Strong Phoenix presence in NZ U-20 women’s training squad

Wellington Phoenix fullback Zoe McMeeken and 12 Phoenix academy players are attending a New Zealand U-20 women’s training camp in Auckland this week.

A 28-strong squad assembled at AUT Millennium on Monday.

McMeeken is one of three squad members who attended last year’s FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup in Costa Rica.

She made seven appearances for the Phoenix this season, after playing all but one of their matches in their inaugural campaign.

Aimee Danielli, Charlotte Eagle, Daisy Brazendale, Ella McMillan, Ella McCann, Georgie Furnell, Helena Errington, Lara Smith, Manaia Elliott, Marie Green, Nina Kondo and Rebekah Trewhitt are the academy players selected in the training squad.

The camp concludes on Friday.
