Date set for Youth Cup tie

West Ham United's FA Youth Cup third round tie away at Southampton will be played at St Mary's Stadium on Tuesday 9 December, kick-off 7pm.

Steve Potts' side will be looking to better their experience in this competition from last year, when Accrington Stanley ended their participation at this stage.

The Hammers are currently third in the Barclays U18 Premier League South table, while Southampton are seven places worse off.

West Ham enjoy a fine tradition in the FA Youth Cup, having lifted the trophy on three occasions - 1963, 1981 and 1999.
