REDS DRAWN AGAINST PALACE IN FA YOUTH CUP

23 November 2021

Our U18s will host Crystal Palace in the FA Youth Cup third round.

It is the first time we have been drawn at home in this competition since the 2016/17 campaign.

The young Reds, flying in the Professional Development League, welcome the Eagles to Oakwell on Wednesday 8 December in a 7pm kick-off.

Palace are currently sixth in the U18 Premier League after a fine start to the season, and England youth forward Victor Akinwale leads their scoring charts with 11 goals in all competitions so far - including late equaliser against Fulham at the weekend.

Last season, Barnsley exited this competition at the hands of Chelsea, while the Eagles were beaten by lower-league Fleetwood Town, both at the third round stage.

Details on how to access tickets and live streaming will be announced in due course.
