Ellery Balcombe joining up with England Under-20s

Goalkeeper included for games against Poland and Portugal

14 March 2019

Ellery Balcombe is the latest Brentford player to receive an international call-up after being selected for the England Under-20s.

The Young Lions face tests against Poland and Portugal later this month in the Euro Elite League. Paul Simpson's side begin with a game at St George's Park against Poland on Thursday 21 March, kick-off 2pm. They then fly out to Iberia for a game at the Estádio Municipal 25 Abril in Penafiel on Tuesday 26 March, kick-off 6pm local time.  

Goalkeeper Ellery, part of the Three Lions squad that won the 2017 Toulon Tournament, has earned two prior caps at Under-20 level to add to 12 at younger age groups. 

The 19-year-old is yet to make his senior debut for Brentford but was named on the bench for our recent games against Hull City and Sheffield Wednesday.
