Attending ‘Kick It’ sessions after school in Felinheli
Most memorable game played in
The 2014 FAW Under-16 Girls Welsh Cup Final in Newtown (Caernarfon beat Llanyrafon 2-0 with goals from Lois Regan and Nel Huws). I had a stinker of a game and even came off with cramp towards the end but the girls were amazing.

Strengths to your game
Ability to read the game and range of passing
Always has been my fitness!
Best team-mate played alongside
Katie Davies (formerly known as Williams – ex-Liverpool and Wales, capped 20 times).
Hardest opponent faced
Cardiff Met. They’re unbelievably clinical.
Biggest influence in football
My dad is probably the reason I’m so into my football. He took me to every game and training possible when I was younger and still enjoys coming to see me play when he can.
Katie Bowe or Lisa Thomas. Katie comes out with some one-liners but I’ve known Lisa for years and we bounce off each other.
Which team-mate is the best dancer
I’ve not seen what Mountain Rangers have to offer yet but I would have to say Elena Julio based on what I saw playing alongside her with Caernarfon!
Favourite away ground
I suppose I can say The Oval. Although I’m yet to play there as a visitor.
Personal football ambitions
I just want to continue to enjoy playing the game, and help Mountain Rangers go on to win some silverware.
Best country visited
White chocolate. I used to love the Dream bars.
