Former Gloucester City forward called up to England squad

Former Gloucester City striker Ed Williams has been called up to the England C squad for their fixture against Estonia Under 23s on Wednesday 10 October. 

Williams, now of Kidderminster Harriers, has been called up to the squad for the first time with Three Lions C manager Paul Fairclough choosing a new look squad for the upcoming match at Leyton Orient.

The 23 year-old attacker left Gloucester on a free transfer at the end of the 2017/18 season after a campaign that saw him voted as both Supporters and Players Player of the Season.

Since his move to Aggborough from the Tigers in the summer, the Hartpury College graduate has set the National League North alight and as such has been attracting interest from Championship sides Ipswich Town and Aston Villa amongst others.

England C is made up of players aged 23 and under who represent clubs from the National League and below, effectively England’s non-League XI.

The full squad can be seen below:

Goalkeepers: Ryan Huddart (Boreham Wood), Ben Killip (Braintree Town)

Defenders: Jerome Binnom-Williams (Chesterfield FC), Marvin Ekpiteta (Leyton Orient), Laurence Maguire (Chesterfield), Jon Mellish (Gateshead), Robbie Tinkler (Gateshead)

Midfielders: Ryan Croasdale (AFC Fylde), Wesley Fonguck (Barnet), James Hardy (AFC Fylde), Joshua Taylor (Sutton United), Edward Williams (Kidderminster Harriers)

Forwards: Luke James (Hartlepool United), Josh Koroma (Leyton Orient), Kurt Willoughby (FC United of Manchester), Thomas Wright (Sutton United)
