MK Dons Women are delighted to announce U16s RTC goalkeeper Erin Radbourne has received her first call up to the England U16's Lionesses training camp next week. Erin (14), who first joined MK Dons SET in the boy's talent pathway in 2017, joined the RTC aged 10.
On the phenomenal achievement, Erin had the following to say.
“I am honoured and super excited to have been called up to the England Women’s U16 Training Camp, especially after such an amazing summer for the women’s game. I hope I can be one of the next generations of players to lead the way and I am very happy with the progress I have made as I have only been a goalkeeper for 2 years. My path has only just started but this just goes to show what specialised coaching and dedication can create. I can't wait to get going! ”
Jon Dewick - Girls' Football Development Manager
"This is a fantastic opportunity for Erin and shows how well she has developed. Erin started out with the RTC as an outfield player and made the change to a goalkeeper at the start of her under 12 season. This was a big jump, but her progress has been excellent and shows how hard-working Erin is. All RTC staff are proud of Erin’s progress and to get this opportunity is great for all involved in the RTC."
Jack Sharp - Head of Football & Performance
" We are immensely proud of Erin for earning this opportunity, it is testament to her hard work and dedication to her football. Erin joins a list of prestigious players who have received international recognition whilst being at MK Dons. We are really proud of our girls' and women's pathway, with success stories like this hugely important for moving the club forwards. Congratulations to JD and his staff for the time and care given to Erin to enable her to gain this fantastic experience."
