Year 10 pupil Biggs – an Essex under-16 player – was invited to a national performance camp with the under-15 girls’ team, after impressing at two regional talent camps.

A squad of 30 girls were selected from across the country to play two friendlies with Switzerland under-16s, receiving guidance and support from FA technical staff.

The girls also took part in sessions that enriched their understanding of the technical, physiological, social and psychological demands of becoming elite players, with England claiming a 3-1 win in Zurich.

Frances Bardsley PE teacher Jessica Macnab said: ‘‘We are extremely proud of Maddie’s achievement and would like to congratulate her on earning the opportunity to represent the Lionesses and receive her first cap for the country.’’
