Season extended for Matthew after England call-up!

Young Dons keeper to attend national training camp

21 May 2021

There will certainly be no complaints from Matthew Cox about having his season extended!

That's because our 18-year-old keeper has once again been called up by England.

Our talented young keeper will join up next week with the national Under-19s squad for a training camp at St George's Park. 

The Young Lions had been aiming to reach the UEFA U19 EURO Finals this summer, before the qualifying stage in March and July’s Finals were cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Head coach Ian Foster is now looking towards the 2021-22 campaign by bringing his group for next season together to train at the national football centre for five days.

Matthew has been included in a 28-strong squad for the camp, which will start on Sunday 23 May and run until Thursday 27 May, as Foster looks to prepare the group for the 2022 U19 EURO.

That is scheduled to begin in November when the Young Lions will play group hosts Sweden, Switzerland and Andorra in the first qualifying round of a tournament which finishes with summer finals in Slovakia in July 2022.
