Newcastle United's FA Youth Cup third round tie at Portsmouth will be played at Fratton Park next month.

Dave Watson's young Magpies will travel to the South Coast for a 7pm kick-off on Friday, 9th December.

Pompey beat Metropolitan Police 2-0 in the second round to set up the tie against United, who were quarter-finalists in 2014 and 2015, losing to eventual winners Chelsea on each occasion.

Newcastle were knocked out by AFC Wimbledon at the fourth round stage last season.
