    A great achievement, well done to everyone involved.

    It's Sheffield Wednesday at home in the semi-final who finished 2nd in their league today. Would be good for Sky Blues Trust to get behind it.

    It's great to see as they could be the entire first team in a couple of years time. Good to see they have a winning mentality built in.

    What a club of contradictions we are.

    Well done all involved in the academy. You thoroughly deserve this.

    We play second placed from the South League Sheffield Wednesday. If we beat them we go into the final against the other semi winner to determine an overall winner of the U18 league.

    We just win a trophy. I always thought it would be better having a promotion and relegation system so the Cat 2 teams who are winning a lot can test thereselves against better teams

    Beat Wednesday and it could be Sheffield United in the final, win that and we can have a pitch invasion!

    I think they have a game on Tuesday against Crystal Palace,do you know the kick off time?It would be good to see a good crowd especially with the kids off school.

    Yes 1PM. Think it'll be quite a young team though because most of the older 18s played 90 mins Sat, there's a 23s game tomorrow and there's nothing much to play for with the league already won

    U18s finish their regular season with a 3-0 win over Crystal Palace with 5 U16s playing. Dan Smith, Kyle Finn and Liam Doyle scored the goals to make it 21 wins from 28 games.

    Play-off semi final date against Sheffield Wednesday has been set for Saturday 22nd April at the Alan Higgs Centre with a noon kick-off. Be great to see as many fans there as possible to support the young players :)

    Thought they'd already won, why is there a play off?

    Is there plenty of parking at Higgs? Might head up for that before the Walsall game at the Ricoh.

    They won the Northern Section but the play-off games are to decide the overall winner of the U18 league, there's a final if we win the semi final which will be played at first team ground

    Yes, plenty of parking
