.

Entry costs just £3 for adults and £1 concesssion.

Meanwhile, the Under-18s will be seeking a return to winning ways in the EFL Youth Alliance League North East when they visit Lincoln City on Saturday morning (kick-off 11am).

Striker Flynn McNaughton was on target for City last weekend when they lost 2-1 against Burton Albion.

"It was not one of our better games," Torpey reflected. "But we were without two players due to injury (Harry Thompson and Noah Jackson) and striker Ryan Edmonson was away on first team duty."

In the absence of the trio, Torpey took the opportunity to give Under-16 players Will Jackson and Dominic Jackson run-outs as second half substitutes.

Both Thompson, who suffered a gashed knee against Harrogate Town, and Noah Jackson (ankle) are expected to return to action this weekend.

City's on-going involvement in the FA Youth Cup has led to the re-scheduling of the club's opening reserve team fixture of the season against Mansfield Town.

The game will now be played on Tuesday November 7, kick-off 1pm, at Wigginton Road.

City line-up V Burton Albion: Whitley, Kemp, Lawrence, Ward (W.Jackson 75), Rogerson (C), Watson, Dyer, Haswell, McNaughton, Harrison (D.Jackson 75), Overton (Berry 55). Unused substitute: Wilton.
