The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

ENG­LAND boss Mark Samp­son ad­mits he is rel­ish­ing the thought of a re­turn to his roots when the Lionesses take on Bos­nia & Herze­gov­ina as part of their Euro 2017 qual­i­fy­ing cam­paign in Novem­ber.

The for­mer Bristol Academy man­ager will be a spe­cial guest at his old club for their cru­cial clash with Birm­ing­ham next week, and will take part in a Q&A ses­sion with the club’s fans.

“I’m ex­cited to be go­ing back to Bristol and it will be great to meet some of the fans who sup­ported us in Canada,” said Samp­son.

“It was a mem­o­rable tour­na­ment for all of us, but now we want to fo­cus on the fu­ture and what will be a big game at Ash­ton Gate.”
