The Schoolboy squad have been selected from the best players across the country who have worked their way up to International level after representing their School and County teams. After three months of a rigorous trials process the coaching staff selected the squad of players you will see taking the field at Lincoln City FC on the 1st of March at 7PM.

The England U18 Schoolboys are the current reigning champions of the Centenary Shield after defeating the Republic of Ireland at Brighton and Hove Albion in a tense winner-takes-all championship decider. This year’s current crop of talented footballers will be looking to repeat the feat this year and retain the Shield.

After this International fixture the team will travel down to Plymouth Argyle Football Club for the 8th of March to play Northern Ireland at Home Park. They will then head across the border to play their away fixtures against Scotland (April 12th) and the Republic of Ireland (April 26th).
