Paul Fairclough’s non-League Lions, who are represented by U23 players from clubs in the National League and below, will welcome the Red Dragons to Moor Lane on Tuesday 19 March 2019, kick-off 7:45pm.

A hat-trick from Fejiri Okenabirhie, then of Dagenham & Redbridge and now with Shrewsbury Town, inspired England to victory on Barry Island.

Ticket details for the Wales game will be made available nearer the time.
