Aldershot test in Youth Cup

West Ham United will play host to Aldershot Town in the FA Youth Cup third round.

The tie will take place at Boleyn Ground on Tuesday 7 December, with kick-off at 7pm.

Last week's draw originally pitted the Hammers against the winner of a second-round meeting between Aldershot and AFC Wimbldeon, with the Shots running out 3-0 winners away from home on Wednesday night. Aldershot had won 3-2 at Cirencester Town in the first round.

West Ham have won the FA Youth Cup on three previous occasions, lifting the trophy in 1963, 1981 and 1999.

The Hammers, who were the first club drawn out of the hat, reached the fifth round last season, defeating Plymouth Argyle and Queens Park Rangers before being defeated by Newcastle United at the Boleyn Ground.

In this year's competition, holders Chelsea begin their defence with a trip to Sunderland, while 2010 runners-up Aston Villa visit Bristol Rovers.
