FAYC: United draw Derby

United have been drawn at home against Derby County in the FA Youth Cup fourth round as Paul McGuinness’ youngsters continue their defence of the historic trophy.

Having beaten Torquay in the previous round, the Reds must now face the Rams before Saturday 21 January 2012 with a place in the quarter-final up for grabs.

Derby reached this stage of the competition by beating Arsenal in extra-time last Wednesday, thanks to an impressive finish from 15-year old wonderkid Kane Richards.

County manager Darren Walsall has reacted well to the draw: “It’s another hard draw for us but we’re relishing the prospect of taking on another of Europe’s finest youth sides.”
