England hit five in warm up
 Women's Football News 29 Oct 2013
 
England Under-17s warmed up for the forthcoming European Championships by putting five goals past Wales at AFC Telford's New Bucks Head Stadium. 
 
With a place at next month's UEFA Championship Finals secured by virtue of their status as hosts, England were in a confident mood on Monday and had effectively ended the tie as a contest inside the opening half an hour.
 
England lost 6-0 in their last outing, at the hands of USA, but memories of that defeat were forgotten quickly as Chloe Kelly broke the deadlock within 120 seconds, guiding the ball into the bottom corner with a neat finish.
 
Wales goalkeeper Charlotte Edmunds was left picking the ball out of her net once more just 14 minutes later as Sarah Mayling made the most of good work from captain Leah Williamson and Evie Clarke to double the hosts' advantage.
 
England dominated possession, pinning the visitors back into their own half, with Williamson impressing with her varied range of passing. It was no surprise when England netted again after 27 minutes as Williamson rose perfectly to meet Mayling's flighted corner kick and head the ball beyond Edmunds.
 
It could have been four shortly after the restart, but winger Clarke saw her effort land inches wide of the post following a glorious team move that had started at the feet of goalkeeper Kirstie Levell. A fourth did arrive soon after, however, with Jenna Legg converting from the penalty spot after she was felled inside the box.
 
England weren't finished though, and Williamson grabbed her second of the match with another header in the closing stages.
 
The teams will meet again in another friendly behind closed doors at St George's Park on Thursday. 
 
England Under-17: Kirstie Levell (sub Sian Rogers 60mins), Alice Hassall (sub Phillippa Cowley 60mins), Gabrielle George, Leah Williamson, Jemma Purfield (sub Rebecca Lloyd 60mins), Mollie Rouse (sub Atlanta Primus 60mins), Jenna Legg, Sarah Mayling, Evie Clarke (sub Chloe Wilkinson 70mins), Ashleigh Plumptre, Chloe Kelly. Subs not used: Ella Williams, Sophie Stamp, Lucy Porter, Ella Hartley.

Wales Under-17: Charlotte Edmunds, Lowri Ridings, Shauna Pentney (sub Lily Stevens 18mins), Fiona Dodge (sub Niamh Tinman 57mins, sub Shannon Evans 65mins), Olivia Fuller, Kylie Nolan, Charlie Estcourt, Rebecca Pritchard, Laura Mitchell, Kelsey Davies, Katy Hosford. Subs not used: Megan Roberts, Nia Jones, Taylah Rogers.
