Big month for Wales youth teams
 Women's Football News 30 Sep 2016
Although Jayne Ludlow's senior side missed out on qualification for the UEFA Women's EURO 2017 finals, attentions quickly turn to the challenges facing the Wales Under-17 and Under-19 teams in October as the two teams head to Latvia and FYR Macedonia respectively to start their qualifying campaigns ahead of the 2017 finals. 
The Under-17 side take to the field first on 2nd October when they take on Turkey in Riga. The side then face the formidable challenge of holders Germany on 4th October before completing their Group Seven fixtures against host nation Latvia on 7th October.
The group winners and runners-up will progress to the Elite round of fixtures, along with the required number of third placed teams with the best record against the first and second-placed teams, to ensure there are 24 sides in the next phase. Spain have a guaranteed place in the Elite round as top seeds, while the Czech Republic automatically qualify for the 2017 finals as hosts.
The action continues in FYR Macedonia on 18th October when the Under-19 side open their Group Two qualifiers against Italy in Skopje. The side then face the Republic of Ireland on 20th October, before completing their fixtures against the hosts three days later.
The same procedure as the Under-17 tournament applies in order to qualify for the Elite round of fixtures, where the successful nations will join top seeds France, England and Germany.
The 2017 finals will be held in Northern Ireland. Meanwhile, success in the competition also offers qualification for the FIFA Under-20 Women's World Cup Finals that will take place in France in 2018.
The recent UEFA Women's EURO 2017 qualifiers has seen Jayne Ludlow introduce a number of young players into the senior squad, and these qualifying tournaments offer the perfect opportunity for the next generation to show their ability against quality opposition.
Last summer, Wales hosted their Under-19 qualifying group, and captain Charlie Estcourt has since progressed to become a regular member of the senior squad. Estcourt scored her first senior international goal in the 3-0 qualifying victory over Israel in Newport recently and is a clear example of the pathway that now exists for players to progress through the women's football system in Wales.
The squads are as follows: 
 Aimee WATSON   Bristol City   Grace THOMAS-PARR   Abergavenny Women
