CHARLES EARNS 2ND WALES U21 CAP

10 October 2015

Another international appearance for young attacker

- Jake Charles capped by Wales Under-21s
- Second appearance at that level for attacker
- HTAFC teammate Joe Wright an unused sub

Huddersfield Town attacker Jake Charles earned a second cap for the Wales Under-21 side on Friday evening.

The 19 year-old Academy graduate, who can play up front or as a winger, came on for the last 20 minutes in a UEFA European Under-21 Championship qualifier in Denmark.

Jake came as close to anyone as breaking the deadlock in the 0-0 draw, almost netting deep into added time at AaB’s Nordjyske Arena in Aalborg. 

Geraint Williams’ Wales U21 team remains undefeated in qualifying group 5 after the draw against the top seeded Danes, having already beaten Bulgaria and Luxembourg. The nation is currently third in the group behind Bulgaria and Romania, albeit with a game in hand and just two points behind. The top side from the six team group will qualify for the final tournament in Poland in 2017, whilst the runner-up could go into a Play-Off. 

The next qualifier sees Armenia visit Bangor on 13 November. 

Jake’s Town teammate, Joe Wright – who is currently on loan at Accrington Stanley – was an unused substitute for the Welsh. He has already been capped twice at Under-21 level.

Charles, who has scored once in five starts and one substitute appearance for Frankie Bunn’s Town Under-21 side so far this season, will now return to the Club ahead of Tuesday’s Professional Development League 2 game at Millwall.

Town's next home game vs MK Dons on 20 October is just £10 adult at the gates in most areas!
