Whites group revealed.
Leeds United’s Under-21s have been placed in Group B in the Northern section of the 2022/23 Papa John’s Trophy, after the draw was made live on Sky Sports on Thursday morning.
The Whites will play alongside three EFL teams, Bolton Wanderers, Crewe Alexandra and Tranmere Rovers, with all matches for the Whites to take place away from home.
Each team in the group stage will play each other once, with the top two progressing into the knock-out stages of the competition. As usual, three points are awarded for a win and one for a draw, but there is a bonus point to be gained through a penalty shoot-out, should the match end in a draw.
The Trophy is split into two sections, North & South, with four groups of four teams in each section. There are eight invited Under-21 sides from Premier League clubs, with four on each side of the draw.
Fixture dates, locations and times will be announced once finalised.
