C International announced for Caernarfon

The FAW and the English FA are pleased to announce that Cymru C and England C will meet for a third International Challenge Match encounter at The Oval, home of Caernarfon Town FC, on Tuesday 24 March 2020 with a 19:45 kick off. 

When the teams met earlier this year in Salford, the match ended in a 2-2 draw with goals from Kayne McLaggon and Adam Roscrow. England took the honours in 2018 with a 3-2 victory in Barry. 

Mark Jones and Owain Tudur Jones return to manage Cymru and will relish taking their squad to Caernarfon, which is a football hotbed. 

“We’re excited about playing this match at the home of Caernarfon Town,” said Mark Jones. “We know that not only the Cofis passionate fans will come out in support of the Cymru C squad at The Oval but all those in the surrounding area as well, and we can’t wait to bring international football to their doorstep. 

“This will be the third match between Cymru and England in as many seasons and I will be attempting to assemble a strong squad to give us the best possible chance in March.” 

Paul Fairclough, England C manager, added: "I look forward with great anticipation to the England C fixture against Wales.  In the last two seasons we have renewed our links with our friends from the FAW, resulting in this established annual fixture.

“The previous encounters have provided a feast of goals and entertainment for the fans of football. The technical quality outstanding. I am confident that we have another great game of football to look forward to."

Ticketing details for the match at The Oval will be released in due course.
