They sit giggling like any other trio of young girls but such frivolity is borne more of a sense of relaxed confidence than a lack of appreciation of their task.
Rachel Unitt, Emily Westwood and Rachel Yankey are at peace with themselves, their team and the world. Life, it seems, is good.
On Thursday they will line up against the Czech Republic in the final warm-up match before the Women's European Championships and each one goes into the match ebullient.
And why not? England have an impressive record since August last year when they lost 2-1 against Russia. They then embarked upon an unbeaten run of nine matches including wins over Holland, Mexico, Portugal, Northern Ireland, Scotland and - most recently - Norway.
A goalless draw against China which ended with the Chinese winning 5-3 on penalties in the Algarve Cup was the only disappointment.
So spirits are high, morale is good and the collection of disparate players has become a closeknit squad. Ready to take on the best in the world.
They need to be. In the group stages of Euro 2005 they face Finland (June 5), Denmark (June 8) and Sweden (June 11). Beyond lie possible showdowns with Germany, France or Italy.
Yankey, at 26 not the oldest but certainly one of the most experienced players in the squad, acknowledged the difficult road ahead.
"Finland are first and that brings with it some difficulties but I think Sweden will be the hardest match [in the group stage]," said the Birmingham City striker and captain, who has recently been named the 2005 Nationwide player of the year.
One of five Blues players in the squad, Yankey has twice been the heroine of FA Cup finals. In 2003 she scored from a free-kick to help Fulham beat Doncaster Belles 2-1 and a year later she was player of the match when Fulham beat Charlton 3-0. She has scored on the international stage too including two against Portugal and one against Mexico in this year's Algarve Cup.
Such experience cannot be bought in the women's game but she only sees herself as 1/11th of a team.
"It does not matter if you have one cap or 50 [Yankey has 53] everyone just helps each other."
Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Westwood, the only player in the 20-strong squad from outside the Premier Division, may be asked to switch back to midfield for England but is not at all daunted at the prospect. Nor by the step up in pace that she is sure to encounter.
"The transition has been made easier because of the help I have had from all the other players,"
said the 21-year-old from Dudley, who missed 18 months of action after damaging the cruciate ligaments in her right knee in the Fifa Under-19 Women's World Cup finals in 2002.
" There was never any doubt that I would play again because I am passionate about the game although I knew it would be a long road back into the England side."
Westwood has so far resisted attempts to woo her away from Wolves and stresses it will be career-development rather than a handful of cash that tempts her in the future. Wolves only narrowly missed promotion and she would like to stay on to help them up next season.
"I have noticed the difference in the physical side of the game at this level. No disrespect to the Northern Division but the Premier League is much quicker."
In preparation for the fast pace and physical approach of some of the best sides in Europe, England head coach Hope Powell, pitted her girls against a Boys Academy side this week. To test their mettle.
Difficult to say who came of worst. The boys may have won 5-1 but Unitt, a 23-year-old born in Walsall but playing for Everton, insists: "We injured a few more of them!
"Obviously their strength and speed was better but, technically, girls are just as good as boys."
Unitt, whose father Terry is an assistant coach at Wolves, is a powerful left-back with a devastating left foot but admits her return of one goal in 44 caps is not as good as it should be.
Open about her ritual preparation in the dressing room - "shorts first, socks and then shirt . . . always that order" she agrees that England face a tough challenge.
"It will be difficult in the Euros. We have to get through the group stage which will be tough but the confidence in the camp is high."
She anticipates a large local following at Bescot on Thursday evening for the friendly against the Czechs. Home is less than a mile from the ground and she has already secured thirty of the sixty or so tickets she needs to satisfy family and friends.
"It will give local people a chance to see how far we have come since two years ago."
England's hopes have been bolstered by the news that star midfielder Katie Chapman has been passed fit for the tournament after undergoing surgery to repair a fractured left hand.
Powell said: "Katie's been given the thumbs-up and is in the squad.
"She has confidence in playing with the hand, which is the most important thing, and I think it's important she gets some exposure against the Czech Republic.
"There are a few other niggles with other players but that's only to be expected at this stage of the season and so, by and large, we have a fully-fit squad.
"But I don't want to single any one player out for special attention, because all 20 players in the squad are important. I want them all to be heroes.
"The Czech republic are a very physical side. We've had them watched a couple of times and at this final stage of our preparations they'll prove quality opposition."
