17 August 2012

John Henry's side kick-off their season against Arsenal at the Emirates this coming Monday

Wanderers’ development squad face Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium in the opening fixture of the new Barclays Under-21 Premier League this coming Monday, with ticketing information now announced.

John Henry and his young side travel to North London determined to hit the ground running as they target a successful season.
Admission for the 7pm kick-off is as follows:

Adults: £4
Juniors: £2

Fans are advised to pre-purchase their tickets. This can be done by clicking here.

Wanderers have had a reasonably solid pre-season programme – drawing four, winning two and losing only one. They began with 1-1 and 2-2 draws at Bamber Bridge and Radcliffe Borough respectively, before beating Chorley 1-0. 

The Trotters followed up on their first win of pre-season with a 1-1 draw against Barrow of the Conference National and 10-0 demolition of Daisy Hill three days later.

Their only defeat of the programme came against Neil Aspin’s FC Halifax Town at The Shay, with Henry’s side going down 1-0. The latest pre-season campaign for the reserves came to a close with a 2-2 draw against League Two outfit Accrington Stanley. 

The new Barclays Under-21 Premier League replaces the Reserve League South/North for 2012/13, with a new nationwide structure designed to raise the standard of competition at youth level and encourage and ensure the progression of young players.
