Youths Ready For Hoops

The FA Youth Cup resumes on Thursday and Everton are in the capital again for their fourth round tie with Queens Park Rangers.

The young Toffees got through a tricky clash with fellow Londoners Crystal Palace after Anton Forrester's extra-time effort completed a 2-1 scoreline.

In turn, QPR beat Huddersfield Town 2-1 in their third round tie at home.

With the Premier Academy League divided by regions, encounters between the clubs are rare. However, the Everton defence will be aware of the likes of Bruno Andrade, a midfielder that has broken into the QPR first team on occassion.

Coming off the back of a 2-2 draw with Stoke City at Finch Farm, Kevin Sheedy's men will be looking to progress to the next round, where yet another away tie awaits. The victors of this match will travel to either Newcastle or Watford as a result of Friday's fifth round draw.

Everton have a proud history in the FA Youth Cup, winning the competition three times and appearing in four other finals.

Tickets for Thursday night's game at Loftus Road are available on general sale.
