More England Joy For Gilliead And Woodman

Newcastle Academy pair Freddie Woodman and Alex Gilliead helped England under-17s made it two wins out of two in Estonia

By Dan King - Newcastle United Club Reporter

Newcastle pair Alex Gilliead and Freddie Woodman both played the full game as England made it two wins out of two in their European Under-17 Championship qualifying campaign.

Having both played against group hosts Estonia on Saturday - goalkeeper Woodman from the start and Gilliead as a substitute - the Magpies due were named in John Peacock's starting XI against Wales in Tallinn on Tuesday.

And a 1-0 victory means that the young Lions progress to next year's Elite Qualifying Round with a match to spare, and will be certain of topping the group if they beat Northern Ireland on Friday.

For Gilliead, it was a second cap at under-17 level while it was Woodman's third and the 15-year-old goalkeeper has still yet to concede a goal in any of those games or in his two appearances for England under-16s.

But that was only thanks to a vital stop to deny Keston Davies in stoppage time at the end of the match as Manchester City midfielder Kean Bryan's goal proved decisive.
