Killip Called Up By England C

Ben Killip, Hartlepool United

Ben Killip has been called-up to the England C squad for their game against Wales C later this month.

The Pools keeper will be in the travelling party when the Three Lions’ C squad take on their Welsh counterparts at Caernarfon Town on Tuesday 24th March.

Killip has been a regular in the squad in recent seasons and will hope to gain another cap when Paul Fairclough’s men return to action for their latest friendly.

The news caps a good weekend for the 24-year-old, who saved a penalty during Pools’ 1-1 draw against Boreham Wood at Meadow Park on Saturday.

Killip’s Pools teammate Josh Hawkes has also been placed on the England C standby list and could be called-up if any players are forced to drop out in the coming weeks.
