England U20s to kick-off the new season against the Netherlands at Shrewsbury Town FC

Wednesday 24 Jul 2019
Shrewsbury Town has been a regular venue for England games over recent seasons

England U20s will kick-off their season against the Netherlands in Shrewsbury this autumn.

The Young Lions will take on the Dutch at the Montgomery Waters Meadow Stadium on Thursday 5 September (7pm kick-off), before they head off to play Switzerland away for a second game the following week.

It’s the latest trip to Shropshire for the Young Lions, as the venue has played host to a number of England internationals in recent years, with the U17s the last team to play at the stadium – beating Russia 3-0 in October 2018.

And the U20s played a game against France there in February 2011 when Brian Eastick’s team lost 2-1 to a side featuring the likes of Antoine Griezmann and Alexandre Lacazette, with Marvin Sordell scoring England’s solitary strike on that occasion.

Tickets are on sale now for the game priced £5 for adults and U12s go for free. Concession (over-65s, under-18s and students) tickets are £1 while Charter Standard and group booking discounts apply.

Shrewsbury Town chief executive and company secretary Brian Caldwell said: “We are delighted to be hosting the England v Netherlands U20 international at the Montgomery Waters Meadow in September.

“Hopefully we can get a good crowd for this match as it will showcase the best U20 players from both countries.”

Tickets can be bought via Shrewsbury Town's online ticketing system, by calling 01743 273 943 or in person at the club ticket office.
