13 June 2022

Town players earn further honours for their countries

- Further international honours for Town players
- Pat Jones makes Wales Under-21 debut
- Brodie Spencer makes second Northern Ireland start

B Team winger Pat Jones made his Wales Under-21 debut this week as the latest set of international fixtures took place.

Jones came on as a 65th minute substitute as Wales continued their UEFA U21 European Championship qualifying campaign, losing 0-1 to the Netherlands.

Pat could earn a further cap on Tuesday 14 June, when Wales finish their campaign at home to Gibraltar.

B Team defender Brodie Spencer made a second successive start for Northern Ireland as they took on Cyprus at home in the UEFA Nations League. Spencer played the first hour in his nations 2-2 draw, almost bagging a goal himself! The 18-year-old got on the end of a Conor McMenamin cross at the back post, but saw his effort come off the back of an opponent.

Scott High played the full 90 minutes for Scotland’s Under-21s as they ended their UEFA U21 European Championship qualifying campaign with a 1-1 draw with Denmark.

Conor Falls earned another Northern Ireland U19 cap in Malta last Friday, coming on for the final half hour in a 2-1 win.

Jacob Chapman and Nicholas Bilokapic were both unnamed substitutes in Australia’s Asian Cup Quarter-Final in Tashkent. An own goal saw the Olyroos beat Turkmenistan 1-0 to advance into the last four!

Our Australian duo could earn a cap on Wednesday 15 June, when Australia’s Under-21s face Saudi Arabia in the Semi-Final.
