They were competing in a European U21 Tournament in Ploufragan, France, much to the delight of the new Development Squad coach Wayne Burnett.

"I’m really pleased for the boys, the staff have also worked incredibly hard but what we have to remember is that these players have been developed over the years and I think a special mention should certainly go to Ugo and Matt Wells. 
“Justin Cochrane (Under-23 Assistant Coach) and I have been with them for the last month or so, but they’ve had a really excellent development programme before we got here, so a special mention should go to those two because they’ve been a big part of these players’ development, for sure. 
"Everyone was mindful of that, we had a minute’s silence in memory of Ugo before the game and I think it’s fitting – the players will have been thinking of him, so it’s a nice moment to lift the trophy.”

The Player of the Tournament was awarded to 18-year-old (19 next March) Keanan Bennetts. He has played for Germany Under-15's (2 caps) before switching to England Under-16's (4 caps) then England Under-17's (4 caps).
