FOOTBALL: MIDFIELDER George Carline has been selected to play for England’s C team in their upcoming friendly matches at home to Punjab FA and away to Jersey FA.
Carline becomes only the second Moors player to represent his country – following in the footsteps of Omar Bogle.
With the Punjab game being played Automated Technology Group Stadium, Carline will receive the full support from the home crowd on his debut.
Born in Birmingham, the highly-rated youngster was Liam McDonald’s second signing for Moors after he bagged ten goals for Hednesford Town in the Evo-Stik League Northern Premier.
George is a strong box-to-box midfielder that offers an all-round attacking threat and is known to score plenty of goals with his head.
He has made 24 starts for Solihull, scoring four goals along the way – making his debut in the 2-0 home win against North Ferriby in November last year.
He said: “It’s a nice feeling knowing that my performances have been noticed.
“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the step up to the National League with Solihull in what has been a great season for the club.
“It’s a great opportunity for me and it will be a special occasion putting on the England shirt.”
The squad will assemble on Friday (May 26) and will train at Wolverhampton’s training ground between May 26-28.
They will then go to Moors’ ground for the game against Punjab FA on Sunday (May 28) – kick-off at 3pm.
The squad will then fly to Jersey on Monday (May 29) to play Jersey FA at Springfield Stadium in St Helier on Tuesday (May 30), kick-off 7.30pm.
