It’s been a fantastic season for our Academy side, culminating in an FA Youth Cup Final showdown with Liverpool on Thursday 25th April.
The showpiece takes place at our very own Academy Stadium with the game due to start at 7:45pm - you can get your tickets via this link.
Derby County offered a stern test in the Last 16 but the young Blues, down to ten men, mounted a brilliant second-half comeback to snatch a 2-1 win at Pride Park, ending the host’s nine-game winning streak in the process.
Two goals in each half of the quarter-final saw us progress at the expense of Bournemouth, winning 4-1 for the second time in the competition this season.
But we saved perhaps our best display of the tournament so far for the semi-final, overcoming West Brom 4-2 courtesy of a Ben Knight brace plus further strikes from Tommy Doyle and Felix Nmecha.
This sets up an exciting climax to our Youth Cup title tilt at the Academy Stadium against high-flying Liverpool.
As we reach the home stretch of the campaign, cast your eye over all the action on our road to the final…
