AFC Sudbury U18s to play plum FA Youth Cup tie at Bristol Rovers on November 5 as club announce Bury Town Velocity Trophy game for same night has been postponed
AFC Sudbury have announced their FA Youth Cup tie at Bristol Rovers' Memorial Ground, coming as a reward for beating Bowers & Pitsea this week, will take place next Tuesday (November 5, 7pm).
As a result the club have also said that they have reached an agreement with local rivals Bury Town to postpone their scheduled Isthmian League Velocity Trophy Group 1 match, due to a contingent of Danny Laws' Under-18s side being first-team regulars.
Both club's penultimate group match in the competition, with Sudbury currently second-from-bottom and unable to qualify and Bury presently top, has been re-scheduled for the following Tuesday; November 12 (7.45pm).
On the club's website it said: "AFC Sudbury would like to thank Ben Chenery, Bury Town manager for helping us move this fixture to allow volunteers and supporters to take in both matches."
The kick-off time for the FA Youth Cup game in Bristol has been set as 7pm with Sudbury running a coach that supporters may book on to leaving at 12noon on the day from the club and travelling back on the same night.
Anyone wishing to book a seat, for £15, is advised to contact Darren Theobald or Joe Grimwood asap in the club office on 01787 376213 or firstname.lastname@example.org or 07872 969230.
