AUCKLAND, New Zealand - New Zealand Football has released the National Youth League fixtures for 2019 with the Junior Navy Blues starting the defence of their title with an all-Auckland derby against Eastern Suburbs at the Croatian Club on October 5.
The Junior Navy Blues face their first away match when they travel to Dunedin to take on Southern United a week later before returning to Henderson to play host to Waitakere United in the Super City derby on October 19.
Hawke's Bay United entertain the Junior Navy Blues at Bluewater Stadium on 2 November with the Auckland City FC youngsters welcoming rivals Team Wellington to the Croatian Club seven days later.
The defending champions then hit the road two weeks on the bounce with away games at Hamilton Wanderers on 17 November and Wellington Phoenix on 24 November.
The penultimate match pits Auckland City FC's youngsters off with Tasman United before finishing the campaign with a very tricky trip to English Park in Christchurch to face Canterbury United.
