U19's UEFA European Championship Qualifiers

Several FA Nationwide Premier League fixtures have been postponed this weekend due to the Under-19 UEFA European Championship First Group qualifying stages, with both England U19 and Wales U19 sides involved. England Under-19 Coach Mo Marley has selected several new players to the U19 squad for their Group matches against Scotland, Ukraine and hosts Romania from September 19-28. The winners will progress to a Second Group qualifying stage in April to compete for a Finals place. Match reports will be available on TheFA.com.

Yorkshire to host UEFA U19's

3rd September 2004
UEFA Under-19's Women's Championship

Yorkshire has been chosen as the region to host the England Women’s Under-19 team’s quest to qualify for the 2004 UEFA U19 European Championship Finals. England will face a tough four-team Qualifying Tournament against Wales, Romania and Bulgaria, aiming to finish top and secure a place in the next qualifying round. The tournament will be played between 27th September – 2nd October 2004 with games being held at York City, Halifax Town and South Leeds Stadium.

The England Under-19's team face two rounds of qualifying to reach the annual eight-team Finals, which will be held in July 2005 in Hungary. England were semi-finalists in 2002 and 2003, and reached the quarter-finals of the 2002 FIFA U19 World Championship, so have a good record in recent competitions.

The FA is delighted to be bringing an international women’s tournament to the area, which has seen as massive rise in the popularity of the game. Girls’ football is growing rapidly in the region, with the numbers of registered girls’ teams in the West Riding area rising by 60 per cent last season. These figures reflect the national picture with the number of girls playing football over the past year in English schools, clubs and in leisure time is 1.6 million according to FA Research (BRMB, May 2004).

National Women’s Coach Hope Powell said: “The current crop of Under-19 internationals have played in two friendlies recently against Sweden and Finland and have shown they can perform well in Europe this season. We are hoping that local football fans and players will turn out to cheer the team onto victory and they can expect to see some entertaining football played by emerging talent. Some of the players may go onto play for the Senior squad at the highest level and this tournament will play a key part in their development.”

The young England side, who are also coached by former England captain Mo Marley, will kick-off their European campaign at York City on Tuesday September 27th against Bulgaria at 7.00pm. Earlier that day Wales will play Bulgaria at the same venue, kick-off 2pm.

York City Communications Director Sophie McGill said: "York City Football Club is proud to be hosting the England Under-19 women's football tournament at Bootham Crescent. This is a prestigious sporting event and a chance for the people of York to see the women's football stars of the future. We are delighted to be working with The Football Association to ensure the tournament is a great success."

The second match day, on Thursday September 29th at Halifax Town FC, will feature a 2pm kick-off between Wales and Bulgaria, then England will play Romania at 7.00pm. Chief Executive of the Shay Stadium Trust Geoff Butler commented: “We are delighted that we have been chosen for these prestigious matches and hope that local football fans will enjoy having the option to watch international football in the area.”

England’s final fixture will be a Home Nations clash against Wales on Saturday 2nd September with a 2.00pm kick-off. At the same time Bulgaria will play Romania at a local venue to be confirmed.

Councillor John Procter, Executive Member for Leisure at leeds City Council, said: “Leeds City Council are proud to host an international UEFA U19 Women's Championship football match at their flagship site – South Leeds Stadium. The home nation game is the first major women's football event to take place at the Stadium and potentially will be the platform to introduce women's international football and other key sporting events to the people of Leeds.”

Tickets for the matches will go on sale from Friday 3rd September from the respective venues. The Football Association has set the entry at just £1 for adults and concessions, in order to attract families and young players along to the matches.

UEFA European Women's Under-19 Championship

New edition gets under way
The first qualifying round of the 2004/05 UEFA European Women's Under-19 Championship gets under way this week.
Hosts Hungary
Forty nations were divided into ten groups of four teams for the first qualifying round draw. The eventual group winners, runners-up and the six best third-placed teams will progress to the second qualifying round, where they will join Germany and Norway, the two highest-ranked teams and Hungary, the hosts.
Holders Spain
All eyes will be on Spain, who produced one of the great shocks in the history of UEFA competition to defeat Germany in this summer's final in Helsinki. Ignacio Quereda's team open their campaign on 28 September against F.Y.R. Macedonia, the same day as the Czech Republic tackle Northern Ireland in Group 10's other fixture.
Finland hopeful
Finland qualified automatically as hosts for the 2003/04 final tournament, but will have to negotiate the qualifying stages this time around. The Finns are in Group 8 along with Serbia and Montenegro, Portugal and Slovakia.
Defending champions
Despite falling at the first hurdle in Finland, France are again likely to be among the teams to beat in Hungary. First, however, they will have to get past Denmark, Azerbaijan and Lithuania in Group 3 and then the second qualifying round. Perhaps the most eye-catching game of this stage is Italy versus Sweden, with Estonia and Armenia completing Group 7.

