Head Coach Mo Marley will be assisted by England defender Casey Stoney next week as she calls together two squads of U19 players in preparation for April’s European qualifiers.

The first group of Young Lions will congregate at St. George’s Park for a training camp between 28-29 January and the second group will meet up between 29-31 January.

England take on Denmark (on 5 April), Serbia (7 April) and Finland (10 April) in the Euro qualifiers, with the top-placed team in Group 6 qualifying for this summer’s Finals which will be staged in Norway.

Stoney said: "This is a fantastic opportunity for me to learn from a great coach like Mo.

"I’ve got my UEFA B Licence and I’d like to do my A Licence one day, so spending a week with Mo and some of the country’s best young players will be brilliant for my development.

"Hopefully the girls will pick up one or two things for me. They’ve got some big games coming up so this is an important training camp."

England were silver medallists at last season’s Euros, losing to France after extra-time in the final.
