Staying with the club

Diane Caldwell would ordinarily have been called up by the Republic of Ireland but she continues to recover from injury and is hopeful of being available for United's next game against Aston Villa on Sunday 24 April.

Kirsty Hanson has unusually not been called up by Scotland.

Millie Turner has been on the fringes of the England squad in the last couple of years but remains sidelined. She is, however, progressing in training. Lucy Staniforth is a regular England call-up but misses out as she also recovers from injury. Kirsty Smith is in the same boat with Scotland.

Leah Galton, Hannah Blundell, Martha Harris, Sophie Baggaley, Jade Moore and Ivana Fuso will continue to train as normal with the club, while Aoife Mannion continues ACL rehab.
