The Young Lionesses played three games across seven days in south Wales as part of round one of qualifying for next summer’s U19 Euros in Lithuania, advancing to round two by winning all three.
A hard-fought 2-0 win against Greece at the Cardiff International Sports Campus kick-started the qualification campaign as Guyatt – wearing the armband – and teammate Potter both played the full 90 minutes in the centre of the park.
Indeed, both players came close to breaking the deadlock as Potter saw a second-half effort whistle just wide and Guyatt rattled the woodwork, but in the end, late goals from Liverpool’s Mia Endersby and Sunderland’s Katy Watson proved enough to secure victory.
Next up, Guyatt played the first-half – again wearing the armband – and Potter the second, in a resounding 6-1 win over Wales at Dragon Park, the Wales National Football Centre.
After falling behind early on, England stormed into a 3-1 half-time lead prior to Potter's entrance – and the midfielder soon after made it 4-1 after collecting a pass from Poppy Pritchard and dispatching a shot over the ‘keeper and in off the underside of the bar.
And in their final group-stage game, against Czechia, Potter played the full 90 minutes – with Guyatt an unused substitute – as Amy Merricks' England team continued their 100 percent record with a 1-0 win in Cardiff, duly topping their group.
In round two, which will take place in early 2024, further mini-tournaments will decide which nations reach the eight-team Finals.
