Harry Bachelor, Sam Beard, Max Bickell, Joel Colbran, Ollie Gill, Rhyan Ramsey and Tom Summerfield have all been selected from The Magpies.

Horsham youngster Jake Chadwick has also been included in the 20-man squad.

Kick-off at the Winfield Way ground is at 1pm.

Dave Edmunds, chairman of The FA Youth committee, said: “We are delighted that Crawley Town have agreed to stage The FA County Youth Cup Final. We are sure that the players from both associations will appreciate being able to perform at a Football League arena.

“We’d like to thank Crawley Town for their cooperation in staging the game.”

Colbran and Bachelor were on target in the last round as Sussex booked their place in the final with a 3-2 extra-time win over last year’s winners Cheshire.

Their opponents Liverpool won 1-0 at Leicestershire & Rutland FA in their semi-final.

The rest of the final squad includes: Tom Caplin (Burgess Hill Town), Niall Cheshire (Eastbourne Town), Charlie Coppola (Lewes), Kieran Deacon (Bognor Regis Town), Matt Hards (Worthing), Toby House (Burgess Hill Town), Keeley Johnson (Burgess Hill Town), Adam Lovatt (Eastbourne Borough), Dan Rose (Hastings United), Alieu Secka (Peacehaven & Telscombe) and Michael Waller (Worthing).

Tickets are £5 for adults and £1 for concessions (under-16s).
