Yeovil Town’s on loan defender Owen Bevan has been called up by Wales Under 21st for a training camp ahead of an upcoming fixture.

Bevan, who joined the Glovers from Bournemouth after the departure of Alfie Pond will link up with his international squad later this month.

Bevan will head to the Vale of Glamorgan on Wednesday 21st September and will be hoping to catch the eye before the coaching staff pick their team for the game in Vienna, Austria on Tuesday 27th September.

Bevan told “I’ve been hoping to get involved with the under-21s for a while and I’m delighted to have been included in the training camp. I’m looking forward to showcasing what I can do.

“We’re training for the first three days and there’s a game on the Saturday when I think a few of the first-team coaching staff are going to be watching so, hopefully, I can impress.”

His participation for the Glovers home game against Boreham Wood on Saturday 24th September is now in question.

The centre back played his first 90 minutes in the 1-1 draw with Eastleigh on Tuesday evening.

He also told he’s enjoying his time at Yeovil and working alongside an old team mate.

I’ve enjoyed working with Chris Hargreaves. They like to play football which is something I’ve done my whole life so I’m enjoying that.

“I knew Scrimmy (Jake Scrimshaw) had the option of going there before me so having him there has been good. It’s always nice to see a familiar face and we’re both enjoying it.

“I just want to play as many games as I can and get all the different experiences. I need to be playing men’s football, getting myself out there and working on different sides to my game.”

Congratulations to Owen on his first Wales Under 21s call up.
