Big congratulations our Football Saving Lives advocate, Kerys Harrop, who has been called up for the England team for the first time. According to BBC Sport:
Coach Hope Powell said: “Kerys has done well with the under-23s and we have been monitoring her for a while.”
Harrop, 22, was a part of the Birmingham side that won their first FA Women’s Cup last season and was a member of the England squad that won the European Women’s U19 Championship in 2009.
[…] Powell added: “(Kerys) was with the under-23s in La Manga last year and I asked her to take part in a training session with the seniors and she did okay so this is another opportunity for me to have a look at her.
