City Women trio selected for England Under-19

Young Lionesses head coach Rehanne Skinner has named her squad for the final round of the UEFA Women's Under-19 Championship qualifiers.

The Young Lionesses will take on Israel on Tuesday, April 3rd, host nation Slovakia on Friday, April 6th and Germany Monday, April 9th, with the top-placed nation in the group making it through to the finals in July.

Seventeen of the squad helped England pick up victories over Czech Republic and France in La Manga earlier this month with Grace Smith, Aimee Palmer and Jessie Jones added to the group.

England made it to the elite qualifying round by defeating Kazakhstan, Wales and Slovenia in a round-robin group last September.

This year’s finals will take place in Switzerland.
