Harriers will host Stourbridge in an FA Youth Cup clash at Aggborough Stadium later this month.

The Reds eased to a 4-1 win over Pershore Town under the lights here in the last round, setting up a tasty derby in what is the Second Qualifying Round.

The game will take place on Tuesday, 28 September (7:30pm) and will determine who makes it through to the third and final qualifying stage.

Admission for this match will be £3 adults and £1 U18s for all supporters, including Season Ticket holders. Tickets are on sale online now.

We’re pleased to confirm, however, that GMS Group have very generously purchased a batch of tickets to ensure Harriers’ youngest players are able to cheer on the Academy as they look to make further progress in the competition.

Only a very limited number of complimentary tickets are permitted in the competition but, with hundreds of players packed into the Academy and Junior ranks, there’s the potential for a huge number to come and support the boys.

GMS have made this process even easier, with GMS and Harriers CEO Neil Male explaining: “I don’t want even the smallest barrier to be in the way of our young players coming and supporting the club in the FA Youth Cup.”

“As Harriers fans will know, the local community is a key focus for me and for GMS, so this is something we were very happy to do.”

Harriers Academy and Junior players can take up a paid ticket in advance of the game. Academy players should contact James Long, while Junior players should report to the Ticket Office with their squad details, where a ticket will be waiting for them.

We look forward to seeing a big crowd at Aggborough next Tuesday!
