St Neots Town U18 side begin their quest for FA glory with a First Round Qualifying home tie with Kettering Town U18 on Wednesday 23rd September.  In the Preliminary Round St Neots drew a bye whilst their visitors progressed with a 2-1 home victory over Leighton Town U18 side.
St Neots have a patchy record in the competition with only one win in their last five games in the competition.   However, they have twice reached the third round – in the 2015/16 and 2011/12 seasons.   In that 2011/12 run they defeated Kettering Town 2-0 away from home in round two but lost to Soham Town away in the next round.
