Young Lionesses U-21 training camp squad announced

England Women’s U-21 manager, Mo Marley.

Mo Marley recently named her squad for this month’s training camp and the squad, introduced for the current season, will be based in Warwick and train at St. George’s Park this week.

13 of the 22-player group represented England at the U-20 World Cup finals in Brittany and a handful of this squad will be invited to take part in senior team training as part of The FA’s approach to youth development and providing a pathway for talented youngsters.

Senior head coach Phil Neville, who awarded seven players their full international debuts in September’s World Cup qualifying match in Kazakhstan, said: “I’m looking forward to inviting a number of the U21 team into our senior squad training sessions during the international camp.

“It will give them an excellent experience and allow me to see at first-hand how much progress they’ve made in recent months.

“Providing young players with the opportunity to progress into the senior team is something that Mo Marley and I are very keen to encourage, so having the U21s on camp at the same time is a great opportunity for us to do just that.”
