WHILE Ryan Giggs prepares the national team for the start of a new qualifying campaign next week, no fewer than five Barry Town United players will be on international duty in Giggs' home city, as the Wales C squad reconvenes for another crack at their English counterparts.

Kayne McLaggon, Jordan Cotterill, Robbie Patten, Clayton Green, Chris Hugh will travel to link up with Mark Jones and namesake Owain Tudor Jones' training camp in Manchester, immediately following Saturday's re-arranged JD Welsh Premier League meeting between Barry and Bala.

The ensuing C international between England and Wales, the second in as many seasons, will be played at the new-look Peninsula Stadium, home of National League promotion hopefuls Salford City, the club part-owned by Giggs and a host of former Manchester United teammates.

One year ago, the C Lions roared to success in a 3-2 thriller in Barry, with Fejiri Okenabirhie catching the eye with a match-winning hat-trick.

Striker Okenabirhie has since signed for Shrewsbury Town, netting eight goals in 25 appearances for Sam Ricketts' EFL League One strugglers.

As with last year, England boss Paul Fairclough has selected his squad from the top qualifying players under the age of 23 who play their club football in the National League and below, while Wales have chosen exclusively from Welsh-qualifying players in the JD Welsh Premier League.

With five inclusions in Jones' 21-man squad, Barry are the most represented club side from either of the nations, with Leyton Orient, Gateshead and AFC Fylde contributing most to the English cause, sending two players apiece to what seems a much-changed line-up from 12 months ago.

A number of Barry supporters are set to make the trip to Greater Manchester for Tuesday night's showdown, while S4C will be streaming the full 90 minutes via the Sgorio Facebook page, with kick-off at 7.45pm.
