Any idea where the Under-17 England-Norway match is being played on August 23?   There is an England Under-17 page on the FA's web site, last updated June 1, no sign of this fixture.

As far as the british media and the FA are concerned the fixture doesn't exist.  I only found out about it from Norway, but there's no information about a venue.

As far as the FA is concerned the last Under-17 game was on October 24 2006.  Maybe they have played in the last 10 months, will someone who knows please tell the FA?  When will the FA start treating this sport seriously?

It is a behind closed doors training camp for all the games. I enjoyed the Easter 2006 tourney and made enquiries about this one but was told that it is strictly not for ordinary fans. The other dates mentioned in this thread are the male equivalent team.

OK, thanks, I guess they figure that once they have security, gate staff, litter collectors and all the rest, it wouldn't play for itself with a limited size of crowd

England's Under-17 girls are playing under a news blackout by the FA who decreed that today's match should be played behind closed doors.  But news has leaked out in the Norwegian media that England Under-17s beat Norway 1-0 in a training match that kicked off today at 12.30 on a pitch somewhere near London.

At the moment it has not been possible to find out where the match was played or any other details.

Carter brace seals points

UEFA European Women’s U17 Championship,
2nd Qualifying Round, Group 1
Tuesday 25 March   
England 4 Czech Republic 0
Rebecca Jane 3', Danielle Carter 49' 60', Jessica Holbrook 80'

Lois Fidler's side got off to the best possible start in their attempts to qualify for the inaugural UEFA European U17 Women's Championship
when they defeated the Czech Republic 4-0 on the outskirts of Prague.

Chelsea's Rebecca Jane got The Three Lions off to a perfect start with a goal in the third minute. Leyton Orient's Danielle Carter added a brace after half-time, and on the final whistle, Everton's Jessica Holbrook added a fourth.

In the other game in Group One, The Netherlands and Belgium drew 1-1, and it is the Belgian's who will next face England at AFK Libčice tomorrow afternoon.

The first UEFA European Women's U17 Championship final tournament will be held at the Colovray Stadium in Nyon, Switzerland with the teams competing for the trophy below. (image courtesy of uefa.com)

Located opposite UEFA headquarters, the venue will stage the semi-finals on Tuesday 20 May and the third-place match and final three days later.

The Colovray Stadium previously staged the 2004 men's U19 final, marking UEFA's golden jubilee. Due to exceptional circumstances, this is the first time the UEFA administration has acted as a final tournament host, and the top three finishers will qualify for the inaugural FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup in New Zealand from 28 October to 16 November.

England Squad:
Lauren Davey, Lucy Bronze, Rachel Daly, Jessica Holbrook, Gemma Bonner, Gilly Flaherty, Isobel Christiansen (Lucy Staniforth 73mins)
Jordan Nobbs, Toni Duggan, Danielle Carter (Sarah Wiltshire, 65mins), Rebecca Jane

Lions get physical

England 3 Belgium 1
Flaherty (19), Daly (40), Carter (80)

UEFA European Women’s U17 Championship,
2nd Qualifying Round, Group 1
Thursday 27 March

Lois Fidler's young Lions secured a second victory in two days to place them in pole position to reach the UEFA U17 European Championship Finals.

Starting the game against a Belgium side who had drawn their first Second Round qualifier on Tuesday, there was all to play for, and it took a while for England to get into their stride.

Lois spoke to TheFA.com just after the final whistle clearly tired by the game she had just seen.

"That was tough" she said. "Belgium were a very physical side and it took a while for us to work things out, relax and then start playing our football."

After a tense opening period, centre back Gilly Flaherty put England ahead from a set-piece, and immediately the young Lions became more effective.

With half-time looming, England got a crucial second goal, right back Rachel Daly going on a surging run from the back and finishing with aplomb.

"The start of the second half became more open," continued Lois. "Belgium had to chase the game.

"They pulled one back and then it was a real test of character for our young girls. Although it wasn't nice being on the bench after their goal, myself and the coaching staff were waiting to see how our girls would react, and they showed fantastic resilience.

"We had to weather a bit of pressure, but then Sarah Wiltshire came on, got down the wing and Danielle Carter scored her third goal in two games, which also are her first two games at this level."

With Holland defeating the Czech Republic 2-0 in the group's other game, England have maximum points, with the Dutch on four points, meaning a draw or victory will see England through.

"We'll recover tonight, I'll be looking at the video of today's game and then we'll be preparing for the final game" said Lois.

"No-one is getting carried away. We have a group of players who are very honest and want to learn, and the experiences they have had so far are a long way from Centre of Excellence football.

"We've done well so far and have to make sure that we continue to be professional as a group to give us the best chance of reaching the Championship semi finals in May."

England: Davey, Daly (Bronze, 80mins), Flaherty, Bonner, Marsh, Holbrook (Nobbs, 53mins), Christiansen, Duggan (c), Jane (Wiltshire, 76mins), Carter, Staniforth.

