The lowdown on Albion's FA Youth Cup quarter-finalists

25 February 2019

Albion Under-18s will take on Everton in the FA Youth Cup quarter-finals at The Hawthorns, on Tuesday, February 26. Here's all you need to know about the young Baggies that will face the Toffees.

The tireless work of Albion's Academy staff over the past decade has meant that Albion Under-18s boss Mike Scott can field a talented side against Everton - as the Baggies bid to further their most impressive run of recent times in the prestigious youth tournament and reach the last four.

Scott has praised the unity of his side ahead of the tie with the Toffees, and it's hardly surprising they possess such a togetherness - as 14 of the players who could be involved have been at the Club since the age of 12 or younger.

Tickets for the game are available on the gate. It's a 7pm kick-off.
