The team coached by Chris Samways, Jak Hamilton and Liam Dwyer will compete in the finals against five sides from around the country.

The squad of captain Adam Simpson, Ben Kelly, Andrew Parsonage, Chris Thomas, Sam Goldney, Ali Vivado and Dennis Cranswick will travel to St George’s Park with the aim of improving on their last four finish last year.

And should they win, they will be presented with the trophy during half-time break at the FA Cup Final.

A club spokesman said: “City Youth and everyone involved in the disability section are extremely proud of all three teams who competed this year and it is a tremendous achievement to have one of the teams reach the finals.”
