Aidy Boothroyd delighted extending England U21 stay

Aidy Boothroyd has signed a new two-year deal as England U21 coach.

Boothroyd has signed a two-year extension to continue as England U21 head coach as he prepares for this summer's European Championship.

The former Watford manager said: "I'm delighted to sign an extension to my contract. I thoroughly enjoy this role working with excellent players, a fantastic group of staff and in an elite environment at St. George's Park along with the other national coaches.

"For me, it's been especially rewarding to see so many players go up to the seniors from our development teams, whether making their debuts or establishing themselves in Gareth's squads.

"This role is really about developing a group of players on and off the pitch that can help future England senior teams achieve success and I feel very privileged to continue doing so over the coming years."
