The Young Blues are potentially just 90 minutes away from a national cup final – as they host Luton Town Cedars at the 1885 Arena this evening.
Kick off is 7.30pm. Admission is FREE but donations are much appreciated at the gate – with every penny going back into the academy budget to continue the amazing work that they do in producing stars of the future.
It’s already been a fantastic journey for the lads, with five victories – two away and three at home – getting them close to their second final in this competition in three years.
Some Blues fans will still remember that memorable night in 2018 when McIntyre’s team won the competition at Walsall’s Bescot Stadium. A victory over FC Halifax secured the win after a fantastic journey including demolishing Boreham Wood at home in the Semi-Finals.
Make sure you come along and cheer the lads to a national cup final!
THE JOURNEY SO FAR
Their 2019/2020 journey began with a superb away win at Hartlepool United in Round One, with Tom Ruffer and Will Goodwin on the scoresheet.
A home draw in Round Two at home to Gateshead saw a dominating 8-2 victory in which the Heed’s two goals came late on. In this round Ruffer and Goodwin scored five of the goals, the former bagging a hat-trick, and being accompanied by strikes from Burke, Regan Rubin and Jake Hampson.
Round Three brought yet another home draw at the Cheshire – this time against Harrogate Town – which saw another dominating win. Ruffer scored two more, and Burke and Rubin also backed up the last round with further goals in this one. George Woodburn and Tyler Sutton added gloss to the scoreline.
Round Four’s incredible 9-1 win away at Rugby Borough was followed by a visit from another Rugby – this time Rugby Town in the Quarter Finals. At the Cheshire, a 3-0 win with goals from Will Goodwin, Stuart Crilly and Harrison Burke secured their place at this stage. FC Halifax and Eastleigh meet in the other Semi-Final.
