The England U18 Schoolboys will head to Stafford Town FC’s Evans Park on Saturday 25 January to play this year’s International friendly fixture against the U18 Australian Schoolboys.
The England squad will receive their official home kit, newly sponsored by Utilita, on Saturday morning at the ESFA’s Headquarters in Stafford ahead of the match and will have the opportunity to proudly wear the 3 Lions badge during the afternoon’s game, which is due to kick off at 2:15pm. As part of School Sport Australia’s UK and ROI tour, spanning January, the travelling team will visit Stafford Town this weekend, to take part in this exciting fixture for the second consecutive year.
The ESFA are delighted to announce that the full match will be streamed live via the ESFA’s YouTube Channel, ESFA TV – providing a fantastic viewing experience for supporters who are unable to travel, including those back in Australia.
In light of the devastating bush fires in Australia, the English Schools’ FA would like to invite supporters to make a donation to the Australian Red Cross in order to support their efforts in helping those affected by the fires.
