Following a successful Cymru Cup last year in Aberystwyth, the journey continues south this forthcoming bank holiday 27th and 28th of May into the brand new National Football Development Centre ‘Dragon Park’ in Newport. This ‘phoenix from the flames’ event has seen some excellent football games and moreso some extraordinary football being played. This bank holiday is by no means an exception.
The showcase event will involve three teams from the Welsh Premier Academy system and a combined regional team from both North and South squads who meet regularly throughout the year. This festival of football sits inside an ever expanding programme of talent identification and player development.
Playing games over a two day period, talented boys from all over Wales who were born in 1999, will play against each other and be coached by up- and-coming Academy coaches who have selected squads based on the talent involved within the Academy system from each of the North, Central and South areas across Wales.
In addition to the Academy Coaching staff in each team there will be WFT members of staff working alongside them providing them with guidance and support as the event develops.
