Airfield to host Wales' International Challenge Trophy International


The Football Association of Wales has confirmed that the Wales Semi-Professional under 23's will play against Poland in their final International Challenge Trophy group game at Airbus UK's Airfield on Wednesday 13th October.

The International will be third to be held by the FAW at the stadium since the inaugural match in March this year. In that game, the Wales Women's team played and lost a World Cup qualifier against Sweden. The FAW also took an Under 19 friendly to the much improved venue in Broughton, but lost to their Northern Ireland counterparts 1-0. Wales semi-professional manager, Terry Boyle will be hoping that his young guns can make it third time lucky and become the first Welsh team to win at the Airfield.

Wales and Poland met in a friendly match at this level just over twelve months ago at Carmarthen's Richmond Park and the visitors won 2-1 against an experimental Welsh team.

Poland drew their opening International Challenge Trophy game 0-0 with Portugal, but slipped to a 2-0 defeat in Coleraine last week against Northern Ireland. Wales let a 2-0 lead slip against the Ulstermen in their first game and drew 2-2 before losing 7-2 to an outstanding young Portuguese team in March. Wales can not claim the top-spot, but have an opportunity to qualify for the Semi-Finals as a best Runner-Up if the

Before the match in Broughton, Boyle's side have a warm-up friendly game against the old enemy, England at Mid Wales Leisure Latham Park.

The game is an important game against Paul Fairclough's England in the build up to the International Challenge Trophy game against Poland the following month. That match will be played on Tuesday 14th September 2010, 7:30pm.
