Pompey Academy have set a date for their FA Youth Cup first-round tie against Bristol Rovers. 

Mark Kelly’s young Blues will host the Pirates on Wednesday, October 24 at Fratton Park (7pm kick-off). 

Tickets will be available to buy on the evening of the game from the Anson Road ticket office or from the booth next to the club shop.

Only the Fratton End will be open.

Pompey reached the third round of the competition last season.

Following victories over Gillingham and Lewes, the Blues fell to a 2-1 extra-time defeat to Leicester.
