This is what their head coach, Keith Smith had to say about the matches;

The upcoming series kicks off a busy period for the U18 Women’s National Development Programme, with test matches against Poland, England and Ireland to follow, before we travel to the Czech Republic in July for the European Championships II.

We’ve only had limited amount of time together as a group so far, so these games against Wales will give us a chance to see how well-established some of our playing principles are, and to highlight areas in which we can continue to improve and develop.

As well as being an important part of our preparations for the Euros this summer, we’ll also be looking to use the Wales games to experiment with various aspects of our play in order to provide the players with valuable learning opportunities in a competitive, pressured environment.

Matches against Wales are always a tough test, and the squad are looking forward to the tackling the challenge in front of a home crowd.”
