Harry Clifton Targeting First International Cap For Wales U21

Grimsby Town midfielder Harry Clifton is eyeing his first international cap as Wales U21s prepare for their upcoming away friendlies against Albania (June 9 and 11).

The Town youth academy graduate, who scored three goals in 43 appearances for Michael Jolley’s side in 2018-19, has been called up by Rob Page ahead of the two games next month.

And the 20-year-old says he is now targeting his first cap for Wales U21 as they face Albania on Sunday, June 9 (5pm), and Tuesday, June 11 (3pm).

Speaking exclusively on iFollow Mariners, he said: “It’s exciting. I know it happened a few months ago with the training camp, but this time there are games, which I’m looking forward to.

“Obviously games are a bit different, and I want to make my debut, and even more so that it’s abroad.

“The next step is playing in a game and showing what I can do in a game, and hopefully there’ll be a good few chances to do that.

“It’s abroad against Albania – a team which is completely unfamiliar to me – so it will be a good experience.

“It’s away in Albania so it’s exciting, it’s a new experience for me, and I can’t wait to go.

“There are a few new lads on the squad list who I’ve not met before, and some who I’ve got used to from last time, so it will be a good mix.

“It’s good to know everyone’s different career paths, and levels of where they’re at, and I think we’ve got a strong team.

“So I’m looking forward to it – I want to train well and play in the games.”
