England Head coach Sarah Kelleher said; “This series of matches has been a very good test for us, giving us a great opportunity to work on key areas of our game. I am pleased with the results and know that our girls have a great team spirit, full of grit and determination ahead of our Euros campaign which start against Ireland on Sunday 24th July in Cork.”
