Murphy: Biggest Game For Youth Players

Under-18s Set For Fourth Round FA Youth Cup Tie

16 January 2018

John Murphy says Blackpool’s fourth round FA Youth Cup clash against Southampton tonight will be the biggest game of the players’ lives.

The under-18s have been on a fantastic run in the competition, having knocked out Bradford City, Doncaster Rovers and West Ham United, yet the ultimate test now awaits. 

“Southampton is going to be a really, really tough game. The Southampton academy has been well documented over the years because of the players they’ve brought through, and they also beat Wolves 4-1 in the last round,” Murphy said.

“The West Ham game was the biggest of the season, and now this one is. It’s a platform and opportunity for the players to show what they’re capable of. It’s the biggest game of their lives.”

The tie, which takes place at Bloomfield Road, kicks-off at 7pm and admission is priced as follows:

-          £3 for Adults
-          £1 for Concessions

Season ticket holders can attend for free on production of their season ticket card. Turnstiles 7 and 8 will be open in the West Stand from 6pm.
