Football: City's second-string wait on opposition.

CARDIFF City will find out on Tuesday which teams they will face in the 2003-2004 reserve league.

There are 22 clubs entered in the Football Combination - and several options for the playing format.

City's choice would be to stay the same as last season with all 22 clubs in one league, playing each other either home or away.

But some clubs are concerned with the amount of travelling and have proposed two or more regions.

The 22 clubs are AFC Bournemouth, Brentford, Brighton, Bristol City, Bristol Rovers, Cambridge United, Cardiff City, Cheltenham Town, Colchester United, Crystal Palace, Gillingham, Luton Town, Millwall, Northampton Town, Norwich City, Oxford United, Plymouth Argyle, Queens Park Rangers, Reading, Southend United, Swindon Town and Wycombe Wanderers.

# WALES have named eight Cardiff City players for their tri-nations under-15 soc-cer squad. The tournament is to be held in Wrexham from Thursday, June 20, with Ireland and Scotland providing the opposition.

This Welsh squad will then go forward for the Victory Shield tournament against England, Scotland and Ireland next season.

Kyle Bassett, from Newport, was among the Bluebirds players selected, but he is away on holiday and cannot attend.

The other seven City players are Dominic Dwyer (Cardiff), Darcy Blake (Tredegar), Tyron Toppar (Cardiff), Scott McCoubrey (Swansea), Curtis Mcdonald (Cardiff), Greg Coombes (Rhondda) and goalkeeper Scott James (Newport).

# CARDIFF City players have been nominated for two awards during the FAW Trust presentation evening at the Vale of Glamorgan Hotel and Country Club tonight (Friday).

Kyle Morris, 16 and from Maesteg, is among those nominated for the boys player of the year award.

And Katie Daley, 17 and from Llanrumney, has been nominated for the girls title.

Midfield player Morris was spotted by Cardiff City at the age of 10 and is now playing in their under-17 team.

He has made six appearances for Wales at junior level.

Welsh senior international Daley is a key member of the Cardiff City ladies team who won the Welsh Cup, beating Bangor City in the final 1-0, to qualify for Europe.

There is a third Cardiff nomination during the evening, for a lifetime achievement award.

That will go to George Griffiths, who has been an official of the Cardiff Schools Football League for 42 years.

Griffiths helped launch the careers of John Toshack and Phil Dwyer, among others, when they were youngsters in the capital.
