FA Youth Cup history is within our Academy’s grasp.

Manager Mike Sandmann’s squad of talented young players take on Langley in the First Round proper at Crabble on Thursday (7.45pm) and should they win, they will become the first team to reach the Second Round for the first time in the 12-year history of the Academy.

The campaign so far has been a story of guts, passion, and hunger to succeed in the four games they have played.

First-team squad member Kieron Agbebi (pictured) and his teammates started their journey with a 9-1 win against Hollands & Blair at Crabble before backing up that performance with wins against Margate (5-0) and Ebbsfleet United (5-1).

They then won 6-2 at Walton & Hersham to secure their place in the First Round.

Admission is £10 and £5 for concessions.

So please come along and support the youngsters – they love having you there.
