Swain Names Squad for Montaigu Trip

Kenny Swain is looking to build on this year's victory over Spain

Kenny Swain has named his squad for his side’s trip to France to take part in the annual Montaigu tournament.

It is the 40th edition of the competition this year and as a one-off the tournament will host 12 teams as opposed to the usual 8.

England have been drawn against Morrocco and Japan in their group of three teams.

Speaking to thefa.com, Swain said: “This is the next challenge for them. It’s a different scenario because it’s a tournament and will be their first experience of it.
“Whilst it’s not a championship where you can get knocked out, you still play the games and get that taste of what it’s like at a tournament.
“It will be a good tournament too, because there’s a world element to it with 12 teams involved this year as it’s the 40th anniversary of the tournament.
“The Montaigu Tournament is an important part of our programme so we’re looking forward to it.”

The tournament begins on Tuesday 3rd April and The Youth Radar will be covering the whole tournament.

Goalkeepers: Daniel Atkinson (Leeds United), Callum Burton (Shrewsbury Town)