UEFA European Women’s U17 Championship,
2nd Qualifying Round, Group 1
Sunday 30 March

England 0 Holland 0

England held the Netherlands to a goalless draw in the Czech Republic today, to secure top spot in their qualifying group.

The result means England have claimed one of only four places at the inaugural UEFA Women's U17 Championship Finals, to be staged at the Colovray Stadium in Nyon, Switzerland. England will face France in the semi-finals on May 20th, with the final three days later.

The Dutch had needed a win to overhaul England, who were in a strong position having defeated both Belgium and the Czechs. The Netherlands finished second in the group, with the hosts taking third spot with a 3-1 victory over Belgium.

Lois Fidler's side joins France and Denmark in the finals, the Danes having qualified after a 2-0 defeat of Russia saw them top Group 4.

The final berth at Nyon will be decided in mid-April, when Germany hosts the Group 3 fixtures in Essen and Bottrop, with Poland, Sweden and Switzerland their opponents.

Five teams remained in contention in second qualifying round Groups 1 and 4 and in both cases the outcomes went to the wire.

England:
Lauren Davey, Gilly Flaherty, Isobel Christiansen, Gemma Bonner, Toni Duggan, Lucia Bronze, Rachel Daly (Sarah Wiltshire, 41mins), Jodi Jacobs, Jess Holbrook, Jordan Nobbs, Danielle Carter (Lucy Staniforth, 75mins)

Powell hails Hat Trick

Wednesday, 02 April 2008.

FIFA have confirmed that Lois Fidler's England U17s will play in the augural U17 Women's World Cup in New Zealand later this year.

After reaching the final four of the European U17 Championship at the weekend, Europe will now receive four places for the FIFA U17 World Cup, meaning that England qualify irrespective of their semi final against France next month.

The achievement marks an unprecedented period for England's women.

The senior side reached the World Cup in China for the first time in twelve years - bowing out at the Quarter Final stage to the USA - whilst the U19s reached their European Championship final in Iceland, finally losing to Germany in extra-time. That performance saw Mo Marley's side qualify for the FIFA Women's U20 World Cup in Chile, to be contested this November.

"The seniors qualifying for China and the focus that created around the women's game was a watershed moment," Head Coach Hope Powell told TheFA.com.

"Watching the tournament on television, the atmosphere at the grounds and the performances of our players, as well as the likes of Marta and Birgit Prinz was undoubtably inspiring and motivational for our younger international players.

"We've come a long way over the last ten years, and whilst a huge amount of credit has to go to the Coaching staff, including Mo Marley and Lois Fidler [this is Lois's first major tournament], I also have to acknowledge the commitment of players across the age groups, as they are constantly being challenged and stretched."

The success of the U17s means that between October and December, English interest will be focused on the U17 World Cup in New Zealand, followed almost immediately after by the U20 World Cup in Chile.

"During the past decade, the women's game has seen the introduction of Football Development Officers at County FA's and the strengthening of Centres of Excellence.

"For a lot of those people who aren't directly involved in working with one of the teams, they should take a great deal of pride too in the major contributory role they are playing in the advancement of the sport.

"The FA have continued to place ever bigger resources at our disposal and that too has been key to the progress we've been making at every level. No-one would say that we've 'made it', but our players are now challenging some of the undisputed superpowers of women's football in a way that would have been unthinkable in the early/mid nineties."

Ten of the first-ever FIFA U17 Women's World Cup participants are now known, with the European trio joining Korea DPR, Japan, Korea Republic, Colombia, Brazil, Paraguay and, of course, the Kiwi hosts in confirming their participation.

The European champions will be crowned on 25 May and, within a week, all eyes will turn to Wellington, which was confirmed last Thursday as the venue for New Zealand 2008's Official Draw.

Two games from glory
Wednesday, 14 May 2008.

UEFA European Women's U17 Championship, Semi Final
Tuesday 20 May, 18:00 (local time)
England v France
Colovray Stadium, Nyon, Switzerland

Forty UEFA member associations set out on the road to the UEFA European U17 Women's Championship final tournament, with two qualifying rounds played to decide the four final-round teams; Denmark, England, France and Germany.

Those four teams have now qualified for the first FIFA U17 Women's World Cup in New Zealand between 28 October and 16 November this year.

A major promotional drive is underway in order to attract a maximum number of spectators to the stadium. "We hope to profit from the enthusiasm generated by UEFA EURO 2008™ among the local population," Negroni explained. The EURO final round in Switzerland and Austria begins on 7 June, and nearby Geneva is one of the eight venues.

Training grounds have been found in the nearby town of Morges, with promotional work involving the sending of more than 400 letters to football clubs, schools and tourist offices in the region, as well as in neighbouring areas in France.

Posters and tournament programmes are also being prepared in abundance and entry to matches will be free of charge, with 5,000 tickets available for each encounter.

The winners of the final (kick-off 13:00 local time) will be presented with the trophy by Michel Platini in the stand immediately after the match. "We would urge as many people as possible to come along to the matches and create a great atmosphere for the players," said Negroni.

