Fisher’s u18 team start their cup campaign by visiting Imperial Fields this evening (Wednesday 5th September) to take on the hipsters favourite (and our old landlords) Dulwich Hamlet and their u18 squad in the FA Youth Cup in what looks like being a lively south London derby game – the pride of Southwark at stake.
This season’s Youth Cup sees a total of 521 clubs involved, with the competition kicking-off with the preliminary round which will take place from Monday 3 September
Winning clubs from that round will then progress to the first round qualifying stage, which takes place two weeks later from Monday 17 September.
These lads are the future – in every sense of the word, so get down to Imperial Fields and support the next generation.
