The FA have confirmed that this season’s FA Youth Cup has been suspended.

MK Dons Under-18s were due to face Leeds United this Thursday evening in the Third Round of the competition, but that tie will no longer take place.

The FA said in a statement: “We can confirm our decision to temporarily suspend the 2020-21 FA Youth Cup and have discussed this with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport and the competing clubs.

“The health and wellbeing of players and staff are of paramount importance and we intend to resume the national competition once the UK Government’s current national COVID-19 lockdown concludes and it is deemed safer for clubs to travel.

“The FA Youth Participation & Development Committee, which is responsible for management of the competition, will continue to review the situation and we will provide further updates at the earliest opportunity.”
