Arsenal Under-23s’ fixtures announced

Under-21 training session
Steve Gatting's side will return to action on Friday

Arsenal’s second string will begin the 2016/17 season against Reading at Meadow Park on Friday, August 12.

The 7pm kick-off will be the Gunners’ first game in the newly-rebranded Premier League Two Division One, formerly known as the Under-21 Premier League.

Steve Gatting’s side will then face Manchester City at the Etihad a week later, before hosting Liverpool at Emirates Stadium on August 26.

The new Premier League Two has a greater focus on a level of play in terms of technicality, physicality and intensity to bring players as close to first-team experience as possible, which is why the age limit for players has risen from under-21 to under-23 (players born after January 1, 1993).

The rules regarding overage players will remain the same, where each team can field a goalkeeper over the age limit and up to three overage outfield players in every match.
