More international recognition for keeper

Northampton Town goalkeeper Dean Snedker has been called in to the England under 19 squad for their international friendly with Denmark on Tuesday February 5th.

Snedker joins the likes of Arsenal's Chuba Akpom, Eric Dier  from Sporting Lisbon, Jordan Pickford from Sunderland, Daniel Potts of West Ham and Tyler Blackett from Manchester United.

This is Snedker's second call up in the space of a week, after he was selected to take part in an England goalkeeper's training camp at St George's Park last week.

The highly rated Snedker, who is a product of Northampton Town's Academy, fully deserves his call up, according to boss Aidy Boothroyd.

"Congratulations to Dean, he is making excellent progress and that progress is clearly being noted at the highest level of the game," he said.

"He is a young goalkeeper with fantastic potential and we are really pleased both for Dean and for our Academy that he has earned this call up.

"We wish Dean every success while he is away with England. He already has some first team experience, and the experience of playing international football with Premier League players can only be good for him.

"We will keep his feet on the ground, but he a keeper who has a very bright future in the game."
