FA raking in money thanks to popularity of England junior teams

England's junior teams are proving a big hit with local fans.

The Daily Express says the FA's willingness to offer cut-price viewing to junior games is paying off.

Next week's England Under-19 friendly against Denmark at Brighton is already a 23,000 sell-out.

At a recent Under-16 game at Cheltenham, the 3,500 crowd outstripped the attendances the home side can manage in League Two.

And, at £3-a-head for adults and a 'quid-a-kid', long may that continue.
