Cumbrian trio Jarrad Branthwaite, Dean Henderson and James Trafford have all been named in England's provisional squad for Euro 2024.

Defender Branthwaite and goalkeepers Henderson and Trafford are included in Gareth Southgate's training squad ahead of the tournament in Germany.

The stars from Wigton, Whitehaven and Greysouthen respectively now have the chance to stake their claim for a place in the final squad.

For Everton's former Carlisle United defender Branthwaite it is a second Three Lions call-up after his selection in the squad for friendlies against Brazil and Belgium in March.

The 21-year-old is awaiting his first senior cap.

Henderson, meanwhile, returns to the England reckoning after returning to fitness and form with Crystal Palace in the Premier League.

The 27-year-old former Carlisle academy keeper has one senior England cap to date.

Burnley's Trafford also joins the goalkeeping ranks, the ex-United academy prospect having been promoted from the Under-21s to the senior squad for the Belgium friendly following an injury to Sam Johnstone.

With Henderson and Trafford making up two of the goalkeeping slots - Jordan Pickford and Aaron Ramsdale the others - it now seems certain that at least one Cumbrian will be in the final squad.

The Cumbrian duo are both included ahead of Nick Pope, Newcastle United's England keeper who has only just returned to action after injury.

Southgate's side are due to take on Bosnia & Herzegovina and Iceland in friendlies on June 3 and June 7 - the final squad for Euro 2024 will be confirmed on June 8.

The England boss has not confirmed whether the full 33 will be retained until after the Iceland game.

Some 33 players have been named in the training squad, with call-ups for players including Jarell Quansah, Curtis Jones, Eberechi Eze and Adam Wharton.

But there is no place in the squad for Marcus Rashford or Jordan Henderson.
