Jake Recalled To England C Squad

Aldershot Town midfielder Jake Gallagher has been called up to the England C squad for the International Challenge Trophy qualifier against Slovakia U21.

Manager Paul Fairclough has named a 16-man squad for the game which will be played at Sutton United’s Gander Green Lane stadium on Sunday 5 June at 2pm. Admission is free for all supporters.
