FA Youth Cup: Swansea

Tuesday 9 January 2018 13:50

The Under-18s FA Youth Cup Fourth Round fixture has been announced and the Young Whites will travel to Swansea City on 17th January in a 7pm kick off.

Fulham beat Huddersfield Town in mid-December to progress to the Fourth Round of the prestigious tournament.

The draw was made before the Third Round so Fulham knew that either Swansea or Chesterfield FC would be waiting if they were able to return from Yorkshire with a win.

The Welsh side beat Chesterfield 2-0 at home to get to this stage with goals from Oli Cooper and Shaq Wynter-Coles.

Fulham have played the Swans twice already this year in the league, with one draw and a loss for the Young Whites.

Back in August a late Cameron Thompson strike earned Fulham a point in South Wales, and in their last fixture before the winter break Nicolas Santos-Clase scored a consolation penalty at Motspur Park after Swansea scored in both halves.

If the tie is level extra time will be played, followed by penalties.
