Rovers have been paired with Tranmere Rovers in the first round of this season's FA Youth Cup.

The match will be played at Tranmere's Prenton Park on Wednesday November 1st, kick-off 7pm. 

Admission will be by payment of cash at the turnstiles open in the main stand, and ticket prices are as follows:

  • Adults - £4.00
  • Concessions (Over 65s & Under 18s) - £1.00

While this will be the Blues' first game in the competition in 2017-18, Tranmere have come through qualifying matches at Nantwich and Spennymoor Town respectively, winning 1-0 on both occasions, to reach the first round stage.

Rovers reached the semi-finals in 2015-16 and were knocked out at the fourth-round stage last season, while Tranmere were eliminated in the third round.
