Carl Rushworth has been called up to the England under-19 squad.

The 18-year-old will link up with Paul Simpson’s squad for their trio of UEFA European U19 Championship qualifiers on the 13th, 16th and 19th November respectively, with all three contests taking place in the Macedonian capital of Skopje.

The keeper is currently out on loan with Worthing in the BetVictor Isthmian Premier Division, and signed for Albion from Halifax Town in January 2019. 

Rushworth made six appearances in the Premier League South for Albion’s under-18s during the 2018/19 campaign, helping the team finish in fifth place after ending the season with five consecutive victories, before moving up to join Albion’s under-23s ahead of the 2019/20 Premier League 2 campaign.
