West Bromwich Albion management are buzzing after George Thorne's England U19 call-up.

Thorne has become the first Albion player from the club's Academy to be called up by England Under-19s.

Baggies Academy manager Mark Harrison told the WBA website: "This is a great reflection of the progress George has made from Under-17s level to Under-19s.

"It indicates he is making the transition from youth-team football to first-team football.

"And it shows how highly those in the England set-up think of him."
