JAYNE LUDLOW'S Wales will play their first match in Wrexham since 2012 when they face Estonia in a friendly on Friday, March 6 (7pm kick-off).

Estonia are managed by former Wales manager Jarmo Matikainen and it will be the fourth time the sides have faced each other.

Wales have had the better of previous encounters, emerging unbeaten with two wins and a draw.

The match is key preparation for Ludlow’s side ahead of the second half of the UEFA Women’s EURO 2021 qualification campaign.

Wales currently sit second in Group C with two key home matches against the Faroe Islands and Norway in April.

A return to north Wales for the national side is part of the FAW’s aims to grow the women’s and girls’ game across the country.

Rhiannon Roberts and Elise Hughes are two players from the area who have been a key part of the current qualification campaign.

Hughes, who was born in Hawarden and has won 11 caps for her country, is delighted that the national team is returning to north Wales.

"The news of the national team playing in Wrexham has really excited me," said Hughes, who is on loan at Bristol City from Everton and is also a coach at the academy in Connah’s Quay.

"Having grown up in the area, I really hope the fans turn up in their numbers and we inspire young girls to help the game grow in north Wales."

Tickets are priced at £5 adults and £2 for U16s and overs 65s.
