Sat 18th Feb 2017

KO 15:00hrs

The U's knockout north east Newcastle in the last round to be rewarded with a trip to the north east to face Middlesborough.

The Borough are in a relegation fight so are likely to field a 2nd string side for the match.

However the U's have faired very well against higher placed teams while guided by Michael Appleton. Can the U's get to the FA Cup Quarter finals? The last time was in 1964.
