Brian Eastick has confirmed his 18-man squad to take on Switzerland on 14 November, with the core of the team remaining from their recent trip to Austria for the UEFA Preparatory Tournament.
Liverpool's FA Youth Cup winning trio of Paul Anderson and Craig Lindfield, who scored three goals between them against Austria, and Adam Hammill retain their places as does Derby County's Giles Barnes.
Queen's Park Rangers' forward Ray Jones also returns to the squad after missing the visit to Austria through injury and Eastick is keen to take another look at many of the players who accquited themselves well against Spain and Italy.
Eastick said: "The nucleus of the squad is pretty much the same as that which we took to Austria because the important thing we need to look at is continuity of our preparation.
"The draw for the UEFA European U19 Championship takes place next month and that is what these games are preparing the players for. We have made a minimal number of changes to the squad and I think that will help the players continue the progress.
"We have brought back Ray Jones of QPR who was in the squad earlier this season but unfortunately had to withdraw through injury. It’s important for us to have another look at him.
"James Vaughn is also worth a mention despite not being in this squad. He is recovering from a long term injury and I went to watch him at Morecambe last week in a reserve game. The view is that right now he needs a few more games - but he is one we are keeping an eye on.
"We are hoping to build on the work we have done in the past few months with the players and put on a strong performance against Switzerland."
