Josh Sims handed first England U18 call-up

By SFC Media Tue 26 Aug International

Josh Sims has been handed his first-ever England U18 call-up for two upcoming friendlies with Holland.

The Saints winger will join up with the Young Lions squad for a behind-closed-doors match with the Dutch on Wednesday 3rd September before a repeat of the fixture on the following Friday that’s open to the public at Bury’s JD Stadium – kick-off 7.30pm BST.

Sims has been rewarded with an inclusion in Neil Dewsnip’s side after aiding his country’s tournament-winning campaign in the UEFA European Under-17 Championship in May.

The Southampton youngster has fond memories of facing Holland after triumphing over them in the Euro final in Malta. That followed a fine international bow for Sims against the Dutch when he registered a goal and an assist in February’s Algarve Tournament.
