Clevedon Town Under-18s are all set to face their Manchester City counterparts in the FA Youth Cup tie at The Everyone Active Stadium next week.
Clevedon Town Under-18s are continuing their excellent form into this season. Winners of the Somerset Floodlight Youth League Premier Division title last season, they also retained the Roger Stone Memorial Cup which they had won the previous season and have won all four league games they have played so far this season.
Reaching the first round proper of the FA Youth Cup last season they have done even better this season by reaching the third round, where they will be entertaining Manchester City at The Everyone Active Stadium on December 19 with a 7pm kick-off.
Under the guidance of Alex White and Ash Nevins, this young group of players have defeated Bath City, Bridgwater Town and Brockenhurst in the qualifying rounds by a combined score of 12-1, before travelling to Aldershot Town in the first round where they prevailed by four goals to one with their strike-force of Ethan Feltham (2), Ryan Jones and Jack Sell on target.
They were then drawn at home to Sutton United in the second round and despite losing the game 2-1 after extra time, they were re-instated in the competition when Sutton were thrown out for fielding an illegible player.
Already having progressed further than any previous Clevedon Town team in the FA Youth Cup, people are invited to come along to The Everyone Active Stadium to see if they can continue their journey.
Tickets are available via the Clevedon Town website www.pitchero.com/clubs/clevedontown at a cost of £5 for adults, £3 for concessions and £2 for under-16s. With a large crowd expected, more than 600 tickets have been sold already and an early 7pm kick-off people are advised to arrive early.
