U18 England vs Netherlands - Investing in Youth

Tonight England's under 18s play the Netherlands for the second match within two days.By hosting the match and investing in their stadium, Bury FC have shown a keen interest in helping to grow youth football. 

Tonight  England's U18 side will take on the Netherlands in the second of their two friendlies.

Many of the players included in tonight's squad were of the squad that won the under 17 Euro competition. England's main threats will be Adam Armstrong who scored two and Demetri Mitchell who scored a superb free-kick in the last game.

The Netherlands looked good for spells last time round, but in tonight's game they know they will have to be up to a higher standard to compete with England's bright youngsters. Although both teams have proved that there's a lot of talent in their ranks and definitely have potential of reaching the first team. 

Bury FC are hosting the game in order to encourage youth football, having developed an exciting youth team themselves. The owners have also invested hugely into the club with over £150,000 and are running a car park scheme for investors, from which funds will be reinvested into the club. With recent devlelopments, Bury have shown a key interest in promoting youth football, a vision which many hope will be replicated by other clubs.
