England U16s are back in action early next month when they host Northern Ireland in their second Victory Shield game of the campaign.
Kenny Swain's team got off to a winning start two weeks ago, beating Wales 1-0 in Kidderminster, courtesy of a goal from Chelsea's Charlie Wakefield.
Swain has selected a different squad for this fixture, as he aims to see as many players in international action as possible this season.
He said: "Over the last four or five years, the number of players challenging for a place in the squad has increased and there are now more players threatening to get into the squad than ever before.
"This year, we’ve got around 50 players to look at where in the past it has been closer to 30.
"We need to challenge our best players more on the international stage and give more opportunities to the players who are really threatening to get into the squad."
As a result, Swain's group for this game is laregly made up of players receiving their first England call-up, although Chelsea's Jacob Maddox is back in the squad after being forced out of the Wales game through injury.
Northern Ireland will arrive on the south coast after starting their Victory Shield campaign with a 3-0 defeat at home to Scotland in Ballymena earlier this week.
Tickets for the game in Bournemouth cost £3 for adults and £1.50 for U16s and are available by calling 0844 576 1910 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
