Ipswich Town’s Under 18s will travel to Middlesbrough in the FA Youth Cup Fifth Round this Saturday 10th April (kick-off 12pm).
The Blues saw off Swindon Town in Round 4 at Portman Road last month (report here: https://www.itfc-academy.com/2021/03/30/u18-town-win-again-in-fa-youth-cup/), having already beaten Southend United (home), Chelmsford City (away) and Fulham (home) in this year’s competition. Boro’s run to this stage, which began in the Third Round, has seen them defeat Millwall (home) and Swansea (away). The winner of Saturday lunchtime’s game will host either Sheffield United or Bristol City in the quarter-finals.
Please note that, due to Saturday’s Cup fixture, ITFC’s Under 18s are no longer playing away to Sheffield United this weekend as originally scheduled. The rearranged date for the trip to Yorkshire to take on the Blades is Wednesday 28th April (1pm kick-off).
