FA YOUTH CUP SUSPENDED

12 January 2021

Young Blues' Cup progress put on hold

Full statement from the FA below:

"The FA can confirm its decision to temporarily suspend the 2020/21 FA Youth Cup and has discussed this with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport.

"The health and wellbeing of players and staff are of paramount importance and The FA intends to resume the national competition once the UK Government’s current national COVID-19 lockdown concludes and it is deemed safer for clubs to travel.

"The FA Youth Participation & Development Committee, which is responsible for management of the competition, will continue to review the situation and The FA will provide further updates at the earliest opportunity."

The Young Blues are set to face Swindon at Portman Road in the fourth round.

Adem Atay's U18s reached this stage courtesy of victories over Southend, Chelmsford City and Fulham respectively.
