“This will make it a real spectacle for supporters. As a coach of Wales U18 and Wales U20, I’ve been lucky enough to witness first-hand the players coming through this pathway, and the success they’ve achieved at regional and international level. This tournament will undoubtedly feature the stars of the future, which is very exciting.”
