FA Youth Cup: First Round Details

3 November 2020

Argyle’s under-18 side will begin their FA Youth Cup campaign with a Devon derby against Exeter City at Home Park on Wednesday night.

The fixture, which kicks-off at 7pm, will be available to stream live, free of charge, on iFollow Argyle, with four-camera coverage and commentary also included.

The young Greens, who will be managed on the night by Darren Way, have history with their Devon rivals in this competition, with City narrowly winning out in horrendous conditions in round one last season.

Much has changed since then, though, with the club adopting a holistic approach to Academy development under the guidance of Director of Football Neil Dewsnip.

In 2017-2018, an Argyle under-18 side containing current senior professionals Mike Cooper, Ryan Law, Klaidi Lolos and Luke Jephcott made a storming run to the fifth round of the competition, upsetting Premier League giants Manchester City on the way, before falling to Fulham after extra time at Home Park.
