Smallcombe and Ampadu to play for Young DragonsExeter City are delighted to announce that Academy duo Max Smallcombe and Ethan Ampadu have both been called up to the Wales Under-16 squad ahead of a friendly international against France this week.
The news follows hot on the heels of the recent England Under-20 call-up for Matt Grimes and Christy Pym, who also came through the ranks at the Academy.
Max stepped up to the under-16 level at the Academy this season, while Ethan has just entered the under-14 age-group at the Cat & Fiddle, and will be playing with and against players up to 21 months older than him.
Wales Under-16s will play two fixtures against France Under-16s, on Tuesday 23rd September (7pm) and Thursday 25th September (6pm). Both games will take place at the FAW’s National Football Development Centre at Dragon Park, Newport.
