Kelly earns England Under-20s call-up

Lloyd Kelly has been called up by England Under-20s for the first time.

The defender, who joined the club's Academy at the age of 11, has been selected for the upcoming international friendlies against Holland and Switzerland.

Kelly, who is still only 18, made his senior debut for City as a substitute in the 5-0 win over Plymouth Argyle earlier this month, before starting for the first time against Watford, setting up Bobby Reid's goal in the 3-2 success.

The Young Lions host Holland at Telford's New Bucks Stadium on Thursday, August 31st before heading out to face the Swiss on Monday, September 4th.

Head coach Lee Johnson said: "I'm absolutely buzzing for Lloyd. This will be a great experience for him and one he will relish.

"It's also fantastic recognition for our Academy setup and everyone deserves huge credit on the back of Lloyd's call-up."

Academy manager Gary Probert said: "This call-up is a testament to Lloyd's hard work and dedication since joining the Academy.

"Congratulations to Lloyd and I'm sure he will go and impress on international duty.

"It's also a tremendous credit to all the hard work put in by the staff at our Academy, who will all take great pride in this call-up for Lloyd."
