2 June 2018 : Quartet Of Glovers In England Seniors Squad
The England Seniors successfully landed in Bangkok yesterday, with four current or former Yeovil Town players and coaches numbered in their ranks. The squad are currently undertaking a training camp, prior to the tournament itself, which takes place later this month. Pictured inside that squad are former Yeovil Town manager and midfielder Steve Thompson along with current goalkeeping coach Steve Phillips.

The squad also features two other former Yeovil Town players. Winger Lee Elam featured for the club during its first season in the Football League. At the age of 41 years old, he finished his playing days at Harrogate Town; the same town that provide the main organisation and set-up for the England Seniors team. He is now managing Eccleshill United's Under-21 side. In addition, the squad includes midfielder Alex Russell, who played for the club under Terry Skiverton during the second half of the 2010-11 season.

The Seniors squad took part in a warm-up match against a Thailand B team in Bangkok today. During the first half, goals from Peter Beagrie, Barry Hayles and Mark Saunders put them 3-0 up in heavy rain, before a much-changed second half side added a fourth goal, with Alex Russell scoring. England are the current holders of the tournament, and so will be one of the fancied sides once the competition starts later in June.
