By SFC Media Wed 24 Feb Club

Southampton’s Barclays Under-18 Premier League play-off fixtures have been confirmed.

Having finished 11th in the South Division, Craig Fleming’s side will now take on Brighton & Hove Albion, Norwich City and Swansea City for a third time this season.

They will also go up against Newcastle United, Manchester United, Derby County and Stoke City, who finished in the bottom four of the North Division.

The play-offs begin for Fleming’s side with a home game against Swansea City on Saturday – a side they beat 3-1 away from home and lost 3-0 to at Staplewood during the regular season.

Next up for Fleming’s side on Saturday 5th March is a trip to Brighton & Hove Albion, followed by a game against Derby County at Staplewood the week after.

A long trip to Newcastle United on Saturday 19th March comes before a three-week break that ends when Norwich City visit the south coast on Saturday 9th April.

Two away trips end the campaign for Fleming’s side, who visit Stoke City on Saturday 16th April before making the journey to Manchester United two weeks later for their final game of the season.

The games are currently scheduled to kick-off at 11am, but all dates and times are subject to change.
