Southampton B announce busy pre-season schedule including Spanish camp
SAINTS have announced a busy pre-season schedule for their B team, including two non-league home games, as they prepare for the Premier League 2 campaign.
Young Saints, coached by Dave Horseman, will take part in the reformatted Premier League 2 which saw the age change from an Under-23 competition to an Under-21.
They will travel to Spain as part of their pre-season campaign, around the same time as the first-team visit to Worthersee in Austria. This may mean that some of the best youngsters are not present.
The schedule opens with a clash against Frome Town, at the home of the Somerset side, on Saturday July 9.
They then fly to Spain and face FC Cartagena (Wednesday July 13) and Villareal B (Sunday July 17). The first team will face senior team Villareal in their final game of the pre-season.
Wycombe Wanderers (Saturday July 23) and Watford Under-23s (Saturday July 30) visit the Staplewood Complex and sandwich a clash with National League Eastleigh at Silverlake Stadium (Tuesday July 26).
Finally, Saints B will face AFC Totton at Snows Stadium on Tuesday August 2, before starting their Premier League 2 campaign.
Ticket details for applicable fixtures are to be announced in due course.
