Ellery Balcombe called up to England Under-18s squad

3 November 2016

Goalkeeper included for games against Poland and France later this month

Brentford B goalkeeper Ellery Balcombe has been called up to the England Under-18 squad for matches against Poland and France later this month. The Young Lions will take on the Poles at Stevenage FC on Thursday 10 November, before playing Les Bleus in Peterborough four days later, Monday 14 November. Neil Dewsnip's Young Lions will be looking to continue their fine form this term after victories over Italy and Israel in September, before losing one and winning one in Sweden last month.

Ellery was called up to the England squad on both those occasions and earned his first cap in the 1-0 defeat to Sweden last month. The goalkeeper, who came through the ranks at Jersey Road, has made eight appearances for Flemming Pedersen's side so far this season.

Tickets for both games cost just £3 for adults and £1.50 for concessions and are available via the Stevenage FC and Peterborough United ticket offices.

The squad in full:

Goalkeepers:  Ellery Balcombe (Brentford), Jake Turner (Bolton Wanderers)
Defenders: Tolaji Bola (Arsenal), Jaden Brown (Tottenham Hotspur), Jonathan Dinzeyi (Tottenham Hotspur), Morgan Feeney (Everton), Japhet Tanganga (Tottenham Hotspur)

Marcus McGuane (Arsenal), George Tanner (Manchester United), Tariq Uwakwe (Chelsea),
Forwards: Elliot Embleton (Sunderland), Niall Ennis (Wolverhampton Wanderers), George Hirst (Sheffield Wednesday), Jonathan Leko (West Bromwich Albion), Reiss Nelson (Arsenal)
