Steven Gerrard's Liverpool U18s will begin their 2017-18 season with a trip to Derby County.

The campaign gets under way for the Reds legend and his team with an afternoon kick-off on Friday August 11, before back-to-back home games at the Academy against Blackburn Rovers and Newcastle United.

And there is an early-season mini-derby to look forward to, with Everton set to visit the Kirkby base for an evening encounter on Friday September 22.