First Qualifying Round

Group 1 Group 2 Group 3 Group 4 Group 5
Austria Belarus Denmark Wales Israel
Netherlands Ukraine France England Russia
Slovenia Moldova Azerbaijan Romania Kazakhstan
Bosnia-Herzegovina Scotland Lithuania Bulgaria Latvia
Group 6 Group 7 Group 8 Group 9 Group 10

Republic of Ireland Estonia Slovakia Faroe Islands F.Y.R. Macedonia

Feature: Road To Hungary 2005 Begins

The first qualifying group phase for the UEFA Women’s 2005 Under 19’s European Championships are set to kick off this week and here at femaleSOCCER.net we will be focussing on Group 4 of the competition, which is being held in Yorkshire and sees two home countries in Wales and England going head to head, alongside Bulgaria and Romania. We’ve been talking to Everton and England Under 19’s manager Mo Marley.
How It Works
Spain are the current holders of the competition following a surprise victory over Germany in the 2004 final held in Helsinki, Finland. As the two highest ranked teams, Germany and Norway automatically qualify for phase two, whilst the remaining teams have been drawn into ten groups. Teams within each group will compete against each other once. Only the team finishing top of the group progresses into the next qualifying round. Group 4 of phase one will commence on 28th September and run till 2nd October. Phase two follows a similar system taking place in April 2005, where by the group winners then qualify to play in the 2005 summer finals held in Hungary.
Former England captain Mo Marley is more than satisfied with her teams preparation for phase one of the Under 19’s European Championship qualifying campaign. “We got the girls together at the West Riding Football Association five days before our first fixture and we’ve been working hard since then to ensure we’re ready. We had a training camp in August as well and have created a great spirit amongst the squad. I think we’re ready”.
England u19’s coach Mo Marley believes the importance for her team in winning Group 4 cannot be underestimated. “The girls know that if they want to play more football at this level and extend their u19 careers then winning through this stage is essential. If we fail to win the group then when the tournament comes around next year, many players will be too old to participate and will have to miss out”. “We don’t put pressure on the girls, this is something they should be enjoying, but it is in their own interests to qualify. Playing more games at this level will boost their experience which is invaluable to their development. We have a young group here and the average age is just over 17. I’m confident that we will do well”.
England’s Group 4 fixtures are from easy with tough matches against Bulgaria, Romania and finishes with a British derby against Wales. However, coach Mo Marley is concentrating on her own side. “We can’t focus too much on the other teams. Every year at this level the players change, so it’s hard to look at the opposition in detail. You can’t influence what others do. We have to be confident that our own international structure works. The right format is in place at all levels for England now”.
Ideal Scenario
Mo Marley has already guided some of English football’s leading women through the international ranks, including Katie Chapman, Fara Williams and Amanda Barr. She’s confident that other future stars are within her current crop of players. “We’re blessed with talent at this level and the strength of talent coming through gets better every year. Some of these girls here now may well go on to represent the senior side at some point and if you just take a look at the u17’s then it’s clear more talent is on the way through”. “At the end of an ideal week, we’ll have qualified. In addition, the girls will have a better understanding of international matches and we’ll have played some quality football”.
The North
With the 2005 Women’s European Championships taking place in the North of England, the Group 4 qualifying stage fixtures for the u19’s held in the Yorkshire region, should help to generate extra interest in the sport within the area. “It’s nice to host the group. We’ve had to play most of these previous group games abroad, so it will be a great experience for the girls to play in front of a home crowd. They’ll be extra media attention, playing with bigger attendances and all this will be good for them. We’re looking forward to it”.

