4 November 2019

Following two postponements, the Iron's Under-18 side make a long-awaited return to action when they visit Notts County in the FA Youth Cup first round on Tuesday night (7pm kick-off).

The game will be played at Meadow Lane, and is pay on the gate only, with admission costing £3 adults and £1 for over-65s and under-18s.

A home clash against Morpeth Town in the second round awaits the victors.

We will have live text coverage from the game via our Academy Twitter feed, which can be accessed by clicking here, while we will also have a match report, gallery and reaction online following the game.

SCENE-SETTER

As touched on, this will be the Under-18 side's first game since October 19th, when they were 2-1 victors at Mansfield Town through goals from Joey Dawson and Finley Shrimpton.

Their last two scheduled matches, away at Walsall and at home to Bradford City, have been postponed due to the weather.

Tom Collins, Harry Jessop, Cameron Wilson, Fin Shrimpton and Charlie Barks all played varying minutes last week after being selected for Russ Wilcox's Under-23s squad as they faced Walsall Reserves.

LAST LINE-UP: Chapman, Baker, Lobley, D Gallimore, Barks, Kemp, Shrimpton, Dawson, L Gallimore, Jessop, Silva.

IRON SUBS NOT USED: Chadli, Virgo, Wilkinson, Wilson.

Notts County defeated Basford United 5-0 in the fourth qualifying round to progress to face the Iron.
