We can confirm that Chester FC Under 18’s will visit Carlisle United in the First Round Proper of the FA Youth Cup!
The match will take place at Brunton Park on Wednesday 4th November, with kick off at 6pm. This match will be played behind closed doors.
Chester FC’s Media Team will be covering the game however, with match updates on our Twitter page and FREE commentary on Seals Live.
Academy Head Coach Calum McIntyre said: “It’s going to be a huge test for our group. To be drawn away at an established Football League club is an enormous challenge but exactly what this competition is all about.
“It’s a long way to go with strong opposition waiting for us but we will go there with the same belief we always have that we can create another special night in this competition. It’s what we do.”
McIntyre’s side have won four games to advance to this stage. They defeated Abbey Hey 2-0 in the Preliminary Round, before a thumping 11-0 away win at Vauxhall Motors. A 4-0 victory over St Helens Town followed before a 2-1 win at York City last week.
