Details have been finalised for Salford City’s FA Youth Cup First Round Proper visit to Wrexham.

Date: Tuesday 31st October 2017
Kick-off: 19:00
Venue: Racecourse Ground, Mold Road, Wrexham, Wales, LL11 2AH
Admission Prices:  Adults £3, Children £1

Unfortunately Wrexham are only able to stage the tie on the evening that the first team travel to Boston United for a re-arranged Vanarama National League North fixture. If you can’t make that game why not nip down to North Wales to cheer them on in what is an historic FA Youth Cup tie for the club?

road to the first round

Qualification was confirmed with a 1-0 win at York City, Mani Ogunrinde scoring the winner shortly before half time. In the Second Qualifying Round, The Ammies beat Warrington Town 2-1 having won 4-1 at Daisy Hill in the First Qualifying Round, and 1-0 against Mossley in the Preliminary Round.

Wrexham only entered the FA Youth Cup in the Third Qualifying Round, where they came from behind to win 3-2 away at Gateshead.

The full FA Youth Cup First Round draw can be found on the FA website.
