Cymru Cup returns to Dragon Park

Following a successful Cymru Cup last year at the new National Football Development Centre at Dragon Park, Newport, we stay south again this forthcoming bank holiday the 27th and 28th of May at the same venue. This 'phoenix from the flames' event has seen some excellent football games being played. This bank holiday will be 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 within an ever expanding programme of Talent Identification and Player Development.

Games will be played over a two day period and talented boys from all over Wales who were born in 2000 will be seen playing against each other and 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 regions across Wales.

In addition to the Academy Coaching staff in each team, there will be a WFT members of staff working alongside them providing guidance and support as the event develops.

Technical Director Osian Roberts, a previous player within the event said
“I know from personal experience the value of the Cymru Cup and would like to take this opportunity to thank key people such as Andrew Howard and Gus Williams for the coordinated arrangements to make this event happen, and also the FAW and the WPL Board, without whom substantial funding would not have been possible to hold such a prestigious event. Thanks also to all the officials who will take care of all the matches over the weekend - without their enthusiastic support and expertise we would have no games.”
