Rising Cumbrian goalkeeping star James Trafford helped England's Under-18s to victory against Poland.

The 17-year-old, from Greysouthen near Cockermouth, started for the young Lions as they earned a 5-2 victory in Opole.

It saw James, who is on Manchester City's books, pick up his second Under-18 cap of the season as he continues his rise through the international set-up.

The teenager is following in the footsteps of fellow Cumbrian Dean Henderson, who was on the bench for the full international side for the first time in the Czech Republic, having risen through his country's age groups.

Farmer's son James, who was with Carlisle United's Academy before joining Man City aged 12, has been named in Ian Foster's Under-18 squad for three internationals in the space of six days.

They next face Slovakia in Senec on Monday before a trip to Leobersdorf to take on Austria on Wednesday.

England's side in Poland also included Rochdale prospect Luke Matheson, who recently scored against Manchester United in the Carabao Cup.

Former Cockermouth School boy James is rated highly at City, where his under-18 team-mates include forward Liam Delap, son of ex-Carlisle, Derby and Stoke favourite Rory.

The young keeper played eight times last season for England's under-17s.
