Big day for Callum Burton

18 February 2014

Callum hoping for England U18 honour against Belgium

Young Shrewsbury Town goalkeeper Callum Burton will hope to collect his second England under-18 cap this afternoon in a friendly with Belgium at St George's Park.
 
Burton, a second year scholar at the Greenhous Meadow, has been capped by England at under-16, 17 and 18 level after impressing the national coaches.
 
The starting XI for this afternoon's match has not been revealed but Town caretaker manager Mike Jackson and goalkeeping coach Danny Coyne are heading over to Burton to watch the game after training.
 
They will then travel on to Northampton to watch Coventry City take on Carlisle United. Town face both clubs next month.
 
"I don't know if Callum's starting but I think it's good for us to go and watch him because of what he's actually done which is a credit to him," said Jacko.
 
"We need to show these sorts of lads that we think a lot of them and we do, so we'll be going to watch the game." 
 
Meanwhile, Shrewsbury Town's youth teamm without keeper Burton, resume their Youth Alliance season with a home match against Rochdale at the Shrewsbury Sports Village today (Tuesday).
 
Kick off is at noon and admission is free with spectators welcome to come along and support the club's young players.
