FA Youth Cup draws: Longlevens at home in first ever tie & Slimbridge to host Gloucester City


The FA Youth Cup early rounds have served up one guaranteed, but as many as three all-Gloucestershire ties, whilst given Longlevens a chance to make history at home.

For the first time in their history, Longlevens will have an U18s side in the competition and after receiving a bye into the Preliminary Round, they have been drawn at home to Hallen in a tough tie.

Elsewhere, Slimbridge will host Gloucester City in the same round.

If Shortwood United can get past Mangotsfield United in their Extra Preliminary Round tie, then they will head to Hartpury University during the first week of September.

The other potential all-Gloucestershire tie could see Cinderford Town head to Cheltenham Saracens, should Sarries get past Thornbury Town.

Only four local sides are in the Extra Preliminary Round, with Fairford Town heading to Hengrove Athletic and Bishops Cleeve hosting Odd Down in the other two ties.

Tuffley Rovers join the competition in the Preliminary Round and will head to Radstock Town, whilst Lydney also make their bow in that round and will head to the winner of Bristol Manor Farm vs Yate Town.
