- Jordan Williams called into England Under-17 squad
- Meltham-born defender joined Town at Under-10 level
- Current Under-16 player could feature in three internationals
Huddersfield Town Academy defender Jordan Williams has been summoned to the England Under-17 squad for the upcoming St. George’s Park International Tournament.
The centre back, who hails from Meltham and joined the Academy at nine years old, is currently in the Under-16 group at Town’s Academy.
Jordan and England have three games scheduled in the tournament; a game on 26 August against Italy at AFC Telford, another against Turkey at Walsall on 28 August and a final fixture against Portugal to be played at Burton Albion on 30 August.
This is Jordan’s first call-up for England at Under-17 level, although he did play in a friendly for England’s Under-16 side against Belgium in August 2014.
Huddersfield Town’s Academy Manager Mark Lillis commented:
“It’s fantastic news for Jordan that he will get the opportunity to represent his country in the upcoming St. George’s Park tournament; we’re all very proud of him.
“Jordan’s development has been fantastic and I would expect to see him playing regularly for our Under-18 group this season, as he is ready for that challenge.
“This call-up is also a significant achievement for the Club and all the staff at the Academy to have a player representing England; something that we want to see more and more of in the future as we continue to raise the bar in our own standards.”
