Nine players from the FAW Girls’ Academy system in North Wales have won international recognition.
They are among 19 members of the national Academy set-up selected as part of the 20-player pool for the upcoming UEFA WU15 UEFA Development Tournament in England.
Cymru will face England, Norway and Greece in fixtures taking place between Saturday 4 – Thursday 9 November.
Starting at the U15 level, UEFA’s youth development tournaments provide elite young players with the perfect opportunity to showcase their talents and gain vital international experience.
The FAW Girls Academy North girls chosen are:
Introduced in 2021 as part of the FAW’s strategy to develop clear and effective pathways for progression, the FAW Girls’ Academy increases the contact time with our elite girls and provides a competitive games programme for them to develop.
The change means that the FAW Girls’ Academy squads benefit from increased training sessions and tailor-made programmes based on the needs of the individual.
North and South Wales U14 and U16 girls’ regional squads also compete against elite boys, as the FAW Trust Girls’ Academy, in the Cymru Licensed Academy Games Programme.
