Youngsters to take on Argyle in April semi-final
The date for Exeter City’s semi-final tie against Plymouth Argyle in the St Lukes Bowl has been agreed for Tuesday 9th April, with a 7.30pm kick-off. The game will be contested at Home Park.
Having been handed a bye in the first round, a representative City side have since beaten Willand Rovers and Tiverton Town so far to reach the final four in the competition.
A young City squad defeated Tivvy last week by a 4-1 scoreline, thanks to a brace by Tom Nichols and a goal apiece by Ollie Watkins and Jamie Reid. That game had been a rematch of the 2009 final, when City had triumphed 2-0 at Ladysmead.
Torquay United are also semi-finalists, and will face the winners of the Plymouth Parkway v Bideford tie which takes place on Tuesday 12th March.