She's injured.
She was in the crowd yesterday at Shenley and the question was asked why she wasn’t out with the rest of the squad and she was quoted as saying “got run over by a car yesterday”. Not sure how true that was but she did have a wound to her knee. Anyway that’s probably the reason why she’s not been included in the latest England squad.

An article on her might appear on the Arsenal website sometime in the near future as Matt Fortune, the Arsenal.com reporter, was interviewing her by the side of the pitch during the match yesterday.

England's Under-17s are off to Estonia to play in the first round of qualification for their 2009 European Cup championship.

They are due to play Norway on September 24 at 15.00 in the Kuusalu Stadium in Finland.  Other teams in the same group are Estonia and Greece, so it's logical to think England will play those teams as well.

The FA web-site sometimes has information about the U-17 girls, so it might be worth keeping an eye on it in case they do mention this event.

Brazil v England
FIFA Women's U17 World Cup
12 midnight (GMT), Wednesday 29 October 2008
Wellington, New Zealand

A veteran of 44 international caps, England goalkeeper David James believes participation in the FIFA Women's U17 and U20 World Cups will be of huge benefit to the England teams of the future.

Lois Fidler's U17 side will begin their World Cup campaign against Brazil on Thursday, whilst Mo Marley is currently preparing her charges for the U20 World Cup in Chile in November.

Having been involved in the game for over 20 years, and having travelled to four separate tournaments with England, James knows how valuable tournament football can be in the development of young players.

"If these girls eventually get the opportunity to represent England at U23 or Senior level, then [the World Cup] will be a great experience for them," he said, "especially for the U17 girls; travelling to New Zealand will be a real eye-opener."

James is also of the opinion that two competitive World Cups will help with the development not only of individual nations, but the Women's game on a global scale.

"As much as you want to win, you don't want to waltz games 5-0 or 6-0.

"In one way, it'd be nice for England to be the dominant force but for the [Women's] game to develop properly, it needs a lot of nations to grow together. That's starting to occur now - and at a younger age group as well - which is good."

The recent success of Hope Powell's Senior side also gives James cause for optimism, as the Women's game in England continues to go from strength to strength.

"The Women's [2007] World Cup matches being shown on terrestrial television is unbelievable and to have that sort of coverage coupled with [participation in] the U17 and U20 World Cups shows that there is definite growth in that area.

So, will James be lending his support to Fidler's young side? "Oh yeah! I'm an England fan, so I'll be supporting the girls and hopefully we're going to do well."

I also noted referees are also up for it, foul play is not tolerated with red and yellow card dished as it should be.
Watch the France Paraguay highlight the Paraguaying player tries to take out the French girl misses her, the goal is scored and the player is off. Yellow card would likely in the premier league.

England beat Nigeria 1-0 goal by Holbrook.
The game stats are crazy:
Nigeria had 62% possession 11 corners to 0 , 20 shots to 2 and England wins it.
England need a point in the last game otherwise it could end up in a 3 way tie at 6 points.

Here are the ranking criteria :

a) most points
b) goal difference

Eurosport have cancelled their coverage of the England match in favour of 6 hours of biking (yawn . . ).  The England highlights might be on at 15.45 (provided the biking does not overrun?)  >:(

But on the FIFA web site it shows 20 shots and 11 corners to Nigeria versus England's 2 shots and no corners . . . . oops!

England beat Nigeria 1-0 goal by Holbrook.
The game stats are crazy:
Nigeria had 62% possession 11 corners to 0 , 20 shots to 2 and England wins it.
England need a point in the last game otherwise it could end up in a 3 way tie at 6 points.

English joy as Japan pay penalty
England's U-17 women are through to the last four at Japan's expense after triumphing in a quarter-final penalty shoot-out, the hurdle at which so many English teams have fallen at major tournaments.

Having scored 17 goals in three thrilling group games, the Japanese - New Zealand 2008's great entertainers - began this match as overwhelming favourites, and the opening exchanges looked to be adhering to the expected script.

Indeed, it took only eight minutes for the Young Nadeshiko to take a deserved lead, with Mana Iwabuchi slipping a delightful reverse pass through the English defence with the outside of her foot to release Chinatsu Kira. The Japan No9 obliged with a finish worthy of the assist, angling a right-foot shot just inside the far post.

England seemed unable to cope with their Asian opponents' skill and movement at this stage, but they rallied as half-time approached and went into the break boosted by a quite brilliant equaliser. Lucy Staniforth claimed it, punishing some hesitancy in the Japan defence by bursting dynamically through a crowded midfield area before smashing home a terrific, low right-foot shot from 20 yards.

Lois Fidler's side barely deserved this equaliser, but they improved massively in the second half, subduing Japan by holding a high defensive line and pressing the the Japanese midfielders and forwards at every opportunity. Yet with eight minutes reaming, Iwabuchi looked to have secured victory when she escaped the close marking of Lucy Bronze for the first time in the second half, cut inside and thumped the ball past Lauren Davey from close range.

