WEARSIDERS Jill Scott and Steph Houghton are going to the Olympics!
The two midfielders were named today in manager Hope Powell’s Team GB squad for the 2012 London Olympics.
It’s fantastic news for the two players who have established themselves as regulars in Powell’s England team.
Everton’s Scott and Arsenal’s Houghton feature in a squad dominated, as expected, by English players.
Scot Kim Little – a team-mate of Houghton at Arsenal – is expected to play a big part in Powell’s starting line-up.
Team GB Squad: Eniola Aluko, Anita Asante, Karen Bardsley, Sophie Bradley, Rachel Brown, Karen Carney, Ifeoma Dieke, Steph Houghton, Kim Little, Claire Rafferty, Alex Scott, Jill Scott, Kelly Smith, Casey Stoney, Fara Williams, Rachel Williams, Ellen White, Rachel Yankey. Reserves: Jess Clarke, Emma Higgins, Jane Ross, Dunia Susi.
