Bristol City’s fixtures for the 2022/23 U21 Development League has been released and they will begin their campaign on the road.

This means that squads will be younger although there will still be the opportunity to play three players over the age of 21.

Last season saw the likes of Nahki Wells, who was out-of-favour in the senior team, make a few appearances, as did George Tanner who was stepping up his recovery from injury.

The young Robins reached the regional final last year but suffered defeat at the hands of Coventry City.

The team lasfeaturing the likes of Dylan Kadji, who has trained with the first-team this pre-season, as well as Ryley Towler and captain Josh Owers, who is the son of City legend Gary.
