Academy to Face Forest Green Rovers at the GFA This Friday

16 January 2018

The U18's EFL Youth Alliance fixture has been switched to take place at the GFA on Friday evening.

The fixture, which was originally scheduled to take place on Saturday, will now kick-off at 8pm at the GFA (Oaklands Park Stadium, Gloucester Rd, Almondsbury, Bristol BS32 4AG) on Friday, 19th January.

Lead Professional Development Phase Coach, Tom Parrinello is hoping for an exciting encounter.

"We have obviously played Forest Green in the FA Youth Cup at the Mem earlier this season, which was a close game that had to be settled by a penalty shoot-out."

"There has been a mini-break in the schedule for the U18's and they looking forward to getting back out on to the pitch after a great deal of work on the training ground over past few weeks."

"With the game now taking place on a Friday evening, it gives fans the opportunity to come and watch the next generation of players in action."

Admission to Friday's game is free to supporters.