That, however, was until Isobel Christiansen provided a bolt from the blue in injury time, finding the top left-hand corner from fully 40 yards to produce a surefire contender for goal of the tournament. Extra time failed to yield a winner, so the game went to penalties, where Davey and Gemma Bonner emerged as England's heroines, the former saving from Natsumi Kameoka and the latter firing home a superb winning kick.

Post by: Alan on November 09, 2008, 05:57:31 PM
On Eurosport someone said a while ago that youth teams tire easily and would be better off playing two 40-minute sessions on the pitch.  This idea was kicked out of sight today when Japan met England at the World Cup and the teams had hardly let the furious pace slip after 120 minutes.

The fitness and form of all the Under-17 teams at the tournament in New Zealand shows that women's football will be a force to reckon with in years to come.  England today showed their sticking power by refusing to buckle under strong pressure from the tournament's favourites.  An equaliser in stoppage time at the end of each half was enough to take England through to extra time and penalties.

From ten penalties that were on target, England's Lauren Davey snapped up the only one to be saved, and England now go through into exalted company in the semis with North Korea, USA and Germany - Asia, America and Europe's finest.  Apart from Davey England's heroes are led by 15-year-old skipper Jordan Nobbs, striker Danielle Carter, and not least today's scorers Lucy Staniforth with a rocket from 20 yards and Isobel Christiansen who let rip with a 40-yard shocker to stun Japan after 90+2 minutes.

Goal of the Tournament

"I've no idea where that one came from! I've never scored a goal like it." So said a disbelieving Isobel Christiansen, looking back on her remarkable strike in England's quarter-final with Japan.

By anyone's standards, it was a dream goal, finding the top left-hand corner from fully 40 yards. Christiansen's strike was also as vital as it was spectacular, restoring parity deep into injury time and paving the way for England to snatch victory in a dramatic penalty shoot-out.

The FIFA.com users certainly appreciated the quality and significance of the goal, with Christiansen coming out on top both in number of votes and in the average rating her strike received. As for the best of the rest, the tournament's adidas Silver Ball winner, Dzsenifer Marozsan, again had to make do with second place, her lobbed volley against Costa Rica beating Rafaelle's stunning free-kick to the runners-up spot.

It was a great strike - the timing in the match made it even more dramatic.....must keep an eye out ( and vote) for the winner in the current tournament. Toni Duggan may not win it but England age group teams have a flair for last minute drama ! The first French goal yesterday would be my contender so far, perfect cross and volley finish.

UEFA European Women's U17 Championship

Lois Fidler's U17 side suffered a second defeat inside 48 hours to end all hope of qualifying for the Finals of the UEFA European Women's U17 Championship.

An 18th-minute strike from Czech Republic's Lucie Vonkova sealed the victory and, coupled with a 1-0 loss to Spain on Monday England now know they will be unable to repeat their exploits from last year when they reached the latter stages of the Euros.

England now face Belgium in their final match on Friday looking to end this qualifying campaign on a high. Spain and Czech Republic will face each other on the same day, knowing the winner will join France in the Finals in June.

CREWE Alex girls Hollie Kelsh and Sherry McCue are earning their spurs with the England women's teams.

Midfielder McCue was promoted into the England under-17s squad in time for the European Championship in Italy, even though she is still only 15.

Kelsh, also aged 15, earned her call-up as a speedy winger, scoring in an under-15s game against Holland.

The duo are part of an impressive Crewe under-16s squad assembled this season by coach Aidan Callan.

The England under-17s side missed out on qualifying for the World finals in Trinidad and Tobago.

Despite beating Serbia 3-1, they lost to Holland (1-2) and drew with the hosts (0-0).

But McCue, who started off playing for boys' team Loggerhead Lions, admitted: "It's an honour to play for my country."

Kelsh, who attends Sandbach High School, said: "I'd love to play for England women's senior team. I've been to three training camps and two tours abroad with the under-15s."

Coach Callan added: "Hollie and Sherry have been with us since they were 10 and it is a real plus for us to get two girls into the England set-up."

Callan runs training sessions on Mondays and Wednesdays from 5.30pm to 7pm at the Shavington-based Crewe Alex Soccer Centre.

He plans to hold trials for next season and anyone interested in joining should call him on (07887) 562210.

The Crewe girls have joined Stoke centre of excellence pair Olivia Fergusson and Emily Horton in winning England recognition. Striker Fergusson and goalkeeper Horton trained with their country this week after impressing the England staff with their displays for Stoke's under-16 side.

Title: A solid start
Post by: Sylvain on May 18, 2010, 09:58:34 AM
The England Women’s U17 team got their Elite Qualifying Round campaign off to the perfect start with a 3-1 victory over Serbia. The top nation in each group will make it through to the European Finals, which will be staged in Switzerland in June.

Katie Wilkinson opened the scoring after just six minutes and added a second just before the break, though Ana Popov pulled a goal back for Serbia with a 61st-minute free-kick.

England created fewer opportunities after the restart with Serbia pushing for an equaliser, although substitute Freda Ayisi, on for Elizabeth Ince, did try an audacious effort which cannoned off the crossbar. However, Ayisi eventually got her name on the scoresheet late on, when she netted England’s third goal of the game.

