Under-23s' Premier League 2 fixtures confirmed
Written by Tom Easterby
The fixtures for the 2018/19 Premier League 2 Division Two season have been announced, with Newcastle United Under-23s set to kick-off the campaign at West Bromwich Albion.
The young Magpies side are part of a strong 12-team division this year as they bid to gain promotion to the top tier.
They will face competition from the likes of Manchester United, Southampton, Wolverhampton Wanderers and fellow North East sides Sunderland and Middlesbrough.
United will once again play their home games at Whitley Park in Benton, the Northumberland FA headquarters, but are set to play three home games at St. James’ Park – the Tyne-Wear derby with Sunderland in August, October’s visit of Middlesbrough and April’s clash with ex-Magpie Nicky Butt’s Manchester United.
