Southampton FC Women and Girls’ duo Ella Morris and Alisha Ware have both been named in the latest England Under-17s squad.

After the tournament’s conclusion, the following players have also been selected to attend the FA’s Youth Development Phase Camp in July: Ellie Head, Freya Jupp, Lucia Kendall, Grace Palmer, Hermione Cull, Milly Mott, Matilda Thomas, while Kelci-Rose Bowers is on standby.

The FA are also holding an additional training camp at Warwick University, with Kelci-Rose Bowers called-up and Megan Collett and Pukpinya Surin on standby.