Head Coach Lois Fidler told UEFA.com: "I think we deserved to win. We played against a team we had never faced, Serbia, and they played very physically. So, it was difficult for us, but we had the best opportunities and after scored two goals we tried to control the game. Serbia created a lot of pressure, but we played like a very good team."

Italy provide the opposition for England’s second Elite Round match on Saturday. The group’s other game finished Holland 2-0 Italy.

England
1 Mary Earps, 2 Lara Fay, 3 Alex Greenwood (15 Leigh-Anne Robe, 80+2), 4 Elizabeth Ince (18 Freda Ayisi, 74), 5 Hannah Short, 6 Kirsty Linnett (C), 7 Katie Wilkinson, 8 Bianca Bragg, 9 Danielle Carter, 10 Nikita Parris, 11 Lucy Gunton-Jones

Lois Fidler’s England Women’s U17 team battled gamely with ten players to secure a 0-0 draw with Italy in the second match of their Elite Qualifying Round campaign.

Nikita Parris received a red card just before the half-hour mark, but England might have been a goal to the good by that stage had a seemingly clear penalty decision been given in their favour.

The host nation dominated the first half, but found it harder to create chances against Fidler’s depleted but resolute young side. Nevertheless, Mary Earps produced a number of fine saves after the restart to keep the scores level and England can be pleased with the result, especially under the circumstances.

Holland defeated Serbia in the day’s other game meaning England must beat the Dutch on Tuesday to qualify for the European Finals.

England

The England Women’s U17 team slipped to a 2-1 defeat to Holland in the final match of their Elite Qualifying Round campaign, bringing to an end their hopes of European glory.

After beating Serbia 3-1 on Thursday and drawing 0-0 with Italy on Saturday, Lois Fidler’s side came into today’s fixture needing a victory to replace their opponents at the top of Group 1 and to subsequently book a place at the European Finals in Switzerland. Things were going exactly to plan when Katie Wilkinson gave England the lead in the 57th minute with her third goal in as many matches.

However, Dutch captain Kelly Zeeman equalised from the penalty spot just two minutes later and Sanne Schoenmakers scored the winner just three minutes from time.

As England will not participate in the summer's Euro Finals, this defeat also means they have failed to qualify for the next FIFA Women's U17 World Cup in Trinidad & Tobago.

Title: Lions forced to play waiting game
Post by: Sylvain on October 21, 2010, 12:10:45 PM
England drew 0-0 with Belgium in the final First Round Qualifier for the European Championship, but they are still in a strong position to progress to the Elite Round as one of the best runners-up.

Lois Fidler’s side, who beat Turkey 2-0 and Armenia 7-0 in the first two matches, dominated possession in the first half but only had a Meaghan Sargeant effort to show for their dominance.

Belgium seemed happy to soak up the pressure and hit the Three Lions on the counter attack but were decidedly better after the interval and created the better chances. However, neither side could break the deadlock and Belgium made it through to the final phase of qualifying for this season’s Euros, though England will be hopeful of joining them.

"All credit to the Belgians,” said Fidler after the game. “We let them back into it. They took the game to us in the second half and it was hold-your-breath time at the end. Belgium had the creativity that we lacked. We need to work on turning possession into goals.

http://thefa.com/England/womens-u17s/News/2010/Belgium

England are through to the Elite round
"We've put into practice what we've done on the training pitch," she continued. "We've shown great attitude and commitment. The girls are absolutely gutted; it's tough when you haven't lost a game or let in a goal yet you still aren't sure of going through."

Title: France too strong for Lions
Post by: sylvain on January 26, 2011, 02:00:54 PM
A dominant second-half performance from France saw them run out 5-0 victors over the England Women’s U17s in Epernay.

The two teams had gone in goalless at the break, with England ‘keeper Sophie Holland pulling off two fine stops in the first half.

However, there was very little she could do about the French onslaught after the restart and succumbed to Charlotte Landrieux’s strike after just 19 seconds. An injury to Harris, after an unfortunate slip, went unnoticed by the referee and France capitalised to make it 2-0. It was 3-0 just four minutes later as France demonstrated their clinical side.

They extended their lead in the 66th minute before rounding things off with a fifth from the penalty spot late on.

England Head Coach Lois Fidler could take some positives from the game, however, in that she handed four players their debut and she has to wait just two days before getting the chance to make amends; they play France again on Thursday.

England
1 Sophie Harris, 2 Aoife Mannion, 3 Paige Williams, 4 Jessica Round, 5 Lauren Haynes, 6 Leah Galton (C) (15 Meaghan Sargeant, 70), 7 Hollie Kelsh, 8 Holly Crosby, 9 Jessica Sigsworth, 10 Abbey-Leigh Stringer, 11 Beth Merrick (17 Anna Young, 84)

Title: U17 Women take on England in double-header
Post by: Sylvain on August 17, 2011, 12:36:27 PM
This week's friendlies are being staged at Welbeck College, taking place on Wednesday afternoon (4.30pm) and Friday morning (11am).

