Huddersfield Town’s Under 21 Development side will be aiming to continue a run of success for the club this season.
They finished last term with the Professional Development League II play-off title under coach Frankie Bunn.
And when they kick-off the new season at home to Charlton Athletic a week on Sunday, August 14 (2pm), the undoubted focus will be positive.
Coach David Wagner has used the likes of Rekeil Pyke, Regan Booty and Jordan Williams in his pre-season senior squad, while goalkeepers Luke Coddington and George Dorrington have been added to the group.
Most matches this season will be played on Sundays and Mondays and, indeed, it will be Sunday best required when Town entertain Leeds United Under 21s on November 20 (2pm).
Town travel to Leeds on a Monday, but not until February 20.
The regular season concludes at home to Bolton Wanderers on Sunday, April 23.

Town won last season’s crown by beating Sheffield United 2-1 in the play-off final.
Jacob Hanson fired an 85th-minute winner to seal a 2-1 win over the Blades in front of a bumper 4,018 crowd at Bramall Lane.
William Boyle had put Town ahead on 80 minutes only for the Blades to conjure a quickfire leveller.
As well as winning the PDL II North title (United were runners-up and the pair beat Millwall and Charlton Athletic respectively in the semi-finals) Town reached the semi-finals of the Under 21 Premier League Cup. A penalty shoot-out defeat by Hull City was a major frustration.
