WU19 Friendly Matches

Cymru v Northern Ireland

  • 16:00 Wednesday 15 September
  • 11:00 Saturday 18 September
  • Colliers Park, Wrexham

The match will be Cymru’s first WU19 match in almost two years as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Following inclusions in the senior team squad this year, Maria Francis-Jones and Bethan Roberts have been selected as they look to gain valuable game time, while Cardiff City Women striker and the top scorer of the Adran Leagues, Phoebie Poole, has also been selected. Amelia Forkings (Cardiff City Women) and Jessie Taylor (Port Talbot Town) will also be representing the Adran Leagues.

The camp will be the squad's final preparation ahead of the UEFA #WU19EURO qualifying round which gets underway in October. Cymru will face Albania, Moldova and hosts Andorra in League B Group 3 in Round 1.
