FA Cup action for youth team

The FA Youth Cup 1st Round tie is the biggest game in Sphinx's history and boss John Woodward told the FA website: "To be playing Nottingham Forest is a fabulous occasion for the whole club and for those players taking part it will be a memory they'll keep forever.

"What we must do is prepare as we do for any other game," he added.

"Obviously there will be a large crowd and distractions but we must remain focused and ensure we match Forest in every department.

"No one is expecting Sphinx to beat Nottingham Forest but as we've seen in the FA Cup down the years, everyone loves an underdog."
