First U18 cap for young keeper
Graham Turner has praised the dedication of Shrewsbury Town's teenage goalkeeper Callum Burton after he returned to the international stage yesterday.
Burton was a late addition to the England under-18 squad from the stand by list because of an injury for the friendly with Hungary at St George's Park.
Burton, a second year scholar at the Greenhous Meadow, had impressed at a couple of training sessions with the squad last week and was delighted to be sent on as a late substitute for the closing stages as England eased to a 4-0 win.
It was Burton's first cap for England at under-18 level following previous appearances for the under-16s and under-17s.
"The logical point of view is it puts Callum in the top three of young English goalkeepers, which is a tremendous thing for him to be," said Graham Turner.
"I watch him work every day with Danny Coyne, our goalkeeping coach, and he's got a great attitude to work, a great manner about the place.
"He's a smashing lad and if anybody deserves to make progress from the dedication he puts into then it's Callum."
