Saints' Under-21 side is managed by Coach Martin Hunter, and is made up by players from the Development Squad. Hunter's team takes part in the Barclays U21 Premier League, which involves the 22 clubs with academies classed as Category 1 by the Elite Player Performance Plan.
Having played each other once, either home or away, the top four teams in the table will progress to the semi-final stage and final to determine the overall Barclays U21 Premier League winners.
The Academies who finish first and fourth in the League will meet in one semi-final, with the former at home. The second- and third-placed clubs will meet in the other semi-final, with the League runners-up deemed the home team.
Saints' home matches will generally take place at the Club's Staplewood Training Ground in Marchwood or – on select occasions – at St Mary's Stadium.
Due to extensive building works taking place at the training ground, U21 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 in advance of U21 matches.
