Disagree.
Southampton are an established Premiership team who are not too far away so could bring plenty of away support.
And possibly more chance of beating them than Arsenal last season.

I agree. Far better chance of progressing.

When will we know who we are playing in terms of fixture dates?
My mileage; yours may vary, of course.....

Glamorous if Premier League but will be good to see aspiring players in action.

One of the benefits of playing the Southampton U23 team is that they have one of the best academies in the country. Wouldn't completely rule out seeing a Southampton loanee coming our way in January if we like the look of any of them from the group games.

About FGR

We’re a club that looks to the future, but our identity is forged from a rich 128-year history. Founded in 1889, we’re one of the oldest football clubs in the world.

In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience. FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world. That’s quite an accolade, and it shows how we’ve been able to bring together football and environmental consciousness at the highest levels of the game.
