Miller said: “Preparations have been going really well and the players and staff are very much looking forward to the experience in Parma.

“The group have been excellent to work with, and we’ve seen real progress in the training and matches we’ve had so far.

  1. Go make a name for yourselves… grab the chance being offered, very tough games indeed. Remember the old saying “slow to chide but swift to bless” please everyone 🤔

  2. Three tough games ahead of them. Let’s get behind all of these young players. They have all worked hard, week in, week out, to get to this point and need all the support we can give. Some will go all the way I’m sure but every one of them will be giving their best in a tough but exciting environment.

  3. Lack of comments on this one! Just to say congratulations to all the boys on their call ups. Good luck in the festival!
