SAINTS B have learned their Premier League Cup group, with clashes versus Everton, Birmingham City and Colchester United.

The 2022-23 season, which will see Dave Horseman’s side compete for promotion from Premier League 2 Division Two, has started well.

The young Saints have come from behind in both of their opening matches to win both and sit top of the table.

The Premier League Cup, a 32-team Champions League-format tournament, will see Saints face unique opposition.

Saints will play Everton, who are in Division One of Premier League 2, as well as Birmingham City and Colchester United from the Professional Development League.

Saints were eliminated at the group stage of last season’s tournament, facing Arsenal, eventual cup-winners West Brom and AFC Bournemouth.

Full dates for Premier League Cup Group:

November 14 Everton (a)

November 21 Birmingham City (a)

November 26 Colchester United (a)

December 2 Colchester United (h)

December 10 Everton (h)

December 16 Birmingham City (h)
