Bury Town Under-18s have been handed a place in the second round of the FA Youth Cup, despite losing 3-0 to Dagenham and Redbridge Under-18s at Ram Meadow on Monday.

The Blues’ youngsters will travel to either Cheltenham Town or VCD Athletic — who play their first-round encounter on Sunday — in the second round later this month.

The Football League Daggers were found to have fielded an ineligible player in the match and have now been excluded from the national competition.

Cheltenham’s senior first team — like Dagenham — play in Sky Bet League Two, while VCD’s senior side play in Ryman One North, a division below Bury’s first XI.
