Jake Van Schie, Callum Cross, recent FC Nomads signing Jake Leonard, Iwan Rogers and Jake Jones are all included in the squad this coming Wednesday at Cardiff Met’s Cyncoed Campus ground.
Wales Colleges’ U18 side have a home nations clash against England on 2 February, and will play in the Rome-based Caput Mundi Tournament. For these fixtures, they’ve selected joint Nomads and Coleg Cambria scholars Conor Harwood, George Coulton, Joe Sullivan and Sam Haddon with team mate Craig Chisholm on standby to join them.
With nine players selected, Nomads will be the best-represented Welsh club at Wales’ international level in a landmark achievement for the Deeside-based club’s expansive youth programme.
