Guernsey footballer Maya Le Tissier has been called up to the England U16s for an international next month.

The St Martins player, who became the first girl from the Channel Islands to represent England earlier this year, is making the step up from the U15s.

Le Tissier will join up with the squad at St George’s Park at the start of a November for a training camp, which will culminate with a match against another national side.

She was named as captain on her England age-group debut against Belgium in April and says it is an amazing feeling to be called up again.
