Boothroyd to take charge of England U21s

Aidy Boothroyd

Former Watford and Coventry manager Aidy Boothroyd will take charge of the England Under-21 team for their final two Euro 2017 qualifiers.

The Under-20 boss replaces Gareth Southgate, who will look after the senior team for their next four matches after the departure of Sam Allardyce.

A point in Kazakhstan on 6 October will be enough for the Under-21s to secure a spot in next year’s finals in Poland.

Their final group match is at home to Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Boothroyd’s assistant coach Paul Williams will take charge of the Under-20s on an interim basis.

Boothroyd has coached the England Under-20 side since 2014.
