You'd have thought they'd have put it in the article, must admit I missed the letters above the badge!  I still think it's a bit ironic  they are bigging it up but fail to mention the local sfa haven't bothered with girls representative teams this year.

There are a lot of English Schools (ESFA) national  trials at the moment which gets very confusing to people as they don't understand the difference and many believe they are trialing for the England FA U15's Team.

The ESFA England U15 squad will have one training session in Netherlands and then play one tournament in Spain next year against Scotland, Wales and Ireland. Its a good stepping stone but I don't know how much notice the FA take of it as not all the best players will trial for it.

The Final selection is 9th December at Stafford Town FC where the 4 regions, 16 players each, will play off to select one squad.

It does give many girls another platform to be seen and should rightly be consider a great honour to get a cap for English Schools.

The FA take note by no longer allowing girls on the national team list (not sure if that includes the long list or just the short list of national team players) to trial for England Schools because of the potential for overuse/injury and clashes with dates.

Went to England v France today. Game not advertised at all, despite being open to the public. Still 120 spectators, not bad at all.

Typical France v England game, two teams with opposite style makes it very entertaining.
