Ladies star named in England squad.

Sunderland WFC striker Beth Mead has been selected for the final England under-19 training camp at the end of July.

England coach Mo Marley has named a 24-player squad ahead of the UEFA European Women’s under-19 Championship held in August in Wales.

Marley will have to narrow that squad down to 18 players prior to the tournament in Wales and Mead will hope to make the cut.

The 18-year old finished this season as top scorer in the FA Women’s Premier League for the second season in succession and she has been capped six times at England under-19 level. 

She will join the rest of the squad at St George’s Park on the 30 and 31 July.

Beth’s Sunderland teammate Keira Ramshaw is on standby.
