England C Squad Named

England C manager Paul Fairclough

Manager Paul Fairclough has named his squad for the crucial International Challenge Trophy match with Belgium next week. After taking just one point from their opening two Group A games, a win is vital if the team are to stand a chance of reaching the semi-finals.

Sam Hatton is back in the C squad

There are three new faces in the squad; Ian Ormson of Stockport County, Aswad Thomas from Grimsby Town and Gateshead midfielder Josh Gilles. Fairclough has also recalled Sam Hatton of Grimsby Town. Hatton made his C debut in 2010 while at AFC Wimbledon, but has recently moved to Blundell Park and is therefore eligible again.

A win is crucial, but may not be enough, as an Italy victory over Russia in November would eliminate England anyway.

Here’s the squad in full, from the FA website. Head over to the site for the full story, along with an interview with Paul Fairclough.

Preston Edwards (Ebbsfleet United), Ian Ormson (Stockport County), Sam Hatton, Aswad Thomas (both Grimsby Town), Jamie Turley, Eddie Oshodi (both Forest Green Rovers). Simon Ainge (Guiseley), Lindon Meikle (Mansfield Town), Josh Gilles (Gateshead), Stephen Brogan (Guiseley), Keiron Forbes (Forest Green Rovers), James Vincent (Kidderminster Harriers), Kenny Davis (Braintree Town), Scott Spencer (Hyde), Andre Gray (Luton Town), Josh Wilson (Guiseley).

Following the match in Belgium, England head to Albania for the first time ever in October for a friendly.


About James Bartaby

Hey, I'm James and I'm relatively new to non-league football, having only taken in my first match in September 2011. Despite it being a 0-4 defeat for Hampton & Richmond Borough, I became a huge fan of the club and NL in general. So much so that they are now the first club that I mention when talking about which team I support! I just got massively disillusioned with top flight football in this country and the attitudes of the lawmakers and top clubs in general, and I wanted to start taking my son to see decent football. I am now the club's Deputy Press Officer, and loving every minute!
