Both age groups won their opening fixtures last weekend and now both return to action against teams who also started with a win. The Under-17s face Crewe at Spurs Lodge while the Under-19s face a long trip to Huddersfield.
Coach Michael Stone is expecting a tricky weekend. "Crewe have always been well-known for their youth set-ups and both them and Huddersfield won their first games," he said. "It will be difficult for us but we were delighted with how we started."
It was a perfect start last Saturday. The Under-17s completed a superb 2-1 success at Leeds United thanks to goals from John Sutton after 38 minutes and the winner from David Galbraith with 15 minutes left.
Meanwhile the Under-19s, managed by Pat Holland (pictured right), toppled Blackburn Rovers at Spurs Lodge with strikes from Clayton Fortune and Maurizio Consorti.
Stone added: "They were both very strong opposition to start the season off against and we completed two very good wins. The Under-17 result was particularly pleasing because their pre-season programme was badly affected by injuries. We were delighted."
Line-ups from last week: U17s v Leeds: Rutherford, Gardiner, Thomas, Marney, Henry, O'Donoghue, Lee, Hughes, Sutton, Barnard, Galbraith, McKie. Subs: Barnett, Dhall, Slabber.
U19s v Blackburn: Attwell, Saker, Fortune, Kelly, Lacy, Burke, Partin, Consorti, Jackson, Snee, Kamanan. Subs: Quilter, Brennan.
Our youngsters will be looking to build on their magnificent starts in the FA Premier Academy League on Saturday.
