Wales may be about to have their first shot at World Cup glory in 64 years, but manager Robert Page, is already looking to a future built around the likes of Bennan Johnson. As Page prepares for the do-or-die play-off against either Scotland or Ukraine, he also has a mind on the younger generation. The caretaker boss - whose own deal with Wales only runs as far as the end of the World Cup campaign - has heaped praise on fit-again Kieffer Moore, and believes he can bring something different to the team, but has stressed the importance of preparing the younger players in the squad for the future of Welsh football.
"It's what we have been training for and preparing for a long time, so it’s both nerve-wracking and exciting.” Those are the words of Welsh rhythmic gymnast Gemma Frizelle as she and her team-mates prepare for a massive next three weeks. First up is the Rhythmic Gymnastics British Championships in Telford this weekend, followed a fortnight later by the Welsh Championships in Cardiff.
