The Bees’ Under-18 side kick start their FA Youth Cup campaign tomorrow night when they host Boreham Wood in the Second Round Qualifying.
Last Time Out
Both sides enter tomorrow’s game off the back of victories. The Wood were in BH Cup action on Sunday and finished on the right side of a 3-0 score-line against St Margaretsbury. Goals from Abdel Sahnoun, Bailey Stevenson and Charlie Wickham secured progression to the next round.
Similarly, The Bees are in high spirits after beating Cambridge United 3-1 at the weekend in the EFL Youth Alliance league. Joseph Taylor, Rio Connell and Antonis Vasilou found the net as Dan Senda’s side picked up their second win on the bounce.
Last Season’s Youth Cup Form
Barnet secured a comfortable 4-0 victory over Wingate & Finchley in the opening round of the FA Youth Cup last season. Roy Syla, Benjy Aghadiuno and a brace from Greg Adinna ensured The Bees eased through to the next round. However, it was a different story at the second hurdle as they fell to a 3-1 defeat to MK Dons.
As for Boreham Wood, they were eliminated at the First Round. A 2-1 Second Round Qualifying win over Hendon was followed up by 2-0 victory over Enfield Town in the next stage. However, a 3-1 defeat to Bishop’s Stortford meant they were knocked out at the First Round proper.
The last time these two sides met was at the First Round stage of this competition during the 2015-16 season, The Bees winning 3-1 on that occasion.
