Joy for Brooks but Lockyer misses out


Rob Page has announced his squad of 25 players for Cymru’s upcoming UEFA EURO 2024 qualifiers home to Armenia in Cardiff (Friday 16 June) and away to Türkiye in Samsun (Monday 19 June).

Bournemouth’s David Brooks has been selected for the first time following his recovery from stage two Hodgkin lymphoma in October 2021. Sadly though, injury has ruled out Luton Town skipper Tom Lockyer. The talismanic Hatter was stretchered off as Town overcame Coventry City in the Play Off final at Wemley.

Ben Davies and Brennan Johnson also return to the squad having missed the opening qualifiers in March due to injury, while defender Joe Low receives his first senior call-up.

Morgan Fox, Luke Harris and Liam Cullen are the three uncapped players in the squad.

Cymru had a successful start to the campaign in March, drawing to World Cup semi-finalists Croatia in Split with Nathan Broadhead scoring on his debut, and beating Latvia 1-0 at the Cardiff City Stadium thanks to a Kieffer Moore goal.

Rob Page’s side are currently second in group D, with Türkiye and Latvia sitting in the third and fourth places.

Limited tickets for the match against Armenia at the Cardiff City Stadium are available to purchase on the FAW ticketing website, with prices starting from £5 for juniors (16 and under). Cymru squad:

Wayne HENNESSEY (Nottingham Forest), Danny WARD (Leicester City), Adam DAVIES (Sheffield United), Joe RODON (Rennes- On loan from Tottenham Hotspur), Ben CABANGO (Swansea City), Chris MEPHAM (AFC BOURNEMOUTH), Joe LOW (Bristol City), Connor ROBERTS (Burnley), Morgan FOX (Unattached), Neco WILLIAMS (Nottingham Forest), Ben DAVIES (Tottenham Hotspur), Ethan AMPADU (Spezia- On loan from Chelsea), Joe MORRELL (Portsmouth), Jordan JAMES (Birmingham City), Dan JAMES (Fulham- On loan from Leeds United), Nathan BROADHEAD (Ipswich Town), Aaron RAMSEY (OGC Nice), Harry WILSON (Fulham), Ollie COOPER (Swansea City), Luke HARRIS (Fulham), Brennan JOHNSON (Nottingham Forest), David BROOKS (AFC Bournemouth), Liam CULLEN (Swansea City), Kieffer MOORE (AFC Bournemouth), Tom BRADSHAW (Milwall)
