Four Preston walking football players selected for England international

Four players from Preston North End’s over 40s walking football team have been selected for their first England international.

The four train with PNE’s community team, and Anne-Marie Craven says she’s also honoured to be chosen as the first England captain.

She said: “I’ve played football much of my life and regularly go to Deepdale,  so I can hardly believe I have this opportunity to play for England.

“We have a great team spirit at PNE and work hard in training, so we hope it’ll encourage other women looking to improve their fitness to come and join us.”

England will play Wales on November 2.
