Brownie makes Three Lions Debut

Sheffield FC youngster Alex Brown made his international debut yesterday, as part of the England C Squad taking on Ireland FA Amateurs in Dublin.

Alex was playing alongside players from higher up the National League system than Sheffield FC and, coming on as a 55th-minute substitute, gave a good account of himself and forced a good save from the Irish keeper. The game belonged to the hosts, however, who ran out winners 4 - 2. 

In Alex's own words "it was a great experience for me to test myself against players in higher divisions with more experience. It was a huge honour to make my England C debut and to represent my country". 

Well done Alex - here's to many more appearances in the 3 Lions shirt!
