St. George’s on lockdown

THE FOOTBALL Association were last night forced to make alternative accommodation and training arrangements for its England players following the outbreak of a stomach virus at St. George’s Park.

The Under-21s side, who have been at the site since Sunday, have been unaffected but moved as a precaution, while the senior team will not meet at the venue as planned.

A statement read: “These proactive steps have been taken by the FA as a precautionary measure.”
