Four young Reds get England call-ups

Monday 20 May 2024 12:00

Manchester United have two representatives in the England squad for the Under-17 European Championship.

Young full-back Harry Amass and midfielder Jack Fletcher have been named in the 21-man group with Greg Lincoln's side eagerly anticipating the event in Cyprus.

Both Reds were influential during an outstanding season for our Under-18s, as we clinched the Premier League national title by beating Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, and lifted the Premier League Cup by overcoming Manchester City in the final.

Jack Fletcher proudly shows off the Under-18 Premier League trophy.

There are 16 teams in the tournament with England's group containing France, Portugal and Spain. 

Amass, Fletcher and co begin their campaign with a match against France in Larnaca on Tuesday (18:30 BST), before meeting Portugal on Friday (18:30 BST) and Spain next Monday (18:30 BST).

The final is due to be held on Wednesday 5 June.

Meanwhile, in the older age group, the Under-18s, two more Reds have received call-ups.

Elyh Harrison and Ethan Wheatley are in the England squad for the Tri-Nations Trophy.

Northern Ireland and Morocco are also involved in the competition, which takes place at St George's Park and gets under way on Wednesday.

Ethan Wheatley and Ely Harrison show off their awards.

Harrison received the club's Denzil Haroun trophy after being named Reserve-Team Player of the Year, while Wheatley was the Jimmy Murphy Young Player of the Year. The goalkeeper and striker were presented with their accolades at Old Trafford last Wednesday evening, before the senior team's win over Newcastle United in the Premier League.

Northern Ireland's squad includes Will Murdock, another member of our Under-18s group, as he is one of three goalkeepers in their selection.

Good luck to all the boys going away with their countries!
