Ipswich Town Under 18s (sponsored by Britton Group) are through to the Quarter Finals of this season’s FA Youth Cup, following a 1-0 away win at Middlesbrough on Saturday (10th April 2021).
Adem Atay took his side to the north-east for this fixture, which was played at Heritage Park in Bishop Auckland, following a 3-1 win over Swindon Town in the previous round. In a closely-fought encounter, an 84th minute strike from the Blues’ Albie Armin (pictured, who also also struck against Swindon) was enough to settle the tie in Town’s favour.
Next up is a Quarter Final home fixture against either Sheffield United or Bristol City, who face off this coming Saturday (17th April) for the right to travel to Portman Road. The Quarter Final will take place on a yet-to-be-confirmed date, no later than Saturday 1st May.
