England to host Four Nations cup
England are to host the Four Nations tournament this summer with Eastbourne Borough, Worthing FC and Bognor Regis Town chosen as the three venues.

The 'Non-League home internationals' are to be staged between 23-27 May with England defending the title they won last season in Ireland.

"The Four Nations is a fantastic tournament," said England National Game boss Paul Fairclough.

"I can select the very best players from outside of the Football League,"

Fairclough added: "There is a huge amount of talent in Non-League at present and I'd like to think that my squad will contain a mixture of promising young talent, and some experienced heads.

"One thing is for certain though, there isn't a bigger honour in the game than being asked to represent your country," Fairclough added.

All three of England's games are to be staged at Eastbourne's Priory Lane ground.

Tournament Schedule:

23 May: England v Ireland - Priory Lane, Eastbourne Borough (7.45pm)

23 May: Wales v Scotland - Nyewood Lane, Bognor Regis Town (7.45pm)

25 May: England v Wales - Priory Lane, Eastbourne Borough (7.45pm)

27 May: Ireland v Wales - Victor Gladwish Stadium, Worthing (12.30pm)

27 May: England v Scotland - Priory Lane, Eastbourne Borough (4.00pm)
