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