WIGAN ATHLETIC v SOUTHAMPTON
FA YOUTH CUP 4th ROUND
WEDNESDAY 11th JANUARY
KICK OFF 7.00pm
Latics Under 18s will look to emulate the club’s achievements in last season’s FA Youth Cup when they take on Southampton at the DW Stadium next Wednesday, January 11th.
The match will kick off at 7.00pm, with adult tickets priced at £5 and concessions £3.00.
Latics are looking to repeat last season’s feat of reaching the 5th Round for the first time in the competition, where they beat Derby County in the 4th Round, eventually falling to Manchester City after extra time.
They beat Exeter City in the 3rd Round, courtesy of a 118th minute extra-time goal by Wigan-born debutant James Berry at St James’ Park. Come and watch the next chapter of our FA Youth Cup story.
Gregor Rioch, Head of the Wigan Athletic Academy, said: “The lads have earned their chance to play at the DW Stadium against one of the top academies in the country and I hope the Wigan fans will come out and cheer on the future generation of our club.”
