Noel Blake has picked his first England U19 squad of the new campaign as they travel to Tallinn for a game with Estonia.
The Young Lions are preparing for the First Qualifying Round of the 2014 European Championship, which takes place in Slovenia in October.
There, they will face the host nation, Andorra and Switzerland with the top two of that group progressing into the Elite Qualifying Round next year.
And Blake has named a squad featuring some new faces on the international scene along with players who have previously featured for England in recent years.
Barnsley midfielder Paul Digby impressed Blake after breaking into the Tykes' first-team last season and has been rewarded with his first call-up for this game.
And Chelsea goalkeeper Mitchell Beeney and Norwich City midfielder Carlton Morris, who both starred in last season’s FA Youth Cup Final, receive their first England call-ups.
Both of their clubs are well-represented generally with Harry Toffolo and Josh Murphy also included from Youth Cup winners Norwich, along with Josh Aina, Lewis Baker and Ruben Loftus-Cheek from Chelsea.
The remainder of the group featured for either Blake’s U18 or U19 squads last season and will be keen to make a good impression this time.
The Euro Finals take place in Hungary next July and with places in the 2015 U20 World Cup also up for grabs from this year's competition, England will be keen to qualify.
