Albion learn FA Youth Cup opponents

ALBION's under-18 side have been drawn against either Leyton Orient or Sholing at home in the FA Youth Cup Third Round.

With clubs from the Premier League and Championship joining the competition in this round, a total of 32 ties will take place at the next stage. 

But the full draw is yet to take shape with Sholing - the lowest ranked team left in the hat - due to face Orient next week.

Jamie Smith's side were eliminated at this stage of the tournament last season, where a goal from then-Glovers frontman Callum Morton saw Yeovil Town secure a 3-2 win at The Hawthorns.

But 2017/18 brings a new opporunity for Albion's youngsters to stake their claim for silverware in a season which has already seen them beat table-topping Manchester United 4-2 in the U18 Premier League.

The tie will be played on Saturday, December 16.
