Our very own Bailey Hall has been included in the England U18 Schoolboys’ squad for the upcoming Centenary Shield games.

Bailey currently plays for our U18’s who are managed by Colin Carruthers and his inclusion into the squad is another example of how our youth set up is thriving at the moment. It also shows that there are excellent opportunities for our players who are coming through the ranks at the club.

Bailey and his teammates will head to a preparatory training camp in February where they will have the opportunity to work with the ESFA coaching team and prepare for their competitive fixtures.

The squad’s first game for the School’s Association Football International Board’s (SAFIB) Centenary Shield competition will commence in Northern Ireland on March 25 at Portadown Football Club from 7pm.

The Squad will then play Scotland at Spennymoor Town FC on April 1 and play the Republic of Ireland at Eastleigh FC on April 8

We would like to express our pride in Bailey’s call up and wish him and the rest of the England boys all the best for the upcoming tournament.
