TAUNTON footballer Emily Syme has been named in the England squad which will take part in the Uefa Women's Under-19 Championship this month - and she has a new club for the 2019/20 season.

Midfielder Syme is one of 20 players selected by England boss Rehanne Skinner, having helped the side win all six of their qualifying matches - against Malta, Croatia, Slovakia, Turkey, Sweden and Italy.

They scored 34 goals without reply in those matches, with Syme receiving the player of the match award against Turkey, having scored twice and assisted a further three goals.

Syme and co now head to Scotland for the Euro finals, which sees them drawn in Group B alongside Germany (their opponents on Tuesday, July 16), Spain (July 19) and Belgium (July 22), with the group games to be played in Perth and Stirling.
