Brent Hills has urged his young squad to impress in next month's training camp
England Women’s Under-23 training camp
St. George’s Park
Sunday 11 November – Thursday 15 November 2012
Twenty-nine budding England Women’s internationals will get the chance to impress the Three Lions’ assistant manager in November.
Brent Hills will take a large pool of Under-23 players to St. George’s Park for a five-day training camp and he will remind them of the opportunities that lie ahead.
He said: “These players are potentially just one step away from the senior team so it’s vital to get them together in an international environment, especially because there are no UEFA or FIFA tournaments at this level.
“But this is also a chance for all the players to put themselves in the shop window, be that for a central contract, for a place at Euro 2013 and looking a bit further down the line, maybe the World Cup in 2015 as well.”
Most of Hills’s squad have plenty of international experience at youth level and eleven of them won the U19 Euros in 2009.
Birmingham midfielder Jade Moore has already earned four caps for the senior team, while Chelsea defender Gemma Bonner and Arsenal youngster Jordan Nobbs have both been called into Hope Powell’s side in the past.
