Wales earned a 2-2 draw in their C international clash against England in Salford on Tuesday night.

Goals from Barry Town United’s Kayne McLaggon and a wonder strike from Cardiff Metropolitan’s Adam Roscrow ensured honours ended even as Wales twice hit back to cancel a Nathan Peate own goal and Kurt Willoughby free-kick.

The Welsh squad included a strong Mid Wales contingent with no less than five players in the squad former pupils of Montgomeryshire schools, further underlining the important role of sport development in Powys schools.

Newtown Football Club’s Kieran Mills-Evans and Callum Roberts, educated at Llanfair Caereinion and Welshpool high schools, were joined by Caernarfon Town goalkeeper Alex Ramsay, a former Llanfyllin High School student and Bala Town’s Chris Venables who was educated at Llanidloes High School.

Matthew Jones of Aberystwyth Town completed Mid Wales interest in the Welsh squad with TNS star Aeron Edwards captaining the side.

Cefn Druids defender Peate steered Luke Trotman’s cross into his own net to give the English the lead before Ramsay was called upon to deny Willoughby.

However Wales were level at the break with Clayton Green’s free-kick headed home by Barry Town team-mate McLaggon.

Wales ended the half on top with Edwards’ header cleared off the line by Luke James and carried the impetus into the second-half with McLaggon squaring for Cardiff Metropolitan’s Elliot Evans who curled just wide from 18 yards.

England regained the lead on the hour with a quickly taken 30 yard free-kick from Willoughby catching out a rooted Ramsay

Wales rallied with substitute Roscrow forcing goalkeeper Ben Killip into action with Peate’s header cleared off the line by Dan Happe following the resulting corner.

Wales were soon level with a weighted ball from Venables releasing Roscrow to lash beyond Killip.

England had the best chance to snatch victory with Greg Olley rattling the woodwork as Wales survived a scare to claim a deserved point.
