Solihull Moors’ young charges are gearing up for another special night under the lights in the FA Youth Cup.
Mike Fowler’s side travel to Rugby Town on Wednesday evening (13th October, 7:30pm), knowing a victory would secure their place in the first round of the competition.
Moors were emphatic winners in the second qualifying round, putting five past Evesham United at Damson Park.
Supporters can head along to Rugby’s Butlin Road ground, with entry just £3 for adults and £2 for concessions.
Ahead of the game, Head of Elite Youth Development, Mike Fowler, said: “The FA Youth Cup is a different prospect, the spectacle is huge, and lads sometimes play that game before it happens - they play the evening, the emotion, the event.
“That’s going to be a test again, to see if we can embrace that challenge. The cold night down at Rugby and Butlin Road is a tough place to go.
“We’ll certainly be looking forward to it, see if we can adapt and put our identity on the game.”
Striker Leo Wood further emphasised the need for Moors to play their normal game, he said:
“A cup game is a bit different. It feels more competitive, and we want to put everything into it.
“We’ve just got to take it as any other game and not think about it too much. We need to not play the occasion – we just need to play our normal game and I think we’ll have a good chance of winning.”
