Highly-respected pair who both joined Airbus in 2018-19 after previously also playing for Northop Hall.

Defender Hana played at a high standard for LFC Foundation College when she had turned 16 and later was on standby for Wales Under-17 for the prestigious Uefa Tournament.

Despite struggles with injuries, she remains one of the North Wales League’s top defenders when fit.

Laura, 25, started her football with Mold Girls at the age of 8 before they became known as Northop Hall.

A central midfielder, she is highly rated for the immense quality of her passing, long or short range.

She won the North Wales League title with Northop Hall in 2017-18 and represented the club in the Welsh Premier.

Hayley Rees Williams and Leanne Rees Hughes (Pwllheli)

Two key members of the highly-popular Pwllheli squad.

Hayley is 29 and Leanne 27. Leanne previously spent five years with the team and started back just this season after having her third baby. She took to the field eight weeks after the latest birth! Leanne is a right winger.

Hayley has played for Pwllheli for a number of player and has operated in every position! Her favourite role is right-back, behind her sister.

Katie Houghton (Bethel) and Anna Houghton (Penrhyn Bay)

Anna on Wales duty

Katie is 18 and plays for Bethel, while Anna is aged 16 and operates in centre-midfield for Penrhyn Bay Under-16s.

Having come through Bethel’s successful youth system, Katie is now a first team squad regular and her midfield skills and industry are a big asset to the joint Division One champions.

Anna won the 2018-19 FAW Under-16 Girls Welsh Cup with Penrhyn Bay, plus three other trophies in a quadruple, and has represented Wales Under-15s.

Elin Jones and Lisa Jones (Caernarfon Town)

Twins who were part of Caernarfon Under-16s last season but now play for the ladies side.

Elin plays anywhere but mostly in defence nowadays, while Lisa is mainly a striker.

Mia Rawling and Sophie Rawling

Mia (left) and Sophie

Both Welsh internationals from Llandudno who are tipped to become very successful in the game.

Mia is 16 and Sophie is 14. They both play for Penrhyn Bay Girls FC, Mia in the ladies team and Sophie the under-14’s.

Penrhyn Bay’s team which won the 2018-19 FAW Under-16 Girls Welsh Cup included Mia in the midfield.

Mia has 2 Welsh caps and Sophie is currently part of the Wales under-15 squad.

Stacey Sansome and Jess Roberts (Pwllheli)

Jess (left) and Stacey

Stacey is 30 and Jess is 27. Over the years Stacey has played at right-back and in midfield for Pwllheli, but this term has operated up front and is top-scorer with an impressive 13 goals.

Jess mainly plays in defence and works as a nurse.

Big shout-out to Jess and all her colleagues in the NHS who are working so hard and selflessly to protect us from the dangers of the coronavirus pandemic.

Heidi Morris and Kerry Morris (NFA)

Kerry was part of the regional Wales set up from 12 to 15 (but a serious leg break meant she couldn’t progress further due to the timing of the injury).

She now plays for grassroots NFA, the Chester Personal Development Centre, as well as Wrexham Centre of Excellence, and also turns out for Denbighshire county and Ysgol Glan Clwyd as part of the Welsh Schools FA where they have reached the national semi final.

Heidi plays for NFA grassroots, plus school and county too. The county are winners for Denbighshire Under-13 girls and the Welsh Schools FA, also making the national semi-finals. Heidi is also at the North Wales Performance Centre.
