Everton Reserves' season in the FA Reserves Premier League (Northern Section)

Everton's Reserve side plays in the FA Barclays Premier Reserve League Northern Section but didn't do very well last season, finishing fourth out of five in their increasingly pointless Northern mini-group, with many of the second string players loaned out, ostensibly to save money!

Everton Reserves play most of their matches at Finch Farm, with the bigger games in Stobart Stadium, Widnes. 
Kick-off: usually 7 pm on Tuesdays except where indicated.  

The FA Premier Reserve League (FAPRL) format has been messed around with yet again, with four clubs — Fulham, Spurs, Birmingham and Stoke withdrawing their teams and the Premier League Board approving a new Reserve League format for the 2010-11 season. Participating clubs are split into three regionalised groups as follows:

Southern Group Northern Group A Northern Group B
Arsenal Bolton Wanderers Blackburn Rovers
Aston Villa Manchester City Blackpool
Chelsea Manchester United Everton
West Bromwich Albion Newcastle United Liverpool
West Ham United Wigan Athletic Sunderland
Wolverhampton Wanderers

Each team plays home and away against the other teams in their group and once against all other teams (equally divided home and away). Teams in the Southern Group play a total of 20 matches and teams in the two Northern Groups play 19 matches each. The winners of the two Northern Groups will play off to determine the Northern League Winners. The Northern League Winners will then play off against the Southern Group Winners to determine the Barclays Premier Reserve League Play-Off Winners.

The Premier League Board has also given approval for clubs' training grounds to be used to stage fixtures.

Everton's games in the Liverpool Senior Cup are covered here also.  Some of the Reserves play in the FA Youth Cup too.
