Under-21s held to draw by Wrexham

The Under-21s were held to a 2-2 draw by Conference side Wrexham in their latest pre-season friendly at Landore.

Captained by midfielder Leon Britton, the home side found themselves a goal down after just three minutes as Lee Fowler's corner from the left was headed in by Connor Jennings.

The Swans almost drew level within a minute but Henry Jones saw a curling free kick come back off the upright.

But Jones wasn't to be denied as he found the net after 10 minutes, rifling a fine left-foot shot into the roof of the net after good work from Ryan Hedges.

And Hedges himself was involved shortly after as the home side went ahead.

The Wales Under-21 international - who recently signed a new three-year contract at the club - cut in from the right flank before lashing a fierce drive past the goalkeeper from 20 yards. 

A flurry of substitutions from both sides altered the flow of the game in the second period, but Wrexham earned a share of the spoils with ten minutes to play.

After a fine run from Wes York, his low shot was parried by Oliver Davies and Danny Reynolds was on hand to stab home the rebound from close range.

The Under-21s now look ahead to a week-long training camp in Holland where they will play three friendly matches before returning to South Wales for matches against Aston Villa Under-21s (August 1) and League One side Yeovil (August 4). 

SWANS U21s: Gregor Zabret (Oliver Davies, ht), Connor Roberts, Joe Rodon (Alex Gogic, 54), Keston Davies, Dan Alfei, Leon Britton (Tom Holland, 59), Henry Jones (Adnan Maric, 68), Kyle Copp (Sam Evans, 59), Ryan Hedges (Trialist, 68), Dan James (Stephen Fallon, 61), Owain Jones (Alex Samuel, ht).
