Aimee Palmer named in initial England Under-20 squad for FIFA World Cup

Aimee Palmer is having quite a week…

After being named in the latest England Under-18 squad, she has received another two call-ups from the Young Lionesses over the past few days.

Firstly, the 18-year-old midfielder has been placed on stand-by for the forthcoming England Under-20 camp next week.

The training camp, at St George’s Park, commences on Tuesday, June 19th and finishes on Saturday, June 23rd.

In addition, Palmer has been named in Mo Marley’s initial England Under-20 squad for the FIFA Women’s Under-20 World Cup.

The Under-20 World Cup will be staged in the Brittany region of France in August.

The Young Lionesses were drawn in Group B alongside Brazil, Mexico and holders North Korea.

The 35 strong playing group has vast experience throughout England’s youth teams and have participated in both UEFA Under-17 and Under-19 finals.

Furthermore, they have the added experience of reaching the quarter-finals of the FIFA Women’s Under-17 World Cup in 2016.

England qualified for the tournament for a fifth time by beating Scotland in a play-off last August.

Everyone at the club would like to congratulate Aimee on this fantastic achievement.
