Today ( Friday 3 April) is the day the England U18 Schoolboys were due to be kicking off the first home leg of the 2019/2020 Centenary Shield campaign v their Republic of Ireland Counterparts. However due to the cancellation of the remainder of the 2019/2020 International season – See here– this game will unfortunately not be going ahead.
However, we are delighted to announce that you can now download the full match day programme for FREE via the link below.
We would like to take this time to thank all the staff at Spennymoor Town for their professionalism and communication throughout the organisation of this fixture. The Association were thoroughly looking forward to visiting the Brewery field, which we know would have been a great venue for this prestigious international fixture.
We would also like to thank all of our international sponsors for supporting the International program, although this season hasn’t come to the end we had expected, it has still been a highly successful and enjoyable season for the England Schoolboys!
Finally, thank you to all the players, coaching staff and parents for their commitment to making this international season such a success. As mentioned in our previous statement, the ESFA is hopeful that their may be an opportunity to host an event with all of this seasons international players to celebrate their achievements and we will keep you informed as and when the possibility arises.
