NATHAN Broadhead has received a call-up to the Wales senior squad for their upcoming international games.

The former Bangor City Academy player has scored 13 goals in 26 appearances for League One club Sunderland this season, and is poised to make an impact in their Playoff Semi-Final tomorrow.

The Welsh national side, managed by Rob Page, will face either Scotland or Ukraine in their World Cup qualifier next month after the game was delayed due to the ongoing war with Russia.

The call-up represents a brilliant rise for the Bangor man, whose grandfather Tony Broadhead was a powerful striker for Bangor City, becoming one of the most popular players to have worn the blue shirt.

Nathan Broadhead’s own path began as a child at Llanfair Hot Shots, and was soon asked to go on trial for Bangor City Academy.

From there, he was spotted by Wrexham’s academy, before making the big move to Everton.