Kenny was assistant to Noel King when the Under-17s two years ago when the squad qualified through the two group stages of the UEFA series into the finals where they finished runners-up. They followed that up by reaching the World Cup quarter-finals in Trinidad and Tobago.

This season's contingent has a long road ahead to emulate that group, particularly with a difficult qualifying group to negotiate in October.

Still, Kenny has been pleased with their progress to date and believes this trip will help greatly prepare his squad for the rigours ahead in the competitive series.

Kenny said: "This is a vital week for us in terms of preparing for the upcoming UEFA qualifying campaign.

"We plan to arrange a final training camp for next month but these two matches against England will tell us a lot as to what level we're at.

"Our squad is changing all the time. We've brought five new players into the panel from the last get-together and they'll all get their chance this week."

Two players that shone at last month's Gaynor Cup representative tournament, Lauren Bowles (Strand Celtic) and Sarah Rowe (Ballina Town), have won their first call-ups. Four American-born players, who qualify through parentage, are also included.

The standout player at the Gaynor Cup, World Cup panellist from two seasons ago Claire Shine (pictured on front-page slideshow), is part of the Ireland squad in England this week.

Kenny added: "There's plenty lot of talented players in this squad and they will face two good tests in the friendly matches. England would be a number one seed in qualification groups and are always there or thereabouts at every level of the Women's game when it comes to the final stages of UEFA competition."
 

REPUBLIC OF IRELAND U-17 WOMEN'S SQUAD:
Jill Maloney - Atlanta Fire, Courtney Brosnan - PDA, Nicole Cranny - St. Joseph's FC, Lauren Dwyer - St. Fiacc's FC, Annie Monaghan - Colchester USA, Shauna Newman - Raheny United, Mary Fitzpatrick - Atlanta Fire, Ciara Rossiter - Forth Celtic, Ciara O'Connell - Wilton United, Ciara Cormican - Colga, Carys Johnson - Kilmallock United, Lauren Bowles - Strand Celtic, Chloe Mustaki - St. Joseph's, Caroline Healy - Mount Merrion YFC, Katie McCabe - Raheny United, Sarah Rowe - Ballina Town, Amber Barrett - Lagan Harps, Michelle Farrell - Longford Town, Jenny Ferrari - St. Joseph's, Clare Shine - Douglas Hall, Fiona Bennett - Curracloe United, Olivia Dawson - Killarney Celtic, Amy O'Connor - Wilton United.

A draw could be enough should Israel beat Northen Ireland.
A draw with Northern Ireland finishing third would mean 4 points and 2-1 + last game goals for the 4 runner-up places.
A defeat and it would need exceptional circumstances to qualify as one the 4 best runners up.

Young Lionesses hit for four

After securing their place in the Second Qualifying Round of the UEFA European Women's U17 Championship with three wins from three, England have been taken to Denmark by their Head Coach, Lois Fidler, for two matches in three days.

Unfortunately for England, though, Denmark ran out 4-1 winners in the first game. They were 2-0 up inside eight minutes, although Paige Williams did pull a goal back for the Young Lionesses four minutes before the break. But two more Danish goals in the second half put paid to the English comeback.

However, Fidler's young side will get the chance to avenge this result on Sunday afternoon.

Lionesses slip to defeat in Vejen

25th-minute goal seals win for Denmark.

Lois Fidler’s England Women’s U17 team were forced to brave the elements in their second international match inside three days.

They were beaten 4-1 by Denmark on Friday afternoon and the Danes again provided the opposition on Sunday.

Unfortunately for England, amid torrential rain and gale force winds, a 25th-minute goal gave the hosts another victory.

The next challenge for Fidler’s young team is the Elite Qualifying Round of the UEFA European Women’s U17 Championship, which takes place next spring.

Qualifiers result so far

England Iceland 0-1
England Belgium 1-0

Final game
England Switzerland and Iceland Belgium  18th of April

1. Switzerland 4 pts
2. Iceland 3 pts
3. England 3 pts

England need to win against Switzerland AND Iceland not to beat Belgium to qualify.
If both teams win Iceland go through as they have a better head to head record.

Norway's U-16s overturned an early deficit to record a 2-1 friendly victory.

Natasha Flint gave England U-17s a 9th-minute lead over Norway U-16s at the University of Warwick on Tuesday morning but the visitors hit back with two second half goals.

Marie Markussen equalised in the 62nd minute and Tonje Danielsen netted the winner just 6 minutes later.

Title: England stages winter Women's U17 finals
Post by: Sylvain on January 03, 2013, 12:51:14 PM
The first eight-team Women's U17 final tournament, hosted by England, will be held from 26 November until 8 December 2013, the early date due to the FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup.

Four venues in England will stage the first eight-team UEFA European Women's Under-17 Championship from 26 November until 8 December 2013, the dates having been confirmed by the UEFA Executive Committee meeting in Lausanne.

