Cray Wanderers vs VCD Athletic – FA Youth Cup, Preliminary Round – 4/9/19 – 7 pm
Wednesday evening sees the FA Youth Cup adventure begin again as the Cray Wanderers U18s take on VCD Athletic U18s at Hayes Lane. Kick off is 7pm.
This will be a new experience for Lee Amis’s side who have grown as a team under the Cray Wanderers banners since the 2015-16 season when they won the Kent Youth League U13s North title and Kent League Cup double and in 2017-18 the U15s Kent Youth League North title once again. Last season they were contenders once again and it will be a great experience to represent Cray Wanderers at Hayes Lane, under the lights and in the most prestigious knockout Youth competition in the country.
As U13s winning the Kent Youth League North Championship and League Cup Double
This of course a competition that Cray did so well in last season reaching the 2nd Round proper and were one game away from making a trip to eventual winners Liverpool.
VCD Athletic will be tough opponents and are members of the Samba Sports Youth League (formerly the Isthmian Youth League) so will come with credentials. It may well be a different side to the one which the Wands played last season in the 1st Qualifying Round which ended in a 6-0 away win for Cray and will be a competitive game.
Please note the game is played to a finish with no replay so we are guaranteed a winner.
Admission prices for this game are Adults £5; Concessions £2; Under16’s free with paying adult.
