Lois Fidler has been forced to make two changes to her England squad ahead of the upcoming UEFA European Women’s U17 Championship Finals.

Injury has robbed her of the services of Chelsea’s Jenna Legg and Aston Villa midfielder Sarah Mayling.

They have been replaced by Birmingham City’s Rebecca Lloyd and Chelsea forward Atlanta Primus, daughter of former Portsmouth defender Linvoy.

England kick-off the tournament against Italy at New Bucks Head, home of AFC Telford United on Tuesday 26 November. They then entertain Austria at Chesterfield’s Proact Stadium on Friday 29 November before completing the group stage against Portugal at Burton Albion on Monday 2 December.
