Max named in Wales U18 squad

Created on 13/03/2021 @ 09:17


The Wales U18 team is set to play its first match for 20 years at the end of the month, and Welshpool teenager Max Williams has been named as one of the two goalkeepers vying for the No. 1 jersey.

The squad get-together and friendly against England will also coincide with Max’s 18th birthday, and comes during a busy period for the Salford City star who is approaching the end of his two-year scholarship with the League Two side.

Max is one of a number of players named who were in the successful team that qualified for last season’s UEFA U17 Euro Elite Round, which was cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The side will be managed by Rob Edwards, with players moving into the U19 setup for the 2021/22 season.

The U18 set-up has been relaunched to align with changes to UEFA’s tournament structure and to increase game time for age group international players.

The last U18s match was a 2-0 win against Latvia in October 2000. The side was managed by Neville Southall and Wales international Jermaine Easter was on the scoresheet.

The Wales v England match on March 29 (KO 12:00) will be shown live on the FAW Facebook and YouTube channels.
