The Mayor of Walsall, Councillor Dennis Anson, paid a visit to St George's Park, the new National Football Centre, to see the England women's team preparing for their Euro Qualifier against Croatia, which will be played at the Banks's Stadium, on Wednesday 19th September (5pm KO).
The Mayor, who will be welcoming the side to his home town in two days time, passed on his best wishes to the team and spoke of his pride of hosting the Lionesses on his doorstep.
It is the third time that the England squad have come to Walsall. In 2005 they beat Czech Republic in a friendly, in 2007 8,632 people watched a 4-0 victory over Belarus in a 2009 Euro Qualifier and in 2010 Rachel Yankey earned her 100th international cap and scored in a 3-0 World Cup Qualifying win over Turkey.
Following the past enthusiasm by football fans of Walsall and the unprecedented support at the Olympics where 70,000 people watched England beat Brazil, the Mayor is hoping that his town can boast a sell out crowd and fans will come out in force to cheer on England to next summer's European Championship Finals in Sweden.
Mayor Councillor Dennis Anson said: "We're all very excited about Walsall hosting this international match on Wednesday. In this year of the Olympics and Paralympics we have all been treated to a feast of sport and this promises to be another great sporting occasion.
"I hope as many people as possible take the opportunity to attend the match. It was great to have a look around the new fabulous football centre this morning to see the players preparing for what promises to be a great evening."
