Limerick face a difficult test with a trip to Cabinteely on the opening day of the SSE Airtricity Under-17 Southern Elite Division season in March, after the fixtures were announced on Friday afternoon.
The young Shannonsiders finished seventh in the inaugural season last year, which included two heavy defeats by the League of Ireland newcomers, but they will hope to learn from that experience with a positive first-day showing.
In a 12-team division, Limerick will play 22 matches, 11 home and 11 away against Cabinteely, Cobh Ramblers, Salthill Devon, Cork City, Waterford United, UCD, Bray Wanderers, Shamrock Rovers, Wexford Youths, Mervue United and Kerry.
While they head to the capital for their first game on the week-ending 20 March, Limerick’s opening home match comes a fortnight later against Cobh. On the final day, they are back on the road when they make the trip to Kerry.
The League Cup will be played on a knockout basis on midweek dates which have yet to be announced, while the League quarter-finals are on the week-ending 16 October. The League final is listed for the week-ending 30 October.
