BUXTON’S young charges will bid to reach the Second Qualifying Round of the FA Youth Cup tonight (Monday) when they make the trip to Arnold Town (kick-off 7.45pm).
In the previous round, the young Bucks beat Ibstock United 2-1 at the Silverlands in their first ever match in the competition.
Victory over Arnold Town could bring Buxton the prize of a home tie against rivals Matlock Town in the next round. The Gladiators travel to St Andrews on Wednesday evening.
Also in the FA Youth Cup First Qualifying Round on Wednesday, New Mills AFC’s new-look youth team welcome Holwell Sports to Church Lane (kick-off 7.45pm).
The winner of this tie will host either Ilkeston or Hinckley United in the Second Qualifying Round.
Admission to the FA Youth Cup fixture at Church Lane will be £4 for adults and £2 for concessions.
