Corwen Football Club have launched a new shirt that pays homage to Fulham winger Harry Wilson, who started his career with the Denbighshire club.

Wilson was brought up in the town and his outstanding young talent saw him snapped up by Liverpool’s academy as a youngster. Wilson’s international debut at the age of sixteen in 2007 sparked national headlines after his grandad Peter Edwards scooped a staggering £125,000 having put £50 on Harry to play international football at his local William Hill bookmakers when the little was just eighteen months old.

Corwen’s new away shirt features a graphic of Wilson on the back as well as his initials and the inscription ‘Born to Play for Wales’. Wilson, who has yet to play for Fulham this term after suffering a knee injury in a behind-closed-doors friendly, was inspirational for club and country last season helping Marco Silva’s side storm to the Championship title and inspiring Wales to qualify for this winter’s World Cup.

Wilson, whose Corwen heritage is the subject of a popular song amongst the Welsh fans, has scored five goals in 39 caps for the senior side and is expected to be a key member of Rob Page’s side, who face England in the group stages of the tournament later this year.

Corwen FC’s Ian Evans said:

“Corwen FC are proud to release the Harry Wilson collaboration away kit for season 22/23. This really is a stunning bespoke kit and one we are all really proud of. We are taking orders now for this stunner and it’s on sale for £40 for all adult, sizes, kids sizes also available on request.”
