Following this afternoon's news that Walsall's Under 18s have been drawn at home to Coventry City in the First Round of this season's FA Youth Cup, Saddlers Head of Youth Development Neil Woods has spoken to Media Officer Dale Moon and has discussed how much of a test these type of games can be for the younger players.

Speaking via Saddlers.co.uk, Neil said; "The thing that always excites us as both staff and players is the big game feel to the FA Youth Cup. The fact that it is played on the main first team pitch, in front of a few more spectators is always a good test of how we can deal with those occasions.

"It's always nice to play against teams with a big stature and it will be interesting to see the way they play. It's about finding out who enjoys these kind of nights and how they adjust and adapt to the game.

"We play in Midlands Youth Cup, the Walsall and Birmingham senior cups, all to create as many of these situations and scenarios as we can. We've won two of last three Midland Youth Cups so it suggests we deal pretty well."
