Goalkeeper included in squad for matches next month
Brentford B Team goalkeeper Ellery Balcombe has been called up to the England Under-18 squad. The young stopper will be with the national side for two matches early next month. England are playing Italy and Israel in a three-team tournament taking place in the North West at the start of September. Ellery will link up with the national squad on Sunday, 28 August, ahead of the two matches.
Ellery is one of three goalkeepers named in the squad for the tournament. England will play Italy on Thursday 1 September in a match that will be played at Fleetwood FC and kick-off at 7pm. They will then play Israel on Monday 5 September at Morecambe FC. That match will also kick-off at 7pm. Ellery is currently with Brentford’s B Team in Spain for their matches against Valencia and Villarreal this week.
