Chelsea Under-18s have received confirmation of their upcoming fixtures in the Under-18 Premier League Merit Group after the national competition fixtures were released on Tuesday morning.
The Blues will now compete in an eight-team mini-league to fight for the right to be crowned national Under-18 Premier League champions.
Chelsea won the southern section of the Under-18 Premier League by a wide margin last month following a sequence of five straight league wins while Jody Morris’ side have not been defeated since losing 5-4 at Norwich City in early September. The Blues have also kept clean sheets in each of their last six matches in all competitions.
The Under-18 Premier League Merit Group sees Chelsea face the top four teams from the northern section of the Under-18 Premier League along with the three southern sides who finished directly below The Blues in their own division with the overall mini-league’s winners being crowned the national Under-18 Premier League champions.
