Under-18s to travel to Manchester United in FA Youth Cup

25 November 2021

Scunthorpe United Under-18s will travel to face Manchester United in the third round of the FA Youth Cup on Monday, December 13th (7pm kick-off).

The game will be played at Old Trafford, with admission details to follow in due course. 

Coach travel will also be available for the game, with those details to follow in due course too.

United made it through to Round Three after navigating themselves past two testing opponents. Jack Moore-Billam's early goal was enough for the side to progress past Shrewsbury Town in Round One at Montgomery Waters Meadow, while Harrison Poulter's second-half strike at home to Guiseley saw them progress to the latest stage of the competition in front of 348 spectators at the Sands Venue Stadium.

The Red Devils enter the competition at this round, and are top of the rankings when it comes to winning the competition. They won the first five trophies since its inauguration in 1952, and have since won the FA Youth Cup on another five occasions to take them to a record tally of 10. They haven't been triumphant since 2011, however.
