Three Brentford B players have been named in the Wales Under-21 squad as the side begin their UEFA Under-21 Euro 2023 qualification campaign.
Fin Stevens, Joe Adams and Nathan Shepperd have all been included in the squad following their impressive displays for the young Bees over the course of the season.
Wales will play one match during the international period as they take on Moldova on Friday 4 June at Stebonheath Park, Llanelli. Kick-off is 7:30pm in South Wales.
The side have been drawn in Group E alongside the likes of the Netherlands, Switzerland, Bulgaria and Gibraltar, as well as the Moldovans who the team will be looking to beat in their opening fixture.
Fin, who recently won the Mary Halder Award for his fantastic first season, will join up with the side for the second time having been a part of a training camp in March this year. He played 90 minutes in a friendly against the Republic of Ireland Under-21s. The 18-year-old has made five First Team appearances this season and will look to gain further experience when he joins up with Paul Bodin’s squad.
It is yet another call-up for Joe as he will be looking to build on his recent scoring performance last time out with Wales when he netted against the Irish at Colliers Park back in March. The 20-year-old has been a key man for Neil MacFarlane’s side in recent weeks having also grabbed goals against Cambridge United recently.
This will also be the second time that Nathan has joined up with the Welsh at Under-21 level as he too played a part in their last fixture. The goalkeeper will be aiming for more minutes for his nation as they seek to become the first Wales Under-21 side to reach a major tournament.
The match can be viewed on S4C Clic and the Sgorio Facebook and YouTube pages, with Welsh language commentary.
