FA Youth game scheduled

Blues will host Barkingside in the FA Youth Cup first qualifying round on Wednesday September 19, kick-off 7.45pm.

The east London side won 5-1 at Hertford Town on Friday to set up the trip to the ProKit UK Stadium.

Blues will be looking to repeat last season’s success in the competition when they won four away ties to reach the first round proper where they defeated Boreham Wood 2-1 before bowing out at Colchester United.

Blues’ development team’s home game against Witham Town, which was scheduled for September 19, has been moved back a week to September 26 and will form part of a double-header at the ProKit that day as our academy side open their home campaign at lunchtime by hosting Boreham Wood Whites at lunchtime.
