Liverpool youngsters looking forward to FA Youth Cup

Liverpool academy chief Steve Cooper says his players are looking forward to the FA Youth Cup kicking off.

The Reds face Swindon Town this week.

"They are looking forward to it and the FA Youth Cup has a great tradition throughout the country. The reality is it's another game but it will be good for the boys to play in a different environment to what they are used to. It is different for them playing at a football league ground under the floodlights as opposed to playing on a Saturday morning," Cooper told

"It's good for us as well to assess them to see how they handle the situation. Players have to adapt nowadays and deal with what is in front of them."
