York City RTC discovery Jess Park has helped send England Under-17s to the European Championship finals in Lithuania.

The sixteen-year-old produced a spectacular opener for the Lionesses as they triumphed 2-0 against Norway at the Klepp Stadion.

Park had earlier begun the season by scoring nine times in five games while skippering York City’s Regional Talent Club Under-16s.

She also included blasting a superb hat-trick for England during an emphatic 10-0 Euro 2018 qualifying triumph against hosts Latvia, before then netting twice in an accompanying 3-0 win over Scotland.

That brought her a dream move to WSL1 winter champions Manchester City in October, and incredibly within seven weeks her senior debut when replacing England international Izzy Christiansen during a 3-2 Continental Cup success against Doncaster Rovers Belles.
