Academy To Face Cleethorpes Town Away

Dave Currie’s Young Lions side will travel to Cleethorpes Town on Wednesday 4th September in the FA Youth Cup.

The preliminary round tie will kick-off at 7:45pm at The Linden Club, a place familiar to The Lions who travelled there last season.

Tickets are priced at just £3 adults, £2 concessions and £1 U16’s.

The two sides clashed in the Emirates FA Cup third qualifying round on 7th October 2018, the tie finished 2-2 after two late goals from Cleethorpes.

Kayode Odejayi’s header fifteen minutes from time at Nethermoor in the replay saw off The Owls and sparked a memorable run in the competition.

The academy have faced Football League sides Blackpool, Bury, Grimsby and Fleetwood Town previously in the FA Youth Cup.
