A WREXHAM teenager has been selected to represent the Wales U’17 football team in Croatia this September.

Wrexham’s Charlotte Salisbury-Williams has made some impressive strides in recent years within the game and is now preparing to jet-off with the national side once again after recently returning from Florida with Wales - receiving a player of the match performance against the Dominican Republic.

The highly rated youngster started her career at Brickfield Rangers before signing a dual contract with Wrexham and The New Saints which saw her score four goals against Wolverhampton Wanderers, catching the eye of the West Midlands side: resulting in the Wrexham born teenager signing with Wolves.


The Leader:

Dad, Nathan said he was ‘so proud’ of his daughter and that the sky is the limit given the opportunities in the women’s game now.

“We’re just so proud of her. There are more opportunities than ever for Charlotte given the success of women’s football.

“Now she is off to Croatia to play for Wales in September, representing Wrexham.

“We recently got a report from Wales indicating she had the highest running speed of any player on the team which is a big credit to her.”

Charlotte recently found herself on the scoresheet against Aston Villa in the FA Plate final whilst playing for Wolves.
