FA Youth Cup action at Hillsborough

12 December 2018

The Sheffield Wednesday Under-18s turn their attention to the FA Youth Cup on Thursday.

Following a barnstorming first half of the season for Andy Holdsworth side, the Owls youngsters will be aiming to take their league form into the prestigious youth tournament.

It’s a clash with Stoke in round three at Hillsborough and supporters are encouraged to come and support the boys.

Admission is £3 Adults and £1 Concessions.

Under-18 boss Andy Holdsworth said: “The lads are looking forward to the Youth Cup game.

“They are looking forward to this for many reasons, one you are playing at the main stadium and two we’ve been drawn at home under the lights at Hillsborough.

“It will be a great experience, it’s a knockout competition and I maybe think we don’t get enough of these tournaments at this level.

“It’s a one-off game, sink or swim and we’ll find out more about our boys come the end.

“We’ve made a great start in the league and confidence is high but we know it will be tough against Category One Stoke. Hopefully there will be some good support for the lads, like we get on Saturday mornings at Middlewood Road.”
