Female Football Focus 2020: Jess Mills (NFA)

Jess Mills of NFA

This young talent had an amazing game for NFA against Llanberis on Sunday.
Left wing-back Jess Mills almost ‘did a John Barnes’ when she ran from her own half, took on the whole defence, and fired off a shot which unfortunately for her was saved.
The 16-year-old comes from a well-known footballing family, with sisters Yasmin and Ashleigh having both played in the Welsh Premier League.
