Young ‘keeper to spend three days in England Goalkeeping Camp
- Ryan Schofield called-up to England ‘keepers camp
- Schofield to spend three days at St. George’s Park
- Camps are designed to develop youngsters’ games
17 year-old goalkeeper Ryan Schofield has been called-up to a three day England Goalkeeping Camp at St. George’s Park.
Ryan, who has been called-up for both England’s Under-18s, 19s and 20s was invited to take part in the Goalkeeping Camp that start today (Monday 27 November 2017) and runs to Wednesday 29 November 2017.
The camps were introduced just over a decade ago to help the young ‘keepers showcase their skills to England’s Goalkeeping Coaches ahead of future international selections, whilst also developing certain areas of their game, giving them a taste of how England sides prepare for international football.
In the past Joe Hart, Jack Butland and Jordan Pickford to name a few were all called-up to similar Goalkeeping Camps like Ryan in the early stages of their careers.
Ryan was most recently away with England’s Under-19s squad as the Young Lions qualified for the Under-19 European Championships.
Not only this but the 17 year-old was instrumental for England’s Under-20s during the summer as the youngsters retained their title as Toulon Tournament Champions.
The young ‘keeper has been working with Huddersfield Town’s First Team since the start of the Premier League season being heavily involved in all sessions alongside Jonas Lössl, Joel Coleman and Robert Green.
Huddersfield Town’s Head of Goalkeeping Paul Clements commented:
“I’d firstly like to say congratulations to Ryan for being called-up to the England Goalkeeping Camp.
“He has been called-up on merit because of his form and attitude whilst playing for England’s younger sides during the previous international breaks.
“This Goalkeeping Camp will help him develop even further as he picks up new things from other coaches and other young goalkeepers.
“He will come back to us after this with even more confidence, which will ultimately benefit both Huddersfield Town and Ryan a lot over the next coming seasons.”
