18s in FA Youth Cup action on Friday

4 November 2021

The Owls Under-18s face Burton Albion in the first round of the FA Youth Cup on Friday.

Kick-off at the Pirelli Stadium is at 7.00pm.

As a result of the cup-tie, our 18s’ league fixture away at Coventry will now take place on Tuesday 23 November (11.30am).

The clash with the Sky Blues was originally scheduled for this Saturday.

Our Under-18s will be looking to replicate their league form in the prestigious Youth Cup competition.

Andy Holdsworth has overseen a strong start to the 2021/22 campaign as his young charges sit top of the Professional Development League table.

The Owls have lost just one game in seven this season and undefeated in five heading into the cup clash.

After a run of six straight defeats, Burton have picked up of late with three successive wins in the Youth Alliance over Port Vale (0-2), Scunthorpe (5-3) and Doncaster (1-5).

Match Reports

18s advance in the FA Youth Cup

6 November 2021

The Owls Under-18s booked their place in the second round of the FA Youth Cup with a comprehensive 3-0 win over Burton Albion.

A Ben Radcliffe own goal and a brace from Leojo Davidson earned Wednesday a deserved victory at the Pirelli Stadium, though Andy Holdsworth’s side finished the game with ten men following the late dismissal of Rio Shipston.

Wednesday were lively from the off and went ahead in fortuitous circumstances in the fifth minute when Filimon Asfha’s cross was turned into the net by Brewers defender Radcliffe.

Davidson struck his first of the night from the penalty spot ten minutes before the break.

Shipston was fouled in the box and dangerman Davidson was cool from the spot, slotting straight down the middle to double our advantage.


The hosts rallied after the break and Wednesday survived a big penalty shout 18 minutes from time when Jakub Niemczyk was bundled over in the box but the decision went in favour of the visitors and play continued with Wednesday two goals to the good.

The Owls were reduced to ten men eight minutes from time when Shipston saw a straight red for a strong challenge in the middle of the park on Joseph Nyahwema that was deemed reckless.

But Wednesday re-grouped and put the game well and truly to bed on 86 minutes when Davidson fired into the bottom corner first time from Joey Phuthi’s assist.


Ows: Hall, Fusire, Ashman, Flannery, Sesay, Kilheeney, Shipston, Asfha (Phuthi 65), Davidson (Maltby 87), Al-Jahadhmy (Yogane 77), Cadamarteri
