Our Under-18s Representative Squad finally got their hands on The FA County Youth Cup Trophy after sharing the spoils with Norfolk.
Manager Jay Lovett said it was with “great disappointment” that they were unable to play the final but shared his delight at how his side performed over the course of the season.
After a 100% record in the league campaign, we began our pursuit of the cup with a 1-0 away win at Bedfordshire FA before a convincing 8-1 victory at home to Durham in the quarter-final.
You have to go back to 1952 for the last time Sussex won the County Youth Cup and we came face to face away to a strong Devon side in the semi-final.
In torrid conditions, Sussex prevailed with an Olly Munt goal enough to see Jay Lovett’s side setup a juicy final against Norfolk at The Den, Millwall.
Unfortunately, the COVID-19 outbreak prevented the tie from taking place with our Chairman, Mathew Major, saying, "we did everything in our power to get the tie played”, but it wasn’t to be.
