Five Blues Ladies stars have been called up to an England Women U23 training camp next month.

Goalkeeper Mary Earps, defenders Chelsea Weston and Kerys Harrop and forward Izzy Christiansen are all part of the young Three Lions party.

However the most notable inclusion is that of forward Kirsty Linnett. It tops off a stunning start to the 2013 campaign for the former Leicester and Arsenal player after a nightmare two years.

Linnett had endured a frustrating time before she signed for Blues this season after suffering successive anterior cruciate ligament injuries. However the 19-year-old has played a major part in Blues’ unbeaten start to the FA WSL campaign and now finds herself back in the international fold having previously represented the Three Lions at youth level.

The U23 training camp, from June 21 to 27, will also include fixtures against Sweden and Norway.
