Paul Parry earns Wales call up

Last updated : 16 February 2004 By Michael Morris
Parry becomes the 9th City player to be called for international duty this coming week and his inclusion is a huge credit to the player and to Lennie Lawrence for giving him the chance to play at 1st Division level.

Parry becomes the 4th Welshman on duty for the game v Scotland at the Millennium Stadium, Earnie, Gabbidon and Weston the others. Neil Alexander is in the Scottish squad.

The other 4 players, Kav and Lee for Eire, Vidmar for Australia and Langley for Jamaica have all headed off for their respective countries get togethers ahead of a busy week of international friendlies.

It means that 7 of the 11 that started at the Hawthorns yesterday have been called for international duty with two of the bench as well.

Excellent achievement, lets hope thay all come back injury free.
