A TEENAGE footballer from Tattenhall has made his international debut.
Wrexham FC striker Louis Moss, 18, turned out twice for Barbados in big 2014 World Cup qualifiers earlier this month.
Although the matches he featured in – away to Guyana and a home clash against Trinidad and Tobago – both ended in 2-0 defeats, the former Bishop Heber High School student took something away from the experience.
Moss, who qualifies for Barbados through his mum and is the son of outgoing Wrexham FC owner Geoff Moss, said: “I went out to Barbados for 13 days and it was a fantastic experience.
“I came on as a substitute against Guyana and made my first start when playing against Trinidad and Tobago.
“Although the matches didn’t get us the results we wanted, it was a great opportunity and I am definitely glad I went.
“I am still very young and I hope there will be other chances for me to play for the national team.”
Having come on against Guyana in front of an energetic 4,500 crowd, Moss was given a place in the starting line-up for the showdown with a Trinidad side featuring former Wrexham winger Carlos Edwards and captained by Stoke City striker Kenwyne Jones.
Moss is now turning his attentions to domestic football, where he currently plays in the youth set-up at Wrexham.
He made his senior debut against Luton Town toward the end of last season, a match in which he also scored his first goal.
Moss said: “I still have time and regularly play for the reserves. I will hopefully get some starts and run-outs in the FA Trophy and other cup matches this season.”
