Brighton & Hove Albion girls’ centre of excellence is celebrating more international success after three players were called up to England camps.
Under-17 players Hollie Olding and Natalie Taylor have been selected to take part in an England under-16 training camp at St George’s Park on Saturday 23rd May and Sunday 24th May.
It is the third call-up in the space of three months for the duo, after they featured in a UEFA under-16 development tournament against Switzerland, Sweden and France at St George’s Park, and in a two-day training camp at Bisham Abbey in February.
Goalkeeper Hannah Gardener has been named in an England under-15 squad for a five-day camp at Warwick University between Sunday 24th May and Friday 29th May, including two fixtures against Holland.

Albion’s elite women and girls football manager, Tracy Doe, is delighted for all three and believes this highlights the depth of talent in the club’s centre of excellence.
She told seagulls.co.uk, “We are steadily building a reputation for developing very talented international footballers here at the club.
“These call-ups further demonstrate the strength of the women’s set-up at Brighton and puts us on the radar with the likes of Arsenal and Chelsea in terms of the strength of our player development programme.
“We are also starting to reap the rewards of being based at the club’s state-of-the-art training facility and it’s evident that the players have benefited tremendously from the extra time on the grass since moving here.”
