Young Notts County goalkeeper Tiernan Brooks has been given the chance to show his potential in front of national team coaches this weekend.
The Magpies stopper has been invited to attend an England goalkeeping development camp at St George’s Park for four days from December 5.
Brooks made a number of appearances for Ian Burchnall’s side in pre-season before heading out on loan to Northern Premier League East side Worksop Town in August.
The camp is designed to allow promising keepers the chance to show their potential and develop their skills whilst experiencing what life is like on international duty at the home of football.
Reacting to the call up, he told the club website: “I’m delighted with the news – it’s the sort of opportunity you dream about.
“I’ll be there from Sunday to Wednesday and it’ll be a mixture of training and physical tests.
“I’m looking forward to showing what I can do,” the 18-year-old said.
Despite representing the Republic of Ireland at junior levels, Brooks has shown a change in allegiance as he heads to the Three Lions camp this Sunday.
The news of Brooks’ call up comes just days after the National League side appointed Tom Weal as their goalkeeping coach following the departure of Jake Kean.
Weal was head of academy goalkeeping at Norwich City before arriving at Meadow Lane and his experience with youth players will hopefully only benefit Brooks’ development further.
Former attendees at the England development camp include Joe Hart, Jack Butland, Dean Henderson and current number one Jordan Pickford.
Carlisle United’s Scott Simons is another young keeper to have been selected.
