Liverpool in U18 Premier League action against Derby

U18 Premier League fixtures announced, with Steven Gerrard's first match as coach an away trip on Friday 11 August

Liverpool will kick off the new-look 2017/18 Under-18 Premier League with a trip to Derby County on Friday 11 August, in what will be Steven Gerrard's first match as coach of the Reds' U18 team. 

The 1pm kick-off will be followed by a full programme of fixtures on Saturday, with defending champions Chelsea starting with a visit to Aston Villa. 

Scott Parker begins his competitive career as Tottenham Hotspur's U18 coach with a home tie against Norwich City. Newcastle United v Manchester City is another standout match on the opening weekend. 

The competition will remain as two 12-team regional divisions, the North Group and the South Group, but the format following the regular League format has changed. 

The North Group winners and South Group winners will contest a national final for the U18 Premier League title. It will be a one-off tie at a main stadium.
