Derby County Under-18s have been handed a tough draw in the Third Round of the FA Youth Cup against Everton at Pride Park Stadium.

The Under-18s will face the Toffees on Wednesday 4th December (7pm kick-off).

Justin Walker’s side were crowned Under-18 National Champions last season but face a testing tie against the Toffees next month.

The pair faced each other on the opening day of the season back in August and a 2-1 victory secured Everton all three points at Finch Farm.

The Toffees sit third in Premier League North, whilst the Rams sit two places behind them in fifth spot.

Derby reached the Fifth Round of the competition last season, beating Blackpool and Sheffield United along the way, before being knocked out of the tournament by eventual finalists Manchester City.
