Latics' 2018-19 FA Youth Cup campaign will kick off against Wolverhampton Wanderers in the third round.

A date and kick off time is yet to be determined, but the clash with Wolves' Under 18s must be played before Saturday 15 December.

Latics' Under 18s have enjoyed excellent early-season success with 11 victories from 11 matches in all competitions and a healthy six-point lead at the top of the EFL Youth Alliance with two games in hand.

Four of the squad's players have received international honours, with Joe Gelhardt on target six times for England Under 17s alongside team mate Jensen Weir, whilst defender Luke Robinson and leading goal scorer Kyle Joseph have represented Scotland's Under 18s.

More positive news came out of the Academy this week with professional contracts signed by striker Charlie Jolley and defender Emeka Obi.

Latics are back in Under 18 action on Saturday when they host Port Vale in the EFL Youth Alliance at Christopher Park.
