AIRBUS youngster Zebb Edwards has been selected for the Wales Under-18 Academy squad which has upcoming fixtures against the Republic of Ireland at Bala on February 21 and at Newtown on February 23.

The 17-year-old midfielder was promoted to the first team squad in 2015, signing a pro contract in the summer of 2016, and has already made 10 appearances in the Welsh Premier League.

Zebb is one of four brothers to have all played in the WPL - Noah (now with Prestatyn Town) and Zyaac (Rhyl) were both with the Airbus Under-19s and represented the first team, while older brother Kai, who is currently with Gap Connah's Quay, has also played for Prestatyn, Neath and TNS.

Wales Under-18 boss Mark Pike, who is now assisted by Steve Evans, says: "We've looked at over 150 players and now we're down to the last 18, hopefully they do well over the two games.

The full squad is: Iwan Roberts (Carmarthen), Oliver Farebrother (Aberystwyth), Tyler Aylward, Jordan Pike (both Port Talbot), Owen Williams (Merthyr), Daniel Roberts (Rhyl), Daniel Slawson (TNS), Zebb Edwards, Michael George (Barry), Aron Hughes-Jones (TNS), Daniel Williams (Pontardawe), Sam Haddon (Connah's Quay), Andrew Vale (TNS), Harri Horwood (Aberystwyth), Jack Todd (Afan Lido), Cameron Keetch (Cambrian), Sam Ashworth (TNS).
