First football memory

Winning an under 11s NWGFL football tournament with my bestie Amy Roberts (Pwllheli)

Football idol

Nemanja Vidic


Centre Back

Most memorable game played in

Not because of the result or performance but purely because how much the game meant to us as such a young squad. Beating Llanfair at home 1-0 last season. So much maturity shown. Quality performance.

Biggest highlight of football career so far

Kelly also wins outfit of the night, while in the background Ben Bolton launches into a duet with wife Gwenno

Last season I won Player of the season, Players player and Coach’s Player (Lenny Jones) which was flattering. This season, being the captain of Bethel Ladies FC (Hopefully doing a good job!)

Strengths to your game

I can read the game, I have good positioning and I can put a decent tackle in



Best team-mate played alongside

The highly talented Anest Roberts (left)

Amy Roberts (Pwllheli) played with Amy since we were kids, Very talented player! Anest Roberts, my centre half partner in crime! Top player and is always on the same page as me in every game

Best goal scored

I stop the goals I don’t score them

Hardest opponent faced

Kelly in action against Swansea City in the Welsh Cup. Bethel lost 4-0 but put in a great performance against the Welsh Premier leaders

Swansea City Ladies

Biggest influence in football

Aaron Jones-Evans (Bethel coach). He’s the one that got me back into football after some time away from the game. He always encourages me to improve my game and builds my confidence. He knows my strengths and weaknesses and works really hard improving each aspect of my game.

Funniest team-mate

Beca and Llio

Everyone, but, if I had to choose it would be “The Twins” Beca Dafydd and Llio Henshaw
