Young Robins launch Cup campaign with tough test at Chester

Altrincham will make their entrance into this season's FA Youth Cup with a testing tie after learning today that they have been drawn away to Chester in the second qualifying round.

Alty's long-standing rivals earned themselves a home tie with the Robins after scraping through a closely-fought first qualifying round fixture with Vauxhall Motors. The game was all-square at 2-2 after 90 minutes, but Chester's youngsters held their nerve to win the penalty shoot-out 4-1.

The second qualifying round games will be held during the week starting Monday, September 26th and will kick-off at 7pm, unless an alternative time is mutually agreed.

When we have a date for Alty Youth's short trip to Chester, we will bring it to you here on the club's website.
