An away trip to Arsenal or Reading is the reward for Royston Town’s U18s as they defeated Oxford City in the third round in the FA Youth Cup.

The Crows’ youngsters claimed a 3-1 victory away at Oxford on Monday night to set themselves up as the only side from a non-league club left in the competition.

They join the likes of Liverpool, Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle who have also already booked their place in the fourth round.

Arsenal and Reading play out their third round clash on Friday night at Boreham Wood FC’s Meadow Park.
