Youngsters March On

Tuesday 7 December 2004

Fulham's Under 18s beat Birmingham City 2-1 last night in the Third Round of the FA Youth Cup. In an exciting game under the floodlights at Craven Cottage, it was promising talent Ismael Ehui who netted both of Fulham's goals. The Whites's side was predominantly composed of Under 18s although a handful of Under 15s and Under 16s also made the squad. Speaking after the game, Fulham Academy Manager John Murtough said, "it was a great team performance. All of the players showed great maturity."

The draw for the Fourth Round has now been made and Fulham will face either Wigan Athletic or Leeds United. The games will be played before 22nd January.
