Norfolk U18’s will be looking to continue their run in this year’s FA County Youth Cup on Sunday as they are still looking to be the first team ever to win the competition in successive years.
Norfolk reached the Quarter-final stage by beating Cornwall in the second round for which a match report can be found here. Then beating the Isle of Man in the third round thanks to goals from Emre Upston and James Bemrose. A full match report for the game against the Isle of Man can be found here.
Sussex reached this round of the competition after brushing aside Northamptonshire in their third round match, scoring 5 in the process. Norfolk and Sussex have not met in the competition in recent years however recent results would indicate that the southern outfit will be a tough test.
