Date set for FA Youth Cup tie against Leicester

By SFC Media time Thu 29 Jan U 18

Southampton’s FA Youth Cup Fifth Round tie against Leicester City will take place at St Mary’s on Thursday 5th February.

The tie against the Foxes will kick-off at 7pm GMT and replaces the Under-21 Premier League Cup game that was due to be played that night.

The game between Martin Hunter’s Under-21s and Watford, in the quarter-final of the competition, will now be re-arranged for another evening, with a date to be confirmed shortly.

Saints reached the fifth round of the FA Youth Cup with a win against West Ham United at St Mary’s and a penalty shootout victory over Everton at Goodison Park.

The winners of the tie will face Liverpool or Birmingham City at home in the quarter-finals of the competition.

Tickets will be priced at £3 for adults and £1 for over-65s and under-17s. Supporters will be able to purchase tickets at the turnstiles on a cash-only basis on the evening of the game.