U19s: England v Romania

UEFA European Under-19 Championship Round One Qualifying The Shay, Halifax Town FC 30 September 2004 Late goals by substitute Chantelle Parry and striker Lianne Sanderson sealed England’s second qualifying group victory to set up a Saturday clash with Wales to decide the winners of the four-nation, first round tournament in Yorkshire. Though well below their best England were in control from the moment winger Dani Bird gave them a sixth minute lead, but it took until Parry’s last minute strike and a stoppage time goal by Sanderson to finally kill off the hard working Romanians. Earlier in the day Wales had also gained a second victory, beating Bulgaria 5-0, meaning that both home nations will progress to the second round irrespective of Saturday’s result. England will head into the last day encounter as group leaders due to a marginally better goal difference, but in order to win the group they will have to produce a more thorough performance than their display against Romania. Coach Mo Marley said: "It was disappointing because we had a game plan but didn’t stick to it. We got frustrated and lost our discipline, and in the first half we were sloppy and untidy. "We’d made it clear to the players that we knew it was going to be hard, but it wasn’t until half-time that they believed it. We were far better in the second half though, and although our extra goals came late we deserved them because of our pressure." It seemed that it would be plain sailing for England when Bird opened the scoring, the Fulham winger floating in a deep free-kick which slipped through the hands of goalkeeper Lavinia Lefterica and into the roof of the net. But though they maintained the upper hand after taking the lead, Marley’s team did not go close to scoring a second goal until Everton midfielder Amy Kane’s 30th minute free-kick was deflected on to the near post. Captain Katie Holtham and Birmingham City midfielder Karen Carney then both missed chances when well placed inside the penalty area as England completed a frustrating first half. It was a similar story after the break, with England retaining control but an increasingly confident Romanian side defending stoutly while always on the lookout for breakaway attacks. Arsenal striker Sanderson almost added a second goal just after the hour, striking a 12 yard shot which was well saved by Lefterica, then Bird sent a 70th minute angled drive against the near post. As the pressure mounted Bristol Rovers midfielder Holtham had a close range effort cleared off the line, then Sanderson was denied by Lefterica’s brave, point blank save in the 81st minute. Marley’s team continued to press for a second goal but they had to wait until the final minute, when Parry’s rising drive from 15 yards rocketed into the roof of the Romanian net. And three minutes into stoppage time they gave the scoreline a more realistic look when Sanderson turned to direct a 20 yard shot into the bottom corner and edge England ahead of Wales at the top of the group. Now they meet their UK neighbours in the group decider and Wales manager Andy Beattie said: "The pressure’s off us now we’ve qualified for the next round so we’ll have a good crack at it on Saturday. "England will be favourites and it might be a bit like our game against Bulgaria, only this time with us doing the defending and aiming to hit on the break. The girls are looking forward to it though, and we’ll give it our best shot." Marley said: "We’re happy to have qualified for the next round but we want to continue our unbeaten run and finish at the top of the group. We’re about to come up against a tough Welsh team and it will be an interesting game. "Our players are familiar with the Welsh girls so there won’t be a surprise element, but to get the result we want we’ll have to go into the game totally focused and keep it that way for 90 minutes."

England 3-0 Romania Bird 6 Parry 90 Sanderson 90+3

England U19s kick-off European qualifying campaign

Pictures ©2004 Female Soccer Ltd England secured their place in the next round of qualifying for the UEFA U19 Women’s Championship by beating Wales 2-0 at the South Leeds Stadium on Saturday. The victory earned England top spot in their First Stage Qualifying Group, maintaining a 100 per cent record. England had beaten Bulgaria 6-0 and Romania 3-0 earlier in the week as they hosted the first wave of qualifiers in the Yorkshire region. England will now face a Second Group Qualifying Stage in the Spring – where they are likely to face a tough battle with three other nations including Norway to reach the European Finals in Hungary next summer. Goals from captain Katie Holtham (pictured left), of Bristol Rovers, and Arsenal striker Lianne Sanderson saw England see off the challenge of Wales, who finished in second place and also qualified for the next stage. England had been cheered on from the stand by The FA Chairman Geoff Thompson. Coach Mo Marley (pictured right) said: “The First Stage of qualifying is good for introducing new players and getting as many players to earn three more caps, with the experience that those games bring. This Stage is the basis of how we will perform for the whole competition: we have played three different formations, played against teams who have come here to make it difficult for us to play, conceded no goals and there has been a spread of goals scored throughout the team.
