Newcastle's FA Youth Cup third round tie against Barnsley will take place at Oakwell next month.

The draw was made last week and it has now been confirmed that the match will kick off at 7pm on Tuesday, 17th December.

All ties are due to be played before Saturday, 21st December.

Dave Watson's side will be hoping to do better than last year, when they were handed a tough tie at Arsenal in the third round and lost 3-0.

The year before that, they reached the quarter-finals before losing on penalties to Blackburn at St. James' Park.

Ticket prices will be £1 for everyone, with the proceeds being donated to Barnsley Hospice.
