FA Youth Cup: Fourth round date at Crystal Palace confirmed


Villa face Crystal Palace in the fourth round of the FA Youth Cup at Selhurst Park.

The match will take place on Saturday January 9, kick-off is 12noon.

Ben Petty will be in charge of the claret and blue side, which could feature the likes of Harry McKirdy, Rushian Hepburn-Murphy [pictured], Easah Suliman and Andre Green, who have all impressed at U18 and U21 level this season.

A late goal from Hepburn-Murphy sealed progression in the last round over Everton at Goodison Park.

We boast a good record in the competition, having reached the final in 2010 and the semi-final in 2011.

As well as winning it in 2002, we were also runners-up in 2004.
