Date of Birth


First football memory

Cara pictured in her Caernarfon Town days. She joined the club from Pwllheli

I didn’t really start football properly until i was about 15, but I remember my first ever game for Pwllheli, coming on as a sub and scoring, and it ended up winning goal of the season

Football idol

Most memorable game played in

I can’t think of one, but I always enjoyed playing against Rhyl and Llandudno’s game v Cyncoed last year was a good one, beating them 5-3 away

Biggest highlight of football career so far

Playing in the Welsh Premier League

Strengths to your game

Probably my pace, and timing tackles.


Probably strength as I’m quite short and shooting as I’d love to score some more goals

Best team-mate played alongside

Ffion Owen

Hardest opponent faced

Cara (right) puts in a challenge for Llandudno against the mighty Swansea

Swansea City or Cardiff Met. They play some amazing passing football.

Biggest influence in football

My grandad, he comes to watch every game and will always phone me that night talking about the match and how I played. He was also a really good football player and has coached many teams.

Funniest team mate

Stacey Tradewell

Which team-mate is the best dancer

I’ve not yet got to see any of the Llandudno girls dancing. Maybe a night out will have to be on the cards so I can make my decision.

Favourite away ground

Swansea City

Personal football ambitions

Thanks for the idea Cara. I think I’ll have one of these later

It’s very hard to pick one, probably Chocolate Orange

Best film seen this year

Couldn’t think of a film but I’ve recently started to watch Shooter on Netflix and it’s amazing!

Are you typical of your zodiac sign

I don’t follow much about zodiac signs but every time I do read about my sign I always find that I relate to it so I guess I am!

Power on Netflix

TV show you dislike most

Something like the Kardashians

Best quality as person

I like to think that I am caring and will always put others first

Worst fault

Can never say no, and too trusting

I haven’t been to a lot of concerts but I went to see Sam Smith for my 16th birthday and he was amazing

Tell us something about you we might not know

I once met Chris Coleman outside Dragon Park in Cardiff and went up to him to ask for a selfie and as I was about to take the picture my phone went out of battery, so I ended up having to walk away embarrassed
