ESFA England Schoolboys Squad 2016-17 Announced
Friday 13 January 2017By ESFA Office
Following last weekend’s final Boys’ U18 International trials at Lilleshall National Sports Centre, the ESFA are thrilled to be able to name this season’s England U18 Schoolboys Squad!
The final 32 Trialists took part in a weekend of training and friendly matches in front of selectors to allow the final 16 boys to be chosen to represent their country on behalf of the English Schools’ FA.
The boys underwent training with this year’s Team Management as well as playing two friendly matches against the RAF and the Navy within the picturesque setting of Lilleshall National Sports Centre. The 32 Trialists were split into teams to take on the two Armed Forces sides, which gave the boys their final opportunity to show ESFA selectors their skills in the hope of being chosen for the last 16.

The English Schools’ FA would like to thank and congratulate all the boys that have taken part in this season’s International trials and selection process. It is a great achievement even to be nominated to take part in the International trials and that alone speaks volumes for those boys that have taken part this season.
The ESFA would also like to thank all the U18 boys, their families and the ESFA staff and volunteers for the time and planning they have put into the International process this season.
