Exeter City U23 begin their Premier League Cup group stage with the visit of Swansea City to St James Park on Tuesday evening.
Following a preliminary round victory of Plymouth Argyle at Home Park on Friday, City go into the group to face three category one academy sides with Wolverhampton Wanderers and West Ham United joining the Welsh side in the tournament.
City have form in this competition, reaching the last-16 stage in 2019/20, being cruelly denied a match against Newcastle United following the cancellation of the competition owing to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Confirmed match dates so far:
- Tuesday 7th September - Swansea City (H) - 7pm
- Wednesday 15th September - Wolves (H) - 7pm
Remaining fixtures will be scheduled in due course.
Dan Green's Thoughts
"The other three teams in the group are all category one academies so it's going to be tough," he said.
"It's a chance for the players to play at home in front of fans and it's a good opportunity to get the lads out there, playing together and letting the fans see our future.
"We have to balance the squad with the player that are coming through and those first team players who are just coming back from injury or need more minutes."
