England name U23 and U19 squads

England’s next generation are preparing for action again with two WU23 fixtures confirmed against the Netherlands during a warm-weather camp in Spain.

Mo Marley will take a 24-player squad to the Pinatar Arena in Murcia for the matches against the Dutch on Friday 8th April, kick off 3pm BST, and Monday 11th April, kick off 11am BST.

Marley said: “We are really pleased to have lined up these two games against strong opposition. Every time we play it is a chance for the players to show what they can do and continue their development – while also building those close connections you need with team-mates on and off the pitch as you come through the pathway.”

In February, the Young Lionesses played a double-header away to France, drawing 1-1 after a 3-2 defeat. Ebony Salmon scored in both games, while Missy Bo Kearns was also on target in the first fixture.

England Under-23 Squad:

Fran Bentley (Bristol City *), Sandy MacIver (Everton), Emily Ramsey (Birmingham City *), Asmita Ale (Tottenham Hotspur), Megan Finnigan (Everton), Grace Fisk (West Ham Utd), Gabrielle George (Everton), Taylor Hinds (Liverpool), Maya Le Tissier (Brighton & Hove Albion), Mayumi Pacheco (Aston Villa), Lucy Parker (West Ham Utd), Poppy Pattinson (Everton), Missy Bo Kearns (Liverpool), Melisa Filis (West Ham Utd), Ruby Grant (University of North Carolina), Shannon O’Brien (Leicester City), Molly Pike (Leicester City), Rinsola Babajide (Real Betis), Ellie Brazil (Brighton & Hove Albion), Emma Harries (Reading FC Women), Lauren James (Chelsea), Jessica Park (Manchester City), Katie Robinson (Charlton Athletic *), Ebony Salmon (Racing Louisville).

England’s next step on the road towards the 2021-22 UEFA European Women’s Under-19 Championship begins this weekend at St. George’s Park.

The Young Lionesses’ fixtures will begin against neighbours Wales on Wednesday 6th April before they take on Iceland on Saturday 9th April. The group will conclude with a meeting with Belgium on Tuesday 12th April. All three matches will kick off at 1.30pm BST.

Head coach Gemma Davies said: “We are really looking forward to this camp and with a place in the tournament this summer up for grabs, the players know they have a great incentive to do well.

“Of course, qualification for the finals would be a great achievement as getting tournament experience and playing the strongest opposition in their age group is crucial in the development of players at this age.

“I know the players will also take so much from just being together as a group and participating in competitive international fixtures. To play at St. George’s Park and use the wonderful facilities here is a huge privilege and we all can’t wait to get started.”

England won through to this stage after three wins from three in Round 1 with victories against Switzerland, Republic of Ireland and mini-tournament hosts Northern Ireland back in October 2021.

England Under-19 squad:

Eleanor Heeps (Blackburn Rovers *), Khiara Keating (Manchester City), Tara Bourne (Blackburn Rovers *), Anouk Denton (University of Louisville), Jorja Fox (Charlton Athletic *), Neve Herron (Sunderland), Ruby Mace (Manchester City), Lucy Parry (Liverpool), Caitlin Smith (Clemson University), Laura Blindkilde Brown (Aston Villa), Grace Clinton (Everton), Lucia Kendall (Southampton FC Women), Mia Ross (Charlton Athletic), Maisie Symonds (Brighton & Hove Albion), Charlotte Wardlaw (Liverpool *), Aggie Beever-Jones (Bristol City *), Missy Goodwin (Leicester City), Freya Gregory (Leicester City *), Emily Murphy (University of North Carolina), Lucy Watson (Sheffield United).
