FA YOUTH CUP: Round one match details

United face the Latics

25 October 2021

Carlisle United will face fellow Youth Alliance North-West Division side Oldham Athletic in the first round of this season's FA Cup.

The tie will take place under the floodlights at Brunton Park and will kick off at 7pm on Tuesday 26 October.

Tickets will be available from 6pm on the night from the west side ticket office.

Prices are £3 for over-18s and £1 for under-18s. 

The sides have yet to meet in league action, but both are proving to be hard to beat as their respective campaigns motor steadily on.

Youth boss Mark Birch said: "It's one for our players to look forward to. It's played on the main pitch, in front of fans, and with it being the FA Cup it's just like the senior competition, it has an edge to it.

"We want to progress but Oldham are a good side and they'll be thinking the same. It is a good occasion for both clubs and it comes down to who handles it better on the night."

We'll have more from Mark Birch ahead of the game.
