FA Youth Cup draw announced

By Thomas Shepherd

Who said lightning doesn't strike twice? Does it strike three times?

For the third year in succession, the Under 18s have been drawn to play Cirencester Town in the preliminary round of the FA Youth Cup. The only difference this time is it'll be at home rather than a trip to The Corinium. The tie is scheduled to be played during the week beginning 3 September.

The winners of the preliminary round tie will then visit Longwell Green Sports sometime during the week of 17 September.

Let's hope for a bit more luck this year with a possible local derby if we win....
