Ashley Young in Under-21 Squad

Ashley Young has finally gained the recognition his performances last season have merited and has been called-up to the England Under-21 squad for the first time.

The Stevenage-born attacker - who was voted into the PFA Championship team of the year last season - has been selected by Peter Taylor for the 24-man squad to face Switzerland in a European Championship qualifier on Wednesday 6 September.

The versatile 21-year-old`s remarkable 2005/06 season saw him score 15 goals, the most memorable being a 20-yard curling free-kick to send Watford 2-0 up against Crystal Palace in the play-off semi-final.

Young has improved leaps and bounds under the management of Adrian Boothroyd and 2006 marks a meteoric rise up the football ladder for the former Academy player; making his Premiership debut and being included in the England Under-21 squad despite playing fewer than 20 first-team matches until this time last year.
