Doncaster Rovers Belles youngster Ashleigh Mills has been named in the England under-19s training squad alongside team-mate Jess Sigsworth.

The 16-year-old has impressed since manager John Buckley acquired the services of the Balby Academy youngster this season who can play in defence and midfield.

She will join striker Sigsworth, a regular selection in Mo Marley’s Young Lions’ squad, in the 30-player squad ready for England’s preparations for this summer’s Euro finals.

The England Women’s under-19s boss led her side to Wales 2013 after seeing off Norway, Hungary and Serbia in the qualifiers last month.

The Young Lions have been placed in Group A alongside Denmark, France and the host nation.

Marley’s outfit will meet up at St George’s Park on June 12 for a three-day camp.
