ENGLAND U18 Schoolboys trained at Blackburn Rovers’ Brockhall training complex yesterday ahead of their Centenary Shield decider with Scotland at Ewood Park tonight (7pm).

England, who are managed by Queen Elizabeth Grammar School teacher Andy Buckingham, will lift the trophy if they win.

Ewood last played host to a Centenary Shield clash in 2007 when England took on the current holders Northern Ireland.

Tickets for tonight’s game are £5 for adults and £2 for concessions. More than 2,000 have already been sold and Buckingham hopes the crowd will be nearer 3,000 come kick off.

Tickets are available from the Rovers club shop at Ewood and in Blackburn town centre, online or by calling the ticket office on 0871 222 1444.
