Palace's first FA Youth Cup clash announced

19 November 2019

Crystal Palace Under-18s have been drawn against Reading in their first clash of the annual FA Youth Cup, with the fixture set for Thursday, 12th December at Madejski Stadium with a 7pm GMT kick-off.

The competition's Third Round proper - where Premier League and Championship teams enter the fray - kick-starts Palace's campaign in the competition they famously won in 1977 and '78.

Back then, with Kenny Sansom, Terry Fenwick, Jerry Murphy and Peter Nicholas amongst their ranks, Palace's highly anticipated 'Team of the Eighties' overcame Everton and Aston Villa respectively to win the coveted youth trophy in consecutive years.

This season, fans can support the lads and see how Palace's next generation fare against U18 Premier League side Reading by heading to Madejski Stadium for just £3 (concession tickets are only £1). Tickets will be available to buy on the day of the game and parking will be free and unreserved for all fans.
