Our congratulations go to our youth side who, once again, have reached the final of the FA Youth Cup.
Last night the youngsters took a narrow 2-1 lead, from the semi-final first leg, to the Emirates Stadium to see if they could hold off the challenge the Gunners would present and reach the final where Fulham were waiting for the winners.
The youngsters produced a display that belied their years and were rewarded with a 1-0 win. The goal, a rather fortunate one, came in the 20th minute when Charlie Colkett tried to pull the ball back, from the by-line, for Dominic Solanke to tap in. Unfortunately for the home side their keeper, Josh Vickers, got in a bit of a pickle and somehow saw the ball squirm under hi sbody, hit his heel and roll over the line.
The 3-1, on aggregate, score-line gives Chelsea their fourth FA Youth Cup Final appearance in five years, a remarkable feat and something the club should be proud of.
