Saints' Under-18 side is managed by Coach Jason Dodd, and is made up by players from our Academy. Dodd's team takes part in the Barclays U18 Premier League, which involves the 22 clubs with academies classed as Category 1 by the Elite Player Performance Plan.
The Barclays U18 Premier League is regionalised into two eleven-team North and South divisions. Teams within each division play each-other twice across the season, as well as facing those in the other division once. In total, sides play 31 regular league matches per season.
The top two teams from each division will then progress to the semi-finals, with the winner of each league deemed to be the home team, facing the winners-up of the opposing division. Each of the semi-finals shall be played at the home team's registered ground or at a neutral venue determined by the Premier League.
Saints' home matches will generally take place at the Club's Staplewood Training Ground in Marchwood unless otherwise stated.
Due to extensive building works taking place at the training ground, U18 games taking place at Staplewood will do so behind closed doors. Family members or scouts wishing to attend games should make a written or verbal request to the Training Ground and, wherever possible, we will confirm your request with an invitation to attend the game. Please note that there will be no car parking facilities at the Training Ground.
Please disregard the ticketing links on the below fixtures – tickets generally are not available to be purchased for U18 matches.
