England C boss Paul Fairclough has named his squad to face Wales next month.

The Non-League Three Lions ended last year with a win over Estonia U23s at Leyton Orient and now they head to Salford City’s Peninsula Stadium for their next game on Tuesday March 19.

Fairclough has named a 16-man squad, with the group set to meet up in Manchester after their club fixtures on Saturday March 16. They will train at Bury FC in preparation for the game.

It’s a return fixture from last year’s thrilling clash in Barry, where England won 3-2.

Only four members of the team involved that night remain in the squad for this game in the shape of Dan Jones, Laurence Maguire, Ryan Croasdale and James Hardy.

But many of the group who were involved in that win over Estonia last November are selected again, including Alfie Pavey who scored the winner from the penalty spot.

England C is a representative team for U23 players who feature for clubs at National League level and below.

Fans can pay to watch the game on the night, with admission costing £10 for adults, £5 for concessions (U16 and over 60) with U5s going free.

The Squad:

Goalkeepers: Ryan Huddart (Boreham Wood), Ben Killip (Braintree Town)

Defenders: Marvin Ekpiteta (Leyton Orient), Daniel Jones (Barrow), Laurence Maguire (Chesterfield), Jon Mellish (Gateshead), Luke Trotman (Darlington)

Midfielders: Ryan Croasdale (AFC Fylde), James Hardy (AFC Fylde), Greg Olley (Gateshead), Thomas Walker (Salford City) Edward Williams (Kidderminster Harriers)

Forwards: Brandon Goodship (Weymouth), Luke James (Hartlepool United), Josh Koroma (Leyton Orient), Alfie Pavey (Dover Athletic)
