Ronnie Edwards and Jadel Katongo

England men’s under-20s will begin the 2023-24 season with a training camp at St. George’s Park as they prepare to start the new Euro U20 Elite League in October and Posh defender Ronnie Edwards and recent loan arrival Jadel Katongo are in the squad.

With Joe Edwards acting as interim head coach until the end of the year, he’s called upon a 24-strong group to assemble at St. George’s Park for five days of work on the training pitch.

They will kick-off their games next month with a trip to play Romania in Bucharest on 12 October before they will take on Portugal at home with the venue and date for that game still to be confirmed.

The Young Lions squad contains five players who featured for the MU20s last season, with Ronnie Edwards, Bas Humphreys, Jarell Quansah, Alfie Devine and Darko Gyabi all playing at the FIFA U20 World Cup in Argentina and remain young enough to represent the MU20s again this term.

There are also players who were part of the MU19s squad who reached the 2023 UEFA U19 EURO elite qualifying round in March but missed out on a place in the Finals. 

The duo are away from the 4th to the 9th September, so won't miss any games as the Cheltenham league clash was postponed.
