Wales have named a strong squad for the upcoming Cyprus Cup tournament - with Pembrokeshire duo Angharad James and Nadia Lawrence selected.

Wales are in Group A alongside Finland, Italy and Switzerland, and are hoping to improve on last year's sixth-place finish.

Captain Sophie Ingle will again lead a squad that includes centurion Jess Fishlock, while Helen Ward and Natasha Harding are also included. James herself, of Everton Ladies, is one of the most experienced players despite being just 23, having passed 50 international caps already.

Lawrence, along with Amina Vine and Alice Griffiths, will represent the Wales Performance Squad.

This will be the third successive year that Wales have competed at the tournament as Wales prepare for the remainder of their 2019 Fifa Women's World Cup qualifying group.

Ludlow's side are top of Group One after four games and are yet to concede a goal at the midway point ahead of a qualifier with England.

Wales face Finland in their Cyprus Cup opener, on Wednesday, February 28th.

Games follow against Italy, on Friday, March 2nd, and Switzerland three days later with the finals day on Wednesday, March 7th.
