11am Saturday Greenhous Meadow game for youth team
Shrewsbury Town's youngsters will have a rare chance to grace the Greenhous Meadow when they take on Port Vale in the Midland Youth Cup on Saturday morning (11am).
Town will be aiming to complete a third successive victory after a 2-1 win in the Youth Alliance over Macclesfield at Moss Rose last weekend was followed by an impressive 4-2 victory in a rearranged Youth Alliance Cup first round tie at Blackpool on Wednesday afternoon.
"It could have been a lot more as we played very well and created a lot of chances," said Town's head of youth Wayne Evans. "Had the lads taken the chances, we could have scored a few more goals."
Sam Molineux and Dave Easthope, from distance, were both on target before substitute Deion Evans came off the bench to score twice to sink the young Tangerines at Blackpool's training ground.
"The build up play was very good for a couple of the goals," said Wayne. "It was pleasing how we passed it and moved it to create chances.
"It was a long journey up there and we were comfortable. We gave a couple of sloppy goals away so that's been spoken about but overall I was very happy."
Town's reward is a second round tie at home to Hull City on Saturday, December 1.
Town's youngsters are now looking forward to having the chance to show what they can do at the Greenhous Meadow against Vale in the Midland Youth Cup this weekend.
It will be a nice change of scenery for them as home games are usually played at the Shrewsbury Sports Village.
"Hopefully they'll perform out there," added Wayne. "It will be a great experience for them and their families to come and watch them play here.
"The result will take care of itself but it's important that the lads play in the correct way."
