LOCKDOWN RESEARCH!!

Update: June 2021

Another page has been added in this category, tracking a variety of Representative Honours.

Go to:

Representative Honours





International honours...

During the most recent lockdown, Executive Committee member Ian Beck has been researching players who went to school in the Northumberland County Schools' FA area (which includes Newcastle and North Tyneside) and have gone on to represent England - both at Schoolboy level and Full International level.

The first local schoolboy to become a full international was Tom Porteous - in 1891; the most recent was Fraser Forster in 2013 - the same year that Lucy Bronze (who hails from Alnwick) made her debut too.

How many of these players could YOU name?
