Chester-born Tom Heaton has been included in a 26-man England squad for Euro 2016.
The Burnley captain, who attended Upton-by-Chester High School, is one of three goalkeepers named in the squad along with Manchester City's Joe Hart and Southampton's Fraser Forster.
Heaton, 30, has still to win his first cap for the Three Lions but has been in outstanding form for his club this season, keeping 20 clean sheets as the Clarets secured the Championship title and promotion to the Premier league.
He will link up with the squad at at St Georges’ Park on Wednesday ahead of the friendly against Turkey at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester five days later.
England will then face Australia in Sunderland and Portugal at Wembley before heading to their base in France for Euro 2016.
Having named an extended squad, Hodgson has until May 31 to exclude three players for the start of the tournament.
Heaton, whose mum Joan and dad Dave live in Guilden Sutton, began his career with Manchester United, whom he joined as an 11-year-old.
He was loaned to six different clubs during his time at Old Trafford before moving to Cardiff City in 2010 and then Bristol City.
Heaton joined Burnley - the club his dad supports - in summer 2013 and played a key role in helping the the Turf Moor club secure promotion to the Premier League.
Although the Clarets were relegated at the end of last season, Heaton signed a new three-year deal at Turf Moor last summer and helped them make an instant return to the top flight this season.
Last month he was named in the Professional Footballers Association Championship Team of the Year.
