The England U15 Schoolgirls’ squad kick off their international season this weekend with their first friendly of the season against ISFA U15 Girls. The ESFA squad, who have been selected from the best footballers that schools football has to offer, travel to Charterhouse School, Surrey on Sunday (12th January) for a 1pm KO.
Before the game, the 18 girls will be presented with their England Kit courtesy of ESFA official kit suppliers, Pendle in a formal presentation event, celebrating the girls’ achievement for making the squad and officially kickstarting their international season.
Trials for the ESFA U15 England Schoolgirls’ began back in October 2019, where players nominated by their counties were whittled down through two stages of regional trials until the official squad was chosen after final trials took place at Stafford Town FC in December.
The friendly this weekend is the first step of the preparation process which includes preparatory training in Eindhoven courtesy of ESFA partners inspiresport as well as other friendly fixtures which are still to be confirmed. In April, the girls play their competitive games in the Bob Docherty Cup against the other home nations.
