Town trio get England Youth call

20 December 2013

Callum Burton, Scott Gormley and Harry Lewis to gain England international honours

England international honours continue to come the way of Shrewsbury Town.  

As revealed on ShrewsWeb earlier this week, the club's assistant physio Scott Gormley has been invited to combine his Greenhous Meadow role with working with the England under-18 squad for the next 12 months.

And there's also been good news for two of the club's highly rated keepers who have both been selected for young England squad training camps early in the new year.

Second year scholar Callum Burton, already capped at under-16, 17, and 18 level, has been named as one of two keepers by head coach Neil Dewsnip in a 22-man squad for a training camp at St George's Park between January 5-7.

And there's also a first England call up for delighted Harry Lewis, a pupil at Shrewsbury's Meole Brace School, who will turn 16 this week.

Harry, the grandson of Shrewsbury Town goalkeeping legend Ken Mulhearn, will join the full time Greenhous Meadow staff to begin a two-year scholarship next summer.

He will also have the chance to impress England's youth coaches when he attends a training camp next month. 

Gormley, assistant physio to Chris Skitt, said he was looking forward to having the chance to work with the England under-18 squad as part of his studies for a Masters in sports medicine.  

"It's a massive honour for me," said Gormley. "It's a dream come true to get the chance to work in the England set up.

"It won't affect my work here. I've spoken to the gaffer and they know the times I'll be here and I'll be away." 

Gormley's first three games involved with England under-18s will be home matches against Croatia, Belgium and Germany.
