POSITIVE WEEKEND FOR WALES’ U18 GIRLS AHEAD OF EUROS SELECTION!
Returning yesterday from their three match test series against Ulster, Wales’ U18 girls can certainly feel proud of the performance they put forward. Having drawn their first and last games against their Irish counterparts, the squad will no doubt have left Wrexham, where they played out the series, feeling confident and positive in the lessons learned.
Although the girls lost the second match 2-0 to a physically strong Ulster team, Head Coach, Gwyn Williams saw the weekend as a great series overall:
Playing 3 games, in 3 days is tough but the group have learned a lot and it’s been great to see a number of them step up, becoming leaders. I’ve witnessed a profound sense of spirit from the squad this weekend, especially during the last match where the team came back from 2 goals down in the final half
The departure of some players after Friday’s game allowed others in the squad crucial opportunity to come through and experience exposure of the high-level match intensity; something Williams explains is crucial in the build up to selection for the Europeans this July.
