Our Under-19 team is preparing for the challenge of Inter Milan in the NextGen Series on Wednesday.

The Italian giants provide the opposition in our second match of the all-new European competition at Leyton Orient's Matchroom Stadium, kick-off 2pm.

Tickets are available on the day priced just £5 Adults/£1 Under-18s.

The lads came from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 in their group opener at FC Basel. Inter and PSV, the fourth team in our group, have yet to play.

It's the inaugural year of the NextGen Series.

Sanctioned by UEFA and the FA, the tournament has been established to assist young players in making the transition from youth football to senior level.

"It's a really positive initiative," said Tim Sherwood, our Technical Co-Ordinator. "The players will gain a lot of experience up against top-class European opposition."

There are four groups of four teams from all across Europe including the likes of Barcelona, Celtic, Liverpool and Sporting and we take on FC Basel, Inter and PSV home and away in the group stages.
