Current season

Stoke City Football Club Reserves and Academy are the reserve team and the youth development system respectively of Stoke City Football Club. The under-21 team play in the Professional Development League whilst The Academy, competes in the Premier Academy League. Both play their home matches at Stoke's Clayton Wood training ground.

Under-21s[edit]

Stoke were granted category one academy status prior to the start of the 2012–13 season with the new Elite Player Performance Plan. Stoke were entered into the inaugural season of the Professional Development League and were placed in Group 2.[1] They previously played in the Premier Reserve League but withdrew in 2010 due to the amount of travelling involved. Their home matches are played at Nantwich Town's Weaver Stadium as well as the Britannia Stadium whilst in the past Newcastle Town's Lymn Valley Stadium.[2] The under 18s play their home matches at the club's Clayton Wood Training Ground.