Since the inaugural edition, the tournament has concluded with a four-team knockout event at the Colovray Stadium opposite UEFA's Swiss headquarters in Nyon, but this season's finals – from 25 to 28 June – will be the last under that format as the size of the showpiece doubles in line with the other European youth competitions. England were awarded the 2013/14 edition earlier this year with Iceland and Belarus to stage subsequent tournaments.

That first event will be played end the end of the English Football Association (FA)'s 150th anniversary year. England qualify automatically as hosts and the draw for the first of two qualifying rounds will be held on 20 November involving 40 teams.

The matches will be played between 1 and 7 July or from 29 July to 11 August with ten group winners, ten runners-up and the third-place team with the best record against the top two in their section joining top seeds France, Germany and Spain for the second qualifying round between 20 September and 20 October to define the seven teams that join England. It will also act as a qualifier for the 2014 FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup in Costa Rica staged from 15 March to 5 April of that year, hence the European competition moving for this edition from a standard summer date.

Following on from staging the women's Olympic tournament this year, the FA's 2013 celebrations will also include the UEFA Women's Champions League final at Stamford Bridge on 23 May. England previously staged UEFA Women's EURO 2005 which opened with the current tournament record crowd of 29,092 to watch the hosts play Finland at the City of Manchester Stadium.

Lois Fidler’s England Women’s U17 side will continue their preparations for the European Championship by taking on USA in Hinckley later this month.

The Euro Finals will be staged in England in November and December and with the Young Lions qualifying as hosts they have been getting accustomed to tournament football by recently taking part in tournaments in Spain and Iceland.

Fidler is confident USA will provide her charges with a different test and is certain the players will benefit from further exposure to international football.

She said: “The two tournaments we’ve been to have allowed me to look at a large, competitive pool of players.

“The girls have had a lot of exposure to tournament football recently and I expect this game to be a totally different challenge so I’m sure they will learn a lot from it.

“It’s a great game to have in place as we continue to work towards the Euros.”

Title: U.S. U-17 WNT Routs England 6-0 as Mallory Pugh Scores Twice
Post by: Sylvain on August 27, 2013, 11:02:41 AM
HINCKLEY, England (August 25, 2013) – The U.S. Under-17 Women’s National Team scored three times in each half to rout their counterparts from England 6-0 in the first of two matches between the teams.

The USA went ahead just three minutes into the game when Madison Haley slipped a pass behind the England defense to Mallory Pugh who rolled her left-footed shot across the face of the goal and just inside the right post from 12 yards out.

Taylor Racioppi doubled the lead in the 12th minute after some tough defense from Haley at the top of the England penalty area forced a turnover. Racioppi picked up the loose ball, took a touch into the middle, and struck a 23-yard shot on the ground into the lower right corner past diving England ‘keeper Kristie Levell.

Pugh got her brace and put the USA ahead 3-0 inside of 23 minutes after Racioppi threaded a pass through the England defense. The U.S. striker ran onto the pass and buried her shot into the roof of the net from 16 yards out.

With the match very much in hand (the USA would end up out-shooting England 18-2), substitute Michelle Xiao put the USA up 4-0 just three minutes into the second half on a nice individual effort. After a corner kick from the right side was half-cleared, Natalie Jacobs ran the ball down and touched it to Xiao on the right wing. Xiao then took off on a powerful and elusive dribble, riding a tackle to get around her defender to the end line, cut back inside the corner of the six-yard box and rifled a left-footed shot into the net at the near post.

Dorian Bailey put the USA up 5-0 in the 69th minute after a fantastic cross from Xiao, who had gotten end line after beating a defender down the left wing. Bailey crashed the far post the blast her volley into the roof of the net from close range.

The USA’s youngest player tallied the final goal just three minutes later as 14-year-old Frankie Tagliaferri, who is also a member of the USA’s Under-15 Girls’ National Team player pool, picked off a pass about 10 years into the England half and dribbled all the way to the top of the penalty area. Her first shot was blocked, but she was first to the deflection and smacked a left-footed shot on the ground into the lower right corner from 17 yards out for the final margin.

The two teams will meet again on Aug. 28.

The USA is preparing for qualifying for the 2014 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup. Players born on or after Jan. 1, 1997, are age-eligible for that tournament.

Lois Fidler has lined up a match against Wales as she continues to prepare her England side for the U17 Euros.

The tournament will be held in the Midlands in November and December to help mark the end of The FA’s 150th year. It is the first time this European Championship has been staged outside of Switzerland.

The Young Lions were beaten by a strong USA side in August, just a month after competing in the Nordic Tournament in Iceland.

Fidler will be using this match to help finalise her plans for the Euro Finals.

She said: “It’s always exciting when you come up against a Home Nation and I think Wales will give us a good test just a few weeks out from the tournament.

“It gives the players another chance to impress and familiarise themselves with international football before the real business gets under way.”

The draw for the Finals will take place in Burton on Thursday 24 October. Eight teams will be drawn into two groups of four.

The two finalists and the winners of the third-place play-off will qualify for next summer’s U17 World Cup in Costa Rica.

