The Fulham Under-23 squad is currently Fulham's second-string team, competing in Premier League 2 under the FA. The side was introduced in 2016 and essentially replaced the pre-existing U21 squad. They are coached by Mark Pembridge and currently compete in Premier League 2 Division 2. The captain of the side as of 2018-19 is Aron Davies, playing their home matches at the club's training facility at Motspur Park. Since a re-vamp of the EFL Trophy, they have accepted invitations into the tournament since 2017-18 which enables them to play first team clubs from League One and League Two.
