Academy heading to Devon in first round

Pompey Academy have been handed a trip to Plymouth in the first round of the FA Youth Cup.

It is a repeat of last season’s draw, when the Blues eased to a 4-0 triumph at Home Park.

The tie has to be played in Devon by Saturday, November 7.

Pompey reached the third round last term, also beating Thamesmead before losing 1-0 to Bolton at Fratton Park.

Academy coach Mikey Harris said: "I'm sure you'd get very long odds on us getting exactly the same draw as last season.

"But it should be a great tie for us, as the lads will be able to play on a nice surface at a decent stadium.

"They got one over on us in the league earlier in the season, but hopefully we can go down there and get a result to book our place in the next round."
