Blues youths take on Manchester United youths at St. Andrew's

Blues Under-17s are entertaining Manchester United Under-17s in a friendly.
Blues future prospects like Odin Bailey, Tommy Anderson, Joe Redmond, Caolan Boyd-Munce, Ryan Stirk and Tai-Reece Chisholm are set to be on show and get their first experience of playing at St. Andrew's.
Kick-off is at 7pm and admission is FREE. Supporters will need to leave the stadium for a short time after the Huddersfield match but can return on the Kop side from 6.30pm onwards.
The game is part of Blues Academy's traditional end of season 'play on the pitch' series of friendlies for the various age group teams, from Under-9s upwards.
Lead Professional Development Coach Steve Spooner has urged supporters who want to see the next generation of Blues youngsters to go along.
“We try to give the players the opportunity of playing against a big club in the stadium,” he said.
“We played Tottenham last year and have played Liverpool and the Republic of Ireland Under-18s previously. 
"It gives our players the opportunity to go inside the First Team dressing room and to play on the St. Andrew's pitch. 
"I would to say to the supporters that are reading this, that it would be lovely to get a few hundred people inside the stadium watching them and for them to see the next generation coming through."
Blues (from): Siviter, Beardmore, Moore, Redmond, Forrest, Roberts, Stirk, Boyd-Munce, Chisholm, Bailey, Anderson, Clarke, Burke, Hamilton, Concannon, Okoro, Baker, Hilton.
