U18s' Elite Group Campaign Starts Friday

By SFC Media Mon 07 Jan Club

Our Under-18s will kick off the Elite Group Stage of the Barclays U18 Premier League with a home game against Chelsea this Friday afternoon.

Saints topped National Group 2 in the first half of the season, ensuring they were one of eight sides to qualify for the Elite Group in the latter half of the campaign.

And the newly-released fixture list sees Jason Dodd’s side take on Group 3 winners Chelsea in the first of their 14 Elite Group matches.

The top three sides in the Elite Group will progress to the four-team end-of-season tournament along with the winner of a play-off between the sides that top Tiers 1 and 2 of the Qualification Group.
