Here's the Wales U15 Girls squad selected to contest the 2019 Bob Docherty Cup

Wales U15 Girls head to Spain in confident mood as they compete for the 2019 Bob Docherty Cup.

 
Futbol Salou, Catalonia, hosts the annual home nations tournament, with Gibraltar joining the party for the first time. 
 
And, after beating Scotland and pushing Portugal in the build-up, Matthew Clement's team head to Spain with sights firmly fixed on bringing back the cup they won in 2017. 
 
The girls kick-off their campaign with a Monday morning match-up with England before facing Gibraltar on Tuesday. 
 
Wednesday's finale will be decided by league placings after the first two fixtures. 
 
Confident coach Clement said: "The matches against Scotland were a great introduction to international football, going to Portugal was a great experience of being away and facing a top team. 
 
"Off the pitch, we've worked hard on team-building and that's paid off on the pitch. 
 
"The Bob Docherty Cup is an important part of the process for these girls but the most important aspect for us is ensuring we get as many players as possible into intermediate teams. 
 
"They're on a journey, from regional football into international football and we're getting them ready for the elite rounds at U17 and U19 level."
