City’s Under 18s were put through their paces on Monday evening as Gareth Taylor’s squad wrapped up preparations for Tuesday night’s Under 18 Premier League Cup final with Stoke.

The City youngsters will be seeking to defend the trophy that we won 12 months ago and will enjoy home advantage with the showpiece final being staged at the Academy Stadium, kick-off 7.45pm.

And despite the worst of the Manchester weather, as our video shows, the players were in great spirits as they seek to lift the first piece of silverware this season.

Tickets are still available for the final HERE.

City’s Under 18 Premier League Cup final against Stoke will be also available to watch live on our City+ channel.

Fans can sign up to a 30-day free trial, after which CITY+ is just £1.99GBP / month. For more information, visit
