England Women’s duo Fran Kirby and Gemma Davison visited Wycombe ahead of the Lionesses’ key Euro qualifier next week.

England will face Serbia at Adams Park on Saturday 4 June (5.30pm) as part of their UEFA Women’s Euros 2017 qualifying campaign.

Kirby and Davison first visited Cressex Community School where they watched pupils take part in a girls’ football session, before answering questions and signing autographs.

They then visited Adams Park to see the stadium ahead of the key qualifier.

Davison said: “Fran and I really enjoyed visiting the school and seeing how many girls enjoy playing football – they have some talented players there.

“As a player, and also a coach, it’s great to get the chance to encourage girls to play, and keep playing, football.

“We’re looking forward to meeting up in camp and beginning out preparations for the game.

“We know Serbia will be a tough match and we’re determined to get all three points in front of all of our supporters in Wycombe.”

Pupil Aaliyah Charles, 13, who took part in the session, said: “I loved playing football in front of Gemma and Fran and showing them some skills and what we’re capable.

“It was great to be able to ask them questions and find out how they became footballers and what it is like for them.  I love playing football, I have training tonight and I can’t wait to get there after today.”

After the match at Adams Park, England will travel to Stara Pazova in Serbia, for the reverse match which takes place on Tuesday 7 June (4pm BST KO).

The Lionesses are unbeaten after four games in their qualifying campaign, second in Group 7 to Belgium but with a game in hand.

Tickets for the match at Wycombe are still available priced £7.50 for adults and £3.50 for children. A family ticket priced £15 (two adults and two children) is available and group booking discounts apply.
