Crewe Alexandra's Under 18's travel to Colchester United on Thursday 14 December in their FA Youth Cup Third Round tie, kick-off 7pm.
Like Crewe, the U's compete in the Professional Development League 2, with the clash set to be an even encounter between two very competitive academy sides.
The Alex progressed with a 4-0 midweek victory against Evesham to make it through to the next stage of the competition, having previously defeated Handsworth Parramore in Round One.
The U's beat Cheshunt and Bishop's Stortford to reach the Third Round.
Tickets for the encounter at The Weston Home Community Stadium are priced at £7 adults, £5 concessions, £3 U14's & £1 U8's.
