Saints Development Squad’s match at home to Newcastle United has been re-arranged to take place on Friday 4th April.

The Barclays Under-21 Premier League – originally planned for a day later – will be staged at St Mary’s with a 2pm kick-off.

Southampton’s welcoming of the Magpies represents their last clash of the group stage, with Martin Hunter’s third-placed team battling to retain a top-four position to ensure entry to the final stage of the competition.

Saints will be familiar with Newcastle’s side, having secured a 2-0 victory over them in their 2013/14 pre-season tour of the north east.

Tickets will be available to attend the match at the Club’s stadium, with an announcement coming on saintsfc.co.uk in the near future.
