ACADEMY | Millers and Dons set for Youth Alliance Cup final showdown

17 November 2020

Rotherham United Academy will take on AFC Wimbledon under-18s in the 2019/20 Youth Alliance Cup final tomorrow (Tuesday 17th November) at AESSEAL New York Stadium, with kick-off at 4pm.

Having already won their respective Area Finals, the Millers and the Dons will compete for the trophy in tomorrow’s showpiece.

The young guns began their Youth Alliance Cup campaign in October last year, with victory over Mansfield Town at Roundwood and were due to take on Fleetwood Town in the Northern Area final prior  to the COVID-19 outbreak and subsequent curtailment of the season.

When the fixture was eventually played in October, goals from Jerome Greaves and Ciaran McGuckin booked Richard Hairyes’ side a place in the final.

While there will be some fresh faces from last season’s campaign, this year’s group will still be looking to secure silverware when the Dons visit South Yorkshire tomorrow.

The fixture at AESSEAL New York Stadium will be played behind-closed-doors, therefore we politely request supporters do not attempt to attend the game.

However, following agreement between the two clubs and the EFL, fans of the Millers and Dons will still be able to watch the showpiece final LIVE on our YouTube channel free of charge via the below link.

The stream will go live at 3:50pm, prior to the scheduled 4pm kick-off.
