Six of our TNS FC Academy youngsters were involved in international action recently, with players selected for both the Wales Under-18s squad, as well as representing England Colleges.
For the second season in a row, Harry Bower travelled with the Colleges to Italy, as his side took part in an international tournament.
For Wales, it was an experience closer to home, as the under-18s side hosted the Republic of Ireland in matches at Cefn Druids and Bala Town. Lewis Dutton, James Rutter, James Parry, Aaron Lloyd and Tai Jones were all picked in the squad for those games.
We caught up with the six, as well as Head of Performance Phase, Steve Benyon, at Park Hall last week, to find out more about their experience. Hear their thoughts in the video below.
