Near neighbours have provided five players of 16-man squad between them

Dagenham & Redbridge and Leyton Orient are well represented in the latest England C squad, with the clubs providing five players between them.

Fejiri Okenabirhie, Luke Pennell and Charlee Adams of Daggers, as well as O’s pair Sam Ling and Josh Koroma, will all link up with the non-league national team in May.

Daggers forward Mason Bloomfield has been named as a contingency player and can be called up should other players withdraw.

England C are due to play the FA of Ireland Amateur XI in Dublin on May 27.

The England C squad is selected from players aged 23 and under who play for clubs in the National League System

Okenabirhie, Adams and Ling all played for England C in their last game, a thrilling 3-2 win over Wales in March.

Daggers winger Okenabirhie netted all three goals for the non-league national team in that game and will hope to add to that tally in Dublin next month.
