BELLES’ very own Fab Four will be flying the flag for Doncaster at this summer’s European Championships.

Goalkeeper Mary Earps, midfielder Kasia Lipka and strikers Beth England and Jessica Sigsworth have all been named in England Women’s U19 squad for next month’s UEFA European Championship Finals.

The quartet will fly out to their base in Turkey later this month before facing Spain, Serbia and Sweden in Group B.

Doncaster Rovers Belles’ four call-ups mean that they, along with Aston Villa, have more representatives than any other club in Mo Marley’s 18-strong squad.

And four could yet become five - with forward Millie Bright also on England’s standby list.

Belles boss John Buckley said: “I’m delighted that Mary, Kasia, Jess and Beth have been selected.

“They have all developed during the last season and they are all used to big games and big occasions.

“I’m sure that they will do well and be an asset to England.

“My only disappointment is for young Millie who has also been outstanding for us this season and is very unfortunate to only be on standby.”

England topped their Euro 2012 Elite Qualifying Round group with three wins from three matches, against Finland, Wales and Austria.

This year’s finals take place from July 2-14 in Antalya.
