Harriers are proud to announce that Ed Williams is one of just two Step 2 players to be named in the latest England C squad.
England C are back in action in October, hosting an Estonia U23s team at Leyton Orient’s Breyer Group Stadium. Three Lions C manager Paul Fairclough has selected a 16-man squad for the game, which will take place at the east London venue on Wednesday 10 October (7.45pm).
It’s a new-look group too, with the squad evolving since their last international against Wales earlier this year in March and picked from players aged 23 and under who represent clubs from the National League and below, effectively England’s non-League XI.
Williams joins FC United’s Kurt Willoughby in being the only Step 2 players to named in what is otherwise an all-National League line-up.
For both Marvin Ekpiteta and Josh Koroma, it will be a match on familiar territory as they play their football with National League high-fliers Orient.
And goalkeeper Ryan Huddart of Boreham Wood is no stranger to international development football, having previously featured for England at U16 and U17 level when he was on the books of Arsenal.
Chesterfield defender Laurence Maguire can always call on some advice from his brother ahead of the squad’s meet-up, with his elder sibling being none other than England and Leicester City’s Harry.
Tickets for the game are available from Wednesday 26 September priced at just £5 for adults and FREE for U18s and over 65s.
Goalkeepers: Ryan Huddart (Boreham Wood), Ben Killip (Braintree Town)
Defenders: Jerome Binnom-Williams (Chesterfield FC), Marvin Ekpiteta (Leyton Orient), Laurence Maguire (Chesterfield), Jon Mellish (Gateshead), Robbie Tinkler (Gateshead)
Midfielders: Ryan Croasdale (AFC Fylde), Wesley Fonguck (Barnet), James Hardy (AFC Flyde), Joshua Taylor (Sutton United), Edward Williams (Kidderminster Harriers)
Forwards: Luke James (Hartlepool United), Josh Koroma (Leyton Orient), Kurt Willoughby (FC United of Manchester), Thomas Wright (Sutton United)
