Massive congratulations to our over 60's player Derek Thorp who received the news this weekend that after the recent trials at Solihull Football Centre he has made the England team!

Derek and 19 others have been picked to make up the first squad and shadow team representing England to train for next year’s Euros. Four trials were held over the UK in the last few months where over 130 trialists were seen by Manager Stuart Langworthy and his team. With just over 2 weeks to go, Langworthys initial job is to prepare the guys for their first ever International friendly against Italy on 13th May at Brighton and Hove, Amex Stadium.
