re installed reserve team

Recommended Posts

With the return to the premier league is there any possibility that Reserve team football will once again be on the agenda for this coming season.

I would imagine so, yes. Which is why I can see us keeping the likes of Cody etc. here, because at least they''ll be getting some valuable football.

According to wikipedia we are in the Reserve League South.[quote user="wikipedia"]

The 2011-12 Premier Reserve League (officially known as the 2011-12 Barclays

Premier Reserve League for sponsorship reasons) will be the thirteenth season

since the establishment of the Premier Reserve League. The season start date is

yet to be officially determined.

The events in the senior leagues during the 2010-11 season saw Blackpool and West Ham Utd. relegated and replaced by the

promoted sides Norwich

City & Swansea City. While Birmingham City

were relegated from the Premier League and Queens Park Rangers were promoted to

the Premier League, neither side decided to participate in the reserve league.

The geographical split of the 16 participating teams meant it was possible

to drop the overly-complicated 2010/11 structure and revert to a simpler North

& South structure. The Northern league will now consist of Blackburn Rovers,

Bolton Wanderers, Everton, Liverpool, Manchester United, Newcastle United, Sunderland and Wigan Athletic. Manchester City

chose not to participate this season. The Southern League will consist of Arsenal,

Aston Villa, Chelsea, Fulham (who have chosen to

participate this season), Norwich City, Swansea

City, West Bromwich

Albion & Wolverhampton Wanderers

Each team will play the teams in their own league home and away. They will

also play each team in the other league once (home and away games split

evenly). This will result in 22 league games (14 + 8).

At the conclusion of the league season, the two league winners will play a

final in the home ground of the Northern league winner. The venue alternates

between North & South each year. Last year it was held at Stamford Bridge,

the home of eventual champions Chelsea.

Yeah, definitely back in the reserve league - walking past the hotel by the ground the other day and saw a sign saying "FA Premier Reserve League, gates 4 and 5" or something along those lines.So yeah, definitely in the reserve league!
