Rob Burch has continued his progress by being named alongside Ben Bowditch in England's squad for the prestigious International Festival of Toulon.

The young goalkeeper made rapid strides in the second half of last season following a loan spell at Conference outfit Woking.

He maintained his fine form back at the club and impressed in a number of reserve appearances towards the end of the season.

He also played for England U20s in that time and his performances have secured his place in Les Reed's squad for this U21 tournament.

Midfielder Ben has been a regular at this level for England and he too impressed at reserve level towards the end of last season.

The famous Toulon event starts on Tuesday (June 10) and runs through to June 21.

England face a real test with group games against Portugal, Argentina, Turkey and Japan. They must make it into the top two to qualify.
