Robins Travel in FA Youth Cup


Altrincham FC U18s enter the FA Youth Cup this season at the 2nd Round Qualifying stage & will travel to Chester during week commencing September 27th.

The teams know each other very well & met as recently as last week in the first game of this season's North West Youth Alliance campaign, when a late goal from Louis Morrison saw the Robins home by the odd goal in three. 

Manager, Paul Fay, said:-

'Chester aren’t to be underestimated despite the league result from the youth team in our opening league game last week. We are a hybrid squad with part-time and full time players so we are still trying to manage getting the full squad together for sessions.

Looking forward to the fixture I expect a very organised Chester squad and this will be a tough challenging game.

We only have to look at the record Chester have had in the FA Youth Cup over the years and in the U19 National Youth Alliance League for the last couple of seasons.

Credit to Calum McIntyre and the coaches over at Chester. We will prepare as much as possible with a game plan and hopefully will enjoy a positive result.'
