The England Under 20’s Women Football team last week trained with the Royal Marines, spending 48 hours at Commando Training Centre, Lympstone.
During the training, 31 players from the squad tackled the Royal Marines Endurance Course, completed the infamous mud-run and spent a night outdoors.
Next month the team will be competing at the U20 World Cup finals in France, hoping their training Royal Marines will put them in good stead as they face North Korea, Mexico and Brazil in the group stage of the tournament.
"The experience has been incredible. The girls are closer now than they’ve ever been, and we’re in a much better place as a result of this experience."
England U20 Head Coach Mo Marley
The team have followed in the footsteps of the England Men’s Team who completed similar training with the Royal Marines in preparation of their current world cup successes, with the team reaching the Semi-Final of the World Cup for the first time in 28 Years.
