Female Focus: Maddie Williams (Llanfairfechan Ladies FC)
Maddie Williams of Llanfairfechan Ladies

Full Name

Maddie Roseanna Williams

Date of Birth

12th January 1996

First football memory

Being the only girl playing for the junior boys U7s.

Football idol

Guess who the No7 is?

Common answer I can imagine but it’s got to be David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo. Especially when they both played for United, Beckham was the reason I supported them. One of the reasons I always try and grab the number 7 as well.

Position

Maddie doing what she does regularly – scoring goals

CAM

Most memorable game played in

Definitely cap for Wales. But I’ll never forget playing any game against Bethel as a junior, always tough but exciting.

Biggest highlight of football career so far

Maddie and a young photobomber named Jack with a scooter!

Honour getting scouted for Wales at the age of 15. Having a 5 year break from the game, coming on for the debut comeback match at the age of 23, scoring a hat-trick resulting in my dad buying me new boots after losing a bet.

Representative football played

Llanfairfechan boys, girls, Wales U16, and now Ladies!

Strengths to your game

Maddie (back row, third left) with her Llanfairfechan team-mates and coaches

Shooting, skill and play.. always had a good head for the game.

Weaknesses

Not loud enough on the pitch. Stamina & fitness could do with a massive improvement.

Best team-mate played alongside

Maddie (right), with Rachel (left) and Kelsey (middle)

Too many to count over the years who I’m still friends with now. Loving playing centre mid with Lois (Thomas) again. But it’s great to finally get back on the field with Kelsey (Robinson) and Rachel (Evans) – just like old times.

Hardest opponent faced

Katie Midwinter (right) scored 25 goals last season for Bethesda

Katie Midwinter in recent game against Bethesda. Striker, skill was unbelievable!

Biggest influence in football

On a personal level I’d have to say my two main men, my dad & boyfriend. Dad’s always supported me from the beginning as a child through my teens even with a few years out in between, never missing a game. Boyfriend, Dewi again so supportive of me, Kelsey and Rachel starting up a team from scratch and he’s always proud of my performance.

Funniest team-mate

Kelsey Robinson, just have to catch eyes on the pitch and that’s it, gone.

Which team-mate is the best dancer

Not sure.. we’re quite new so yet to see who’s got the best moves.

Favourite away ground

Not played on many but Llanberis & Kinmel Bay have both got decent pitches. Can’t beat the Rec though.

Personal football ambitions

To never give the game up again for as long as I can. Always room to improve, especially fitness.

Tell us something about you we might not know

Absolutely love travelling. 5 months of Asia, Indonesia and the Philippians done so far and plans for plenty more, Canada next. Also a secret Leicester City fan at heart, love the atmosphere in King Power been visiting ever since I was a child. Manchester United was all a cover up.
