Limerick will kick off their 2016 SSE Airtricity Under-19 Southern Elite Division season at home to UCD in mid-March, after the fixtures were announced on Friday afternoon.
The young Shannonsiders will be aiming to go all the way this year having finished as runners-up last season, which followed a semi-final defeat the previous term, with the coming campaign running alongside the senior League of Ireland season for the first time.
In a ten-team division, Tommy Barrett’s side will play 18 games, nine home and nine away against UCD, Cobh Ramblers, Bray Wanderers, Waterford United, Cork City, Shamrock Rovers, Galway United, Cabinteely and Wexford Youths.
While their opener sees them entertain the Students on the weekend of 13 March, their first road trip comes the following weekend at Cobh Ramblers, where they incidentally kicked off last season. On the final day, they welcome Wexford to Hogan Park.
The League Cup kicks off at the end of May with the final taking place in September, while the League quarter-finals are on the week-ending 2 October. The League final is listed for the week-ending 23 October.
