Wolves, Albion and Villa will again play in the regionalised Barclays Premier Reserve League South next season.

Each team will face the seven others twice in the southern section – which includes Arsenal and Chelsea - and play each of the northern teams once, meaning a 22-game season in total.

The teams finishing top in each section meet each other in a play-off final to determine the title, which was last year won by Chelsea, who beat Blackburn on penalties.

The southern section contains Wolves, Albion, Villa, Arsenal, Chelsea, Fulham, Norwich and Swansea.

Manchester United, Liverpool, Blackburn, Bolton, Everton, Newcastle, Sunderland and Wigan make up the northern section.