England 5-0 Wales
A Women’s U17 International
12.30pm, Monday 28 October 2013
New Bucks Head Stadium, AFC Telford United

Lois Fidler's England Women's U17 team returned to winning ways in emphatic style after putting five goals past Wales at AFC Telford's New Bucks Head Stadium.

With a place at next month's UEFA Championship Finals secured by virtue of their status as hosts, England were in a confident mood on Monday and had effectively ended the tie as a contest inside the opening half an hour.

England's lost 6-0 in their last outing, at the hands of USA, but memories of that defeat were forgetten quickly as Chloe Kelly broke the deadlock within 120 seconds, guiding the ball into the bottom corner with a neat finish.

Wales goalkeeper Charlotte Edmunds was left picking the ball out of her net once more just 14 minutes later as Sarah Mayling made the most of good work from captain Leah Williamson and Evie Clarke to double the hosts' advantage.

England dominated possession, pinning the visitors back into their own half, with Williamson impressing with her varied range of passing.

And it was no surprise when England netted again after 27 minutes as Williamson rose perfectly to meet Mayling's flighted corner-kick and head the ball beyond Edmunds.

It could have been four shortly after the restart, but winger Clarke saw her effort land inches wide of the post following a glorious team move that had started at the feet of goalkeeper Kirstie Levell.

A fourth did arrive soon after, however, with Jenna Legg converting from the penalty spot after she was felled inside the box.

England weren't finished though, and Williamson grabbed her second of the match with another header in the closing stages.

England
Levell (Rogers, 60), Hassall (Cowley, 60), George, Williamson (C), Purfield (Lloyd, 60), Rouse (Primus, 60), Legg, Mayling, Clarke (Wilkinson, 70), Plumptre, Kelly.
Substitutes not used Williams, Stamp, Porter, Hartley.

Wales
Edmunds, Ridings, Pentney (Stevens, 18), Dodge (C) (Tinman, 57) (Evans, 65), Fuller, Nolan, Estcourt, Pritchard, Mitchell, Davies, Hosford.

Consistent as always, is our Lois, play everyone out of position in an inflexible formation and they lose. Of course theyll all be in for a major rollocking now, never her fault.

I am surprised to see Leah who is excellent in midfield with our reserves at CB for England.  ???

I agree with you Sylvain .... she was excellent against Bristol 2 weeks ago in centre midfield

Not having seen many of these U17s play and going on what raefil says, is this something that Fidler seems to do a lot? What's the reasons and thoughts behind why she does this? Never seen her work/coach, any good?

England coaches like to move players from their normal club position, at a young age it is useful to be learn to play in multiple positions. 
She has had  some good result in the past WC 2008 for example.

 :D Are you seriously suggesting that a European final's in is the place to experiment?
Went yesterday and the two Centre backs played very well in all fairness to them Arsenal and Man U I think but why oh why is the most creative player in the squad and probably the most threating holding midfield?! (Stop stifling creativity!)

Struck me that the setup was for a point when all 3 were there for the taking if England wanted them. Just have to say that all the partners involved in organising a fantastic atmosphere and setup at AFC Telford yesterday should be proud. Over 2,000 in attendance and the FA fanzone was packed at times- Well done to the FA for organising a great event.

Think at the age and stage in their development a final position should be nailed down at this time, would vary positions until around 14-15 but then needs to settle on one and specify roles and learn.

If we are not nailed down for a European finals and the opportunity to qualify for a World cup when will we be?

Watched the Japan game , English football is light years away from what is required to compete at international level and yes the COE system is poor as is the general level of womens football.
sadly not much will change thank heavens for dual nationality.

Recorded it and just watched it - Japan by far the better team but did England actually try and adapt their tactics to the opposition ?   Japan were clearly faster and sharper - the English girls looked stronger but (and I know TV can be deceptive) bulky and lacking in agility.   Maybe we could have tried to play to our strengths a bit more.   I know we are talking youth football here and maybe they want to stick to a way of playing they think is best for the development of the players but surely at the elite level you also have to learn how to adapt to win games.

Obviously need to work on their fitness.

Post by: sylvain on May 11, 2017, 10:40:09 AM
Some players certainly looked tired in the Norway game. I also think the coach got it wrong with the 4-2-4 system  that left the two central midfielder very open. They made a double substitution at half-time but the final ball was not there. Fitness was part of the problem, creativity was not great, saying the French team has had many players low on energy in their third game as well.

We were surprised to hear one of the players in a local derby last night was an England u17 given she wasn't sleek to be polite........... whilst I wouldn't expect players to be skinny, you would expect them to be toned and able to complete a full match without looking jaded? So that was interesting given earlier comments about fitness. From my reckoning the u17s are missing some very able players who coaches haven't recommended... back to my fave topic of favouritism?. I understand John Griffiths is open to suggestions, so he probably needs to do some scouting there are some excellent u17s out there that have slipped under the radar and u16s and u15s etc etc .........

England is always going to be at a disadvantage against youth national sides that train more regularly (some of them, such as Germany, I've heard even live together).  Our national youth squads don't train often enough so they never really get the chance to gel as a team.
