Dereham Town U18s v Posh U18s: Match Preview

5 November 2015

The Peterborough United youth team head to Dereham Town in the first round of the FA Youth Cup on Thursday evening.

Peterborough United travel to Dereham Town in the first round of the FA Youth Cup tonight (7.45pm) and manager Kieran Scarff has a fully fit squad to choose from ahead of the tie.

The fixture, which takes place at Aldiss Park, will cost £4 for adults, £2 for concessions and £1 for under 16s.

Boss Scarff said: 'We are looking forward to the game. It is always a big competition for the players, it is a national competition and one that we want to do well in. It is a good opportunity for us to test ourselves against different opposition and I am sure it will be a good evening.

'Playing stadium football is key to their development, it is an opportunity to play under the lights and to play under a bit of pressure is also very important and it is how they deal with that.

'Dereham are a good side, we have a good relationship with them, we know their staff reasonably well and they will provide a decent test because they are working hard to develop their own players. They train every day because they are linked with a college scheme so make no mistake, this is a good football club we are facing,' Scarff said.
