Blackburn Rovers v Chelsea - FA Youth Cup Final 2nd Leg
Following last weeks confirmation of the fixtures being released for the U21′s league, the fixtures have been announced for the upcoming U18′s season and again there are changes that have been made.

Last season, the U18′s league was split into 3 initial groups of all the teams given Category 1 status. Each team then played home and away against the teams in their group. The league then split half way through the season into 3 again, this time determined by where the teams finished in their initial group so the best played against each other and so on.

The U21′s this year have 1 big league where each team will play each other either home and away with the top 4 playing off. The U18′s this year though are doing neither of those things. This year the U18′s league is split into 2 with a North/South divide. Chelsea will play each team in their group home and away and will play the teams in the other group once either home or away. which in the end adds up to 31 games.

After the completion of the league fixtures the top 2 teams from each group will go into a play off to decide who the U18′s league champions will be. Of course on top of these fixtures will the normal set of Youth Cup fixtures.
