Young Lions in Profile

22 March 2016

Taking a look at some of the stars of the show set for the Keepmoat Stadium on Easter Sunday.

With England U20’s due at Keepmoat Stadium on Sunday to take on their Canadian counterparts, takes a quick look at some of the Young Lions set to be on show in South Yorkshire.

Fans can get to the game with tickets priced at just £3 for adults and £1.50 for concessions.

Name: Reece Burke
Club: Bradford City – on loan from West Ham
Position: Centre Back
Burke was named as West Ham’s Young Hammer of the Year last season after impressing for their development side and earning a loan move to League One promotion chasers Bradford City. The tall and accomplished defender has made ten appearances in all competitions for United – including three appearances in their Europa League endeavours – and has gone on to feature 28 times at the heart of the Bantams defence since.

Name: James Maddison
Club: Coventry - on loan from Norwich
Position: Attacking midfield
A skilful ball player, Maddison signed for Norwich on Deadline Day of the latest January Transfer Window.  His superb form for home club Coventry City prompted the Canaries to acquire his services on a three and a half year contract before loaning him back to the Ricoh Arena where he is now focussed on helping the Sky Blues to the Championship.

Name: Marcus Rashford
Club: Manchester United
Position: Striker
Thrust in to the spotlight by Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal, Rashford’s stock continues to rise and he stands on the cusp of the international stage. His debut double in the Europa League at Old Trafford was subsequently backed up by repeating the trick against old rivals Arsenal and then sinking Manchester City in the derby in one of the rapidly evolving stories of the season.

Goalkeepers: Angus Gunn (Manchester City) Ted Smith (Southend United)
Defenders: Ola Aina (Chelsea), Mason Holgate (Everton), Reece Burke (Bradford City – on loan from West Ham), Harry Toffolo (Peterborough – on loan from Norwich City), Jake Cooper (Reading), Kean Bryan (Manchester City).
