OverviewEdit

The 2013-14 season was the Under-21 squad's second under new FA regulations, albeit with another shuffle of format in regard to the leagues. This season, The U21 Premier League was split into North and South sections as with the U18's. Teams would play each other twice as well as playing a single match against the other teams in the opposing regional leagues. A new addition to the season for the side was the inaugral U21 Premier League Cup, a much needed cup competition for what second-string teams. Kit Symons remained on board as U21 manager for a second successive season. Players promoted from the Under-18 squad were Max Oberschmidt, Josh Passley, Stephen Arthurworrey, Tom Richards, Daniel O'Reilly, Lyle Della-Verde, Muamer Tanković and Cauley Woodrow, and brought in new signings in Ange-Freddy Plumain from Lens and Jonathan Buatu Mananga from Genk. Former Fulham favourite Luís Boa Morte joined up with the club once more as a coach for the U21's as he trained with the club originally to get his UEFA coaching badges. Other notes of interest include the squads trip to Indonesia and Singapore during a gap week in October where they played an Indonesian XI and S-League side Woodlands Wellington.
