Yeovil Town's Under 18s side travel to play Swindon Town in the Fourth Round of the FA Youth Cup tomorrow night in a match that takes place at the County Ground on Swindon's main pitch with the action kicking off at 7.00pm. The Glovers are looking to go further than any previous Yeovil Town side in the competition, having already equalled their previous best performance. A home match against Burnley awaits the winners and manager Stuart Housley has told BBC Somerset Sound that he would be extremely happy if it was his side taking to the field in the next round of the competition:
"It would be nice. We've progressed to the Fourth Round for the second time in our history. We're looking forward to the game. It's going to be a tough game. I watched Swindon play Queen's Park Rangers in the last round. They looked very quick and they are obviously a good side. It's going to be a very very tough game for us but hopefully if we can reproduce the form that we showed against Brentford and Ipswich in the last couple of rounds then we'll have a chance."
The last time the Glovers reached the Fourth Round of the competition, they beat Brentford, Luton Town and also this year's Fourth Round opponents, Swindon Town, before coming unstuck against Everton at Huish Park. The win over Swindon was in the First Round, with goals from Dale Williams and Andy Holmes sending the Glovers through and Stuart remembers that even that was a major shock at the time:
"We played them a couple of years ago and we actually beat them. They beat us 8-0 in the league but then we went up there and beat them 2-0. So it's a lucky ground! I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the boys are up for it and that we produce what we did against Ipswich."
If anyone is going to tomorrow night's match and doesn't mind someone from Ciderspace giving them a call on a mobile a few times during the game, then drop an email to email@example.com with some contact details and we'll do the rest.
