Which clubs have you played for?

Llangoed and Menai Bridge seniors, Llangoed and Llandegfan juniors.

How do you feel this season is going – both personally and for Llangoed?

Personally, at the moment it’s going well, could also be better, scored a few goals and on course to beat my most for Llangoed in a season.
The season is going good for us as a team, obviously always room to improve. A few games we could’ve done better and come away with a win but we will finish the season strong; we’re still in the cups so hopefully we can kick on and get a couple of trophies.

What benefits has manager Mark Thomas brought to the club?

I think having a manager who has done it all himself – he’s played at the highest level possible here throughout his career – can only be a good thing for us. He wants the best for the club and the players. He wants us to play to a certain standard and we’re all coming together to do that. Also think the mixture of youth and experience has helped a lot, we’ve got some fantastic youth players in the squad now and in the Juniors also coming through.

What do you think the team is capable of achieving this season?

Another goal for Wayne

Personally think we are capable of a couple trophies, there’s no reason why we can’t, we’re as good as anyone on our day. Of course we also want to finish as high up as possible in the table.

Which team you have played so far has impressed you the most?

It’s got to be Bangor 1876 but that’s for obvious reasons. It was kind of expected, but they’ve got some experienced players and also a few good young lads.

What honours have you won in the game?

Llangoed’s top scorer moves in on goal

Club wise Dargie Cup, Lucas Oil and Bwlch Car Boot Trophy – plenty of time for more!
Myself I’ve had the top scorer for the club a couple of times. Last season was probably my best as I had managers player, players player, most assists and most man of the matches.

Best game ever played in?

Has to be the Dargie Cup Final when we won 5-0 v Valley, think most players on the island like to win that trophy.

Most goals in a game/in a season?

Most goals in a game is 5 and the most goals in a season is 26.

Describe your best ever goal

Wayne produces an acrobatic effort

My best ever goal was probably in a final Nantporth v Bro Goronwy, left footed around 25 yards out. Unfortunately we lost in the last minute of extra time!

Ambitions in the game?

I just want to win as much as possible with Llangoed, I wouldn’t want to go anywhere else, I’m happy here and I’ll be here as long as I’m wanted.

Best country visited?

Cyprus. I haven’t been to many!

Finest after-match venue?

The Bold Arms

Favourite TV programme?

Probably Prison Break was my favourite. Not currently into anything.

Have any members of your family achieved anything notable in sport?

Not that I know of!

Who’s the funniest character in the dressing room at Llangoed?

Probably Nick Williams or Charlie Mckenna when they’re there.

Do you visit the gym? If so, what is your favourite piece of equipment?

Don’t go to the gym haha

How do you feel Ryan Giggs is performing so far as Wales manager?

Decent job so far – see how we get on in the summer!

Are you involved in any other sports apart from football?

Honestly don’t really pay attention to other sports much, always been football for me. I watch boxing occasionally but not involved in any others myself

Who is your favourite boxer and why?

Tyson Fury. His story is fantastic after battling all his addictions and so on, don’t think there is any better at this moment in time.
