The fixtures for the new Premier League Under-18 season have now been confirmed.
Billy Barr's youngsters, who reached both the elite play-off group stage, and the semi-finals of the FA Youth Cup last season, begin their 2016-17 campaign away to Liverpool on Monday August 15th.
Derby County are the visitors to Brockhall on Saturday August 20th, before Rovers end the first month away at Newcastle United the following weekend.
The format follows the same structure as last season with Rovers in the 12-team northern group. Each club will play 22 league games before the teams are split into three play-off groups of eight from both the north and south divisions.
