Mo Marley’s England u19s will play a double header against Norway at St George’s Park in preparation for the u19 elite round to be played in Sweden.
Goalkeeper Sian Rogers, defenders Chiara Ritchie-Williams and Leah Williamson, and forwards Evie Clarke and Chloe Kelly have been selected for the two upcoming games. The first game will be played behind closed door on the 24th of January while the second one will be played on the 26th of January with a kick-off time of 1400.
18-year-old Leah Williamson is a veteran of the u19 team; she has already taken part in two qualifying campaigns for the England u19s, but missed out on the final on both occasions. She missed the finals in Norway in 2013/14 as she was selected for the FIFA u20 World Cup in Canada. She also missed the 2014/15 finals in Israel as she was requested to stay with the Arsenal Ladies’ first team as the finals overlapped with the FA WSL.
