Emma Coates said: “It’s going to be a hugely exciting year for the WU23s as we compete in our first structured competition. As the women’s game continues to grow, we need to ensure our WU23 age group is connected to the pathway to the senior team, and this competition gives us the chance to do exactly that.

“The first two fixtures against Norway and Belgium will be a tough test against quality opposition, which is exactly what we want to start our campaign strongly. We hope to see a good crowd turnout in Shrewsbury to cheer the team on in our first home game of the new season.”
