MK Dons Ladies starlet Abbie Roberts has helped England Under-17s progress through to the final round of qualifying for the European Championships.

Roberts joined up with her national side earlier this month and was part of a Young Lionesses squad which won three out of three matches – John Griffiths side scored 19 times and didn’t concede a goal as they cruised through to next spring’s elite qualifying round.

In other international news, Girls Regional Talent Club recently received four call-ups to the England Women’s Under-15s squad.

Current Under-14s Ellie Sargeant, Lucy O’Brien, as well as Under-16s player Molly Lemon, will spend time with Head Coach Lydia Bedford’s squad for a training camp. Lemon’s Under-16s team-mate Amalie Newman-Booth is on standby, as is goalkeeper Maisie Thompson.

Football Development Officer Holly Skinner said: “This success is a credit to their hard work and dedication in both training and matches.

“From everyone at the Club, we would like to congratulate them on this great achievement and wish them all the best for the camp”
