CTFC Youth Maintain FA Cup Progress

"Youth squad?" I hear you ask....

Yes, as well as our First XI, Reserves, U21s and Ladies teams we also have a Youth team who, down to their recent exploits in the FA Youth Cup, have forced me to write a short column on them sooner than I had planned.

They are through to the 2nd Qualifying Round of the tournament following two thrilling, goal-laden victories away from home.

In the Preliminary Round they were pitted against AFC Liverpool in a tricky-looking away tie but ran out 6-5 winners.

This then handed them a trip to Warrington Town. Taking the lead shortly before half-time thanks to Ewan Roach, they were then pegged back shortly after the restart before Cartwright restored Cheadle's lead.

Warrington then forced the match into extra-time with only five minutes remaining before Hunt gave Cheadle the advantage once more in extra-time, with Roach sealing the deal with three minutes of extra-time remaining.

Happy times for the Youth squad at the moment!

Chester's Youth Academy await them in the 2nd Qualifying Round in the week commencing 5th October, with Chester hammering Chadderton's Youth 9-1 to get there.

Of course we will let you know how they got on via the website and on Twitter. Eyes peeled!
