The England U15 Schoolgirls will attempt to continue their successful return to football this weekend after beating a strong Wales U15 side last month. They travel to Cochrane Park in Newcastle for a friendly game against their Scottish counterparts this Saturday 5th June. The match will kick off at 3pm and will be live-streamed on our YouTube channel ESFA TV with full match commentary. The girls will also be collecting their international caps after the game, a special moment for all involved.

The England U18 Schoolboys return to playing football for the first time since the pandemic put an end to their 2019/2020 season. They also travel north to Newcastle and play their fixture at Longbenton Sports Ground at Newcastle University. They face Harrogate Town FC U19’s in a friendly which kick’s off at 3pm on Sunday 6th June. The match will be live-streamed on our Youtube channel ESFA TV and the boys will also be collecting their international caps after the game am immensely proud moment for the boys and their families.

Both International squads saw an anti-climatic end to the 2019/2020 season with the pandemic cancelling both the Bob Doherty Cup for the girls and the Centenary shield for the boys. The squads had recently got back from their international tour of Eindhoven thanks to the guys at InspireSport and were ready to go for their end of season competitive fixtures. These friendly fixtures aim to bring these talented squads back together and give them the opportunity to end their international campaigns in style. We are extremely excited to see both squads pull on their England shirts sponsored by Utilita and remind us of what they can do.

England U15 Schoolgirls- International football is back!

The England U15 Schoolgirls travel to Wales this weekend for the much anticipated return to football for our International sides. They will face their Welsh counterparts in a friendly on Sunday 9th May

Before the football world ground to a halt last year, the England U15 Schoolgirls travelled to ROI to compete in the John Read Trophy against their Irish counterparts. They came away with a 2-1 win in what turned out to be their last fixture of the 19/20 season. The girls were then due to host Scotland, ROI, Northern Ireland and Wales at Lilleshall NSC in April for the Bob Docherty Tournament to end their international season, however these fixtures were unfortunately cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Following this anti-climatic end to the 2019/2020 International season for our England U15 Schoolgirls, they are finally getting back on the pitch this weekend as they travel to Colliers Park, Wrexham to play their welsh counterparts. The game is being played on Sunday 9th May with the match kicking off at 14:30.

Unfortunately due to the ongoing Covid-19 restrictions, no spectators will be able to attend. The game is also not going to be live-streamed on the ESFA Youtube channel but a recording of the match will be made available at a later date.
