Portsmouth Academy discover FA Youth Cup second-round opponents

Pompey Academy will make the trip to Cray Wanderers in the FA Youth Cup later this month.

Cray defeated Worthing 2-1 last night to move into the second round of the competition and set up a tie with the young Blues. 

Mark Kelly’s troops thumped Bristol Rovers 5-2 at Fratton Park last month in a first-round clash.

Pompey reached round three last season before falling to a 2-1 extra-time defeat to Leicester.

The hope is they will at least be able to match that feat this term.

For Cray it’s been a record-breaking run, with the Blues offering a potential huge scalp.
