25 January 2016

Young Owl George Hirst has been called up to the England Under-17 squad.

The Three Lions are set to take part in the Algarve Tournament next month.

England will begin with a clash against hosts Portugal on 5 February at the Municipal Stadium Bela Vista.

Two days later, they face Germany in Lagos before rounding off the tournament against the Netherlands on 9 February in Parchal.

The 16-year-old has featured on a regular basis for the Owls Under-18s and on occasion for the Under-21s this season.

And Hirst was back on the scoresheet on Saturday as the Owls academy defeated Leeds United 3-2 at Middlewood Road.
