Congratulations to Marcus and Malachi – selected for England U15 team

England Under 15 teams announced for Copenhagen 2017

After a successful camp, England U15 squads are now ready to compete at this year’s Copenhagen Invitational 2017. The teams spent a weekend in Sheffield being put through their paces and highlighting their skills to the coaching staff who were looking to select a roster of 12. The teams will travel out on Thursday 15th June and return on Sunday 18th June.

The England Under 15 Boys will be looking to defend the title which they won last year and start their defence with a tough match up against Malbas (Sweden) on Thursday 15th June before moving on to play the rest of their group, Denmark (red) and Iceland (blue), on Friday and Saturday.

Under 15 Boy’s Head Coach, Manuel Pena Garces, felt the players gave everything this weekend at camp:

“This is a special group of young players that have been working hard since the start of the U15 programme. Around 20 players started this journey and showed great motivation and effort towards a common goal: their development to be better players.
