Young forward Alex Gilliead has been called up to the England under-20 squad for their fixture against Canada on Easter Sunday.

Gilliead, who is currently on a season-long loan deal at Carlisle United, has been named in Keith Downing's side to take on their Canadian counterparts at Doncaster Rovers' Keepmoat Stadium on Sunday, 27th March.

The 20-year-old, who has bagged four goals in 31 outings for the Cumbrians since heading to Brunton Park in September, signed a new deal with United in January which will keep him at St. James' Park until the summer of 2018, with the option of a further year.
