Dan’s the man for Wales call to arms

Bangor Mail - - SPORT -

TWO Ban­gor City play­ers are in­cluded in the Wales C in­ter­na­tional squad to face Eng­land C in a friendly match this month.

Dan Gos­set and Guto Wil­liams are in the party of 20 set to take on the English at Jen­ner Park in Barry on Tues­day, March 20.

Man­ager Mark Jones has se­lected a squad of 18 play­ers from the JD Welsh Premier League, plus two oth­ers that will train with the group in camp be­fore the game.

Ban­gor’s Gos­set, who has re­ally stood out in his sec­ond econd sea­son at the club with his com­posed per­for­rmances in mid­field, is a wor­thy choice in the squad.

Join­ing the mid­field ace is team-mate Wil­liams, a young de­fender called up as one of the two play­ers to train with the squad d along­side Prestatyn yn Town’s Noah Ed­wards.

Noah is not the only mem­ber of his fam­ily in­volved, ld as brother Kai has also been se­lected from Con­nah’s Quay, along­side de­fen­sive part­ner Mike Pear­son and mid­fielder Jay Owen.

Cefn Druids’ Naim Ar­san is no stranger to wear­ing the red of Wales, hav­ing rep­re­sented his coun­try in Fut­sal.

He has im­pressed in a Druids side that de­fied many pun­dits pre­dic­tions to finish in the top six as the league split in Jan­uary and now gets his chance with Wales C.

Bala Town stal­warts, goal­keeper Ash­ley Mor­ris and goal­get­ting mid­fielder Chris Ven­ables, who have more than 500 WPL ap­pear­ances be­tween them and were both part of last year’s Welsh Cup win­ning side, also make the Wales C squad.

Two at­tack­ing op­tions at Mark Jones’ dis­posal will be Aberys­t­wyth Town’s John Owen and Llan­dudno’s Toby Jones, both of whom have been in crack­ing form for their clubs of late.

North Walian Owen has pre­vi­ously played for Ban­gor, Rhyl and Llan­dudno, while Jones has shone brightly for Tudno this term, hav­ing been one of the Welsh Premier Player of the Month nom­i­nees for Jan­uary.

The rest of the squad is made up of play­ers from South and mid-Wales clubs, as well as The New Saints.

For­mer Swansea City and Wales mid­fielder Owain Tudur Jones, who be­gan his ca­reer with Porth­madog and Ban­gor City, is as­sist­ing Mark Jones in man­ag­ing the Wales C squad.

Tick­ets for the game are avail­able on www.faw.cymru/tick­ets and from the club­house at Jen­ner Park. The game will also be streamed on­line by S4C on the Sgo­rio Face­book page and the S4C web­site.
