The two teams were scheduled to meet in March 2020, but the game was postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The last clash at the Peninsula Stadium in Salford in 2019 saw the two teams play out a 2-2 draw, while England earned a 3-2 victory at Barry Town United’s Jenner Park in 2018.

Mark Jones, who has taken charge of the previous two fixtures in the Cymru C hotseat, will once again oversee proceedings in Caernarfon. 

Jones said: “After missing out on this occasion in 2020 due to the pandemic, we’re more excited than ever to be welcoming England C to The Oval. 

"It will be a fantastic occasion in what will be a momentous week for Welsh football.”

England C Manager, Paul Fairclough, said: “We are really pleased to confirm that we’ve accepted an invitation to play this fixture against Wales C.

"The last two encounters between the two sides have provided plenty of entertainment and a platform for the players to progress their careers, so we’re looking forward to what should be an exciting game for all involved.”
