UNDER-23s PREVIEW: NEWCASTLE

14 August 2016

Premier League 2 format set for bow

CITY's Under-23s league campaign gets underway on Monday when they host Newcastle United at Colney Training Centre (2pm).

The Premier League's updated format, which replaces the Under-21s league, sees the young Canaries take their place in the 12-team Division 2 of the new Premier League 2.

Every side will play eachother home and away, with the table-toppers promoted to Division 1 come the end of the season and the second to fifth-placed sides competing in a play-off.

Dmitri Halajko takes charge of the group for his second campaign at the helm, while the likes of Todd Cantwell (pictured), Ben Godfrey and Michee Efete - who all featured for Alex Neil's first-team in pre-season - will be hoping to make their mark on the competition.

The Under-23s have been closely shadowing the senior squad since returning from the summer break, picking up some promising friendly results including convincing wins over Ferencvaros and FC Slovacko while on tour in Austria.
