Doncaster Belles striker Jess Sigsworth has travelled with the England under-19s squad for the UEFA European Women’s championships.

The Auckley teenager is expected to play a large part in the plans of Young Lions manager Mo Marley during the competition which is being staged in Wales.

England have been placed in Group A alongside the host nation, France and Denmark.

Sigsworth, who is set to miss the Belles’ FAWSL league match against Arsenal on Wednesday as well as Liverpool on Saturday due to international duty, will have to wait to see if she gets the nod to feature in England’s opener against two-time winners France tonight (Monday). Kick-off is 8pm (CET).
