I can't believe it - Kelly

Lloyd Kelly admits he's struggling to believe he has been called up by England Under-20s.

The defender has been named in the latest Young Lions squad for upcoming internationals with Holland and Switzerland.

It's a huge accolade for Academy product, who is still only 18.

Speaking exclusively to bcfc.co.uk, Kelly said: "The gaffer called me a couple of days ago to say I had been placed on standby for the squad, but I was officially told this morning that I'd received the full call-up.

"Honestly, I can't believe that I've been selected to be part of such a huge setup and now I'm just looking forward to meeting up with the squad.

"It's a huge thing being called up for England and I know it's going to be another amazing experience for my development."

Kelly made his senior debut in the Carabao Cup win over Plymouth Argyle earlier this month, before starting for the first time at Watford, providing an assist in the 3-2 win at Vicarage Road.

"The start to this season couldn't have gone any better for me," added the youngster, who joined the club's Academy at the age of 11.

"Being involved from the start of the season has been great, before making my full debut against Premier League opposition in the week.

"It's what I've been working towards all these years and now this call-up for England Under-20s is another huge thing for me."
