Crystal Palace U21s Join Pompey's Papa John's Trophy Group

Blues will also face AFC Wimbledon and Sutton

24 June 2021

Papa Johns Trophy

Pompey will play Crystal Palace U21s in the group stages of the 2021/22 Papa John's Trophy.

The Premier League side's youngsters were drawn into Southern Group B, which already contained the Blues, AFC Wimbledon and EFL newcomers Sutton.

Pompey will take on the Eagles and one of the other clubs at Fratton Park, while also having one away fixture as they battle for a place in the knock-out stages.

Kenny Jackett guided the Blues to EFL Trophy glory with a memorable penalty shoot-out victory over Sunderland in 2019, but the Blues were defeated by Salford in the delayed 2020 showpiece.
