Burton Albion are giving supporters the chance to cheer on England in the Third Place play-off against Italy at Burton Albion on Sunday (12pm) for free.

 

Season Ticket holders and Junior Brewers members can claim two free tickets to watch the crucial match against Italy (12pm), the winner will earn a place at next year's Women's Under-17 World Cup in Costa Rica.

 

Supporters will need to show their Season Ticket or Junior Brewes membership card when claiming their two free tickets.

 

England bowed out of the Women's Under-17 European Championships after a 3-0 defeat to Spain on Thursday but Lois Fidler's side still have a chance to claim a place at next year's World Cup.

 

England International's Casey Stoney and Jack Butland along with 887 supporters watched on Thursday evening and the duo believe the experience of playing at a big stadium in front of a lively crowd will only add to the girls' experience.

 

Butland said: "It is a very proud moment for them and their families to put the shirt on but it is certainly an experience that they'll never forget and it's a fantastic opportunity to show what you can do on the international stage."

 

He added: "Women's football in particular is growing and it's getting bigger and bigger which is fantastic, hopefully by putting these games on it can inspire more young kids to get involved and play the game.

 

"There is no better feeling than playing in front of your home nation hopefully it'll inspire all the kids watching and they can get involved."

"It is good for the club that they can put on great evening's like tonight (Thursday), it's great for any club to host international football no matter what level it is, there was a good crowd."

 

England's Women international Casey Stoney believes the experience of playing at the likes of Burton Albion will be invaluable for the girls.

 

She said: "To get tournament experience and exposure to crowds and playing game after game will be invaluable to these young girls.

 

"It will really help them in the future and the women's game going forward.

 

"You only have to look when I was playing and this didn't happen, to have this amount of exposure for an Under 17 tournament is fantastic, it adds to the game and profiles the game," added Stoney.
