FA Youth Cup - 2020/21

Recommended Posts

Winslow Boy - Yes, you're right, things are changing by the minute and there's the weather to take into account too with Saturday's SSML Division One fixture at Elmfields Gate being called off, I guess if it's played the pitch could be a leveller with Charlton's 'mollycoddled' youngsters used to playing on billiard tables:

Update !!!!! FA Youth Cup game to be played Wednesday 4th November.. moved from 5th. Winslow United look forward to welcoming Charlton Athletic U18’s to Elmfields Gate. Covid processes must be followed with a number of Stewards on duty to ensure social distancing rules are applied.

Yes, the pitch will not be what they are used to, though it’s in decent nick I hear. A lot of rain could change that and it of course if it’s wet it will cut up. Still I don’t think even if the pitch is a quagmire that would be enough of a leveller. Charlton lads are full time professionals, they’ve been in academy’s for a long time, they should be respected as such.

Nice coverage from Sports Shots, hopefully one of their excellent photographers will be at Elmfields Gate this evening. Also can you imagine if the youngsters emulate Broxbourne Borough and reach the Fifth Round of the competition if they are already being featured on the BBC:

Lets get ready to rumble. The Winslow United youngsters seem so down to earth, mature and level headed don't they, not molly coddled or spoon fed at all as no doubt the Charlton Athletic lads are:

I’d say that’s pretty good. Can’t help but feel the second half will be tougher, as I said before anything 6 and under would be more than respectable.

5-0. Absolutely no disgrace in that. See teams at our level beating each other by more on a regular basis.

Winslow Boy - Yes, I guess you're right, it was a great run anyway especially the wins over Baldock Town and Hitchin Town:

They’ve done themselves and everyone proud and perhaps a couple of them will get a chance to go on.

A valiant effort! 👏👏👏👏

Daily Dose, no pun intended I take it. Incidentally, I see that at present FA Youth Cup ties involving non-elite Club's cannot be played during lockdown so it's just as well Winslow United brought the Charlton Athletic tie forward to Wednesday otherwise they would have been left in limbo until after 2 December although I suppose they would have still been in the competition:

Tie was brought forward at Chartons request for this reason. Made perfect sense.

Really, did Charlton say why they wanted to bring the tie forward to Wednesday

They asked either Tuesday or Wednesday. I would imagine it was due to the impending lockdown. Their team featured two lads who have played for the first team.

I see that Charlton Athletic went on to beat Gillingham in the Second Round of the Competition but only 9-8 on penalties following a 1-1 draw after extra time, the game was played at Chatham Town's Bauvill Stadium so even if Winslow United had got through they wouldn't have trod the hallowed Priestfield Stadium turf. There's nothing worse is there than a small Club getting through and drawing the likes of Arsenal or Tottenham away only to find that they are playing at Boreham Wood or Stevenage. Charlton will now entertain Sheffield United in the Third Round:

I wonder whether Winslow United can emulate FC Broxbourne Borough from the 2016/17 campaign:

Wednesday 7 December 16
3rd Round
F.C. Broxbourne Borough 1 (Jack Hockney 118), Chester 0 (aet)
Attendance 454
F.C. Broxbourne Borough - Brandon Walsh, James Kelley(c), Christian Anuyagu, Issa Farouk (Yacine Reynolds 75), Joe Patrick, Lewis Dickenson, Frank Chandler (Jay Batchelor 65), George Quarrington-Carter, Garvey Tulloch-Jordan, Richard Oluwatoyin (Jack Hockney 80), Ali Bangura, Unused - Hardeep Singh (GK), Jack Price

I don't actually recall the crowd disturbances at Goffs Lane for the above tie, it sounded quite unsavoury:

Broxbourne Borough join Chester FC in condemning scenes which marred FA Youth Cup tie - Cheshire Live (cheshire-live.co.uk)
