Vixens Trio Receive England Call-Up

Bristol City Women trio Rosella Ayane, Jodie Brett and Millie Farrow have been named in England Women's Under-23 squad for this year’s Nordic tournament.

All three players are currently on loan in Bristool from Chelsea and will represent their country in three matches against Norway (June 2nd), Sweden (June 4th) and USA (June 7th) at the Lilleshall National Sports Centre in Shropshire.

Ayane and Farrow have played at Under-19 level for England while Brett captained the Lionesses’ Under-20 at the European Championships in Israel.

Head coach Mo Marley said: “The Nordics are a great opportunity for our players to get valuable experience of tournament football, which is hugely beneficial to their development.

“It will also be a chance for the players to test themselves against top level, established opposition in Norway, Sweden and USA and we’re looking forward to the challenge.”

Players selected for the Nordics will still be eligible for selection for the England Women’s senior squad for their matches against Serbia in June.
