St Albans City has applied to put its reserve team in the Spartan South Midlands League for the upcoming season.
The Saints will go into Division Two, pending a decision at the league’s AGM on June 27.
The reserves, the former development squad, played eight games in the five-team Captial League last season.
The move comes as the club tries to get regular senior football for it’s younger players.
Speaking to the Herts Ad last month, City chairman Nick Archer said: “We’ve got good U17 and U18 players who aren’t ready for first-team football but are ready for senior football. We’ve applied to a new league because, in the old one, there wasn’t enough football to keep a regular squad together.”
