LONDON, Dec. 14 (AP):

AN ENGLISH soccer team will make an extended goodwill tour of the West Indies in May and June, the Football Association said yesterday.

A party of 18 players, a trainer and two officials will make the trip. The schedule calls for a match to be played in Bermuda, three in Jamaica, one in Aruba, one in Curacao and three or four in Trinidad.

Players will be selected in the Spring.

The Football Association also said a young England team — made up of professionals under 23 years of age — will make a tour of Italy and eastern matches are scheduled for Rome, Florence and Sienna.

The young England team to meet young Italy in London on January 19 will be named on January 16.
