As the England Schoolboys Under 18s squad put the finishing touches to their preparations for the start of this seasons Centenary Shield, Cornwall Schools FA are delighted with the interest and excitement building around the County.

With over 1400 tickets already sold and many more tickets being purchased on a daily basis, the first ever international fixture to be held in Cornwall certainly promises to be a well-supported occasion.

The fixture which is taking place on Friday 27 February 2015 at Truro City FC between England and Wales Schoolboys Under 18s, with a 7pm kick off forms part of the Cornwall Schools FA centenary celebrations.

There are still plenty of tickets available to purchase with tickets priced at £6.00 per adult and £3.00 per child (16 and under) with group bookings available for affiliated schools and clubs. Match tickets and enquiries are available by contacting Mr Alan Yendell at

England are the current holders of the Centenary Shield, which sees them compete against Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland and are hoping for a strong start against the Welsh which will hopefully be helped by a big crowd at Treyew Road.

It has also been confirmed that FIFA & Premier League Referee and FA Cup Final Referee Lee Probert will officiate the fixture with local young officials Ben Judd and Ciaran Barlow acting as his assistants.

Cornwall Schools FA spokesman Alan Yendell commented 'All the hard work is really starting to pay off and everything is coming together nicely. We would still love to have more people attend the game, it's a unique fixture where international standard players are on show alongside a top premiership official, it's not every day that you will be able to witness that at a Cornish football ground'.
