Charlotte Bethany Webb in her playing days

Charlotte Webb formerly played for Cybi Women and Amlwch Town, but since injuries curtailed her football career she has been joint-manager of Amlwch, who are top of North Wales League Division Two.

She also has a lot of other very interesting hobbies in her busy life.

Full Name

Charlotte Bethany Webb

Date of Birth

17/10/1994

First football memory

I can’t pinpoint a particular memory in terms of when I started playing. I always had a kick around with my brothers growing up, but I do remember watching the women’s FA Cup Final in 2006 (Arsenal v Leeds United, Arsenal won 5-0) and thinking, I want that to be me one day (never happened but one could dream) 😂

Football idol

Kelly Smith! Just wow. She went through similar injuries to me and she got through them stronger, and she was just a phenomenal player to watch!

Position

What a super kit!

Started as a goalie for my brothers, played striker for my youth football teams, a winger at the start of my women’s football career and then finished it off as left-back which was probably my best position!

Most memorable game played in

Charlotte (centre) with Paige Williams (left) and Catrin Thomas after winning the 2019 Supplementary Cup with Amlwch

In terms of playing, I would say the Jersey Island Games 2015 for Ynys Mon was incredible! Playing against Gibraltar at the Springfield Stadium was great.
As a manager/coach now, it’s definitely a tie between the Supplementary Cup final for Amlwch v Wrexham at Rhyl, and the final of the Inter-Games women’s football, Ynys Mon versus Isle of Man at Hotspur stadium. The crowds on both occasions was phenomenal!

Biggest highlight of football career

Celebrating Island Games success with (back) Callum Ridings. From (l-r): Philippa Jones, Karen Williams and Mo Eynon

Being a manager of Amlwch winning the Supplementary Cup and being on the coaching staff for the Island Games Squad for Gotland/Ynys Mon. I can’t pick.

Best goal scored

It was playing for Amlwch 2014/15 season. We were playing Northrop Hall away, we had a throw in on the halfway line. I got the ball, controlled and lobbed it into the goal from there. We lost the game but the goal was alright 🙂

Strengths to your game

I was fast and i could read the game pretty well.

Weaknesses

Injury Prone 🙄

Best team-mate played alongside

Karen Williams

Hardest opponent faced

Charlotte challenges Gail Naylor

Gail Naylor is up there for sure

Biggest influence in football

My mum and dad always supported me playing from a young age, and when I got injured they encouraged me to get back into it and when my career ended through injury they insisted that I carry on with coaching even though at the time I didn’t want anything to do with football and I’ll be forever grateful for that.
Kelly Smith I already mentioned inspired me a whole lot too.

Funniest team-mate

The ever-funny Ashleigh Jones (furthest right)

Best player you have coached/managed

Having the opportunity to manage every single one of my players has been amazing but Catrin Bach (Catrin Evans) is a phenomenal young player. I can’t not mention how much of a pleasure it is to coach her!

Always enjoyed Buckley’s ground

Other sporting achievements

I was selected to play rugby for North Wales youth teams.
I was a member of the Young Ambassador Steering Group for Wales.

Tell us something about you we might not know

Charlotte’s portrait of Lana Parrilla, which the actress herself signed. Awesome!

I’m obsessed with Harry Potter? Of course everyone already knows that.
I can draw.. I like to draw in my very limited free time and I actually drew a picture of the actress Lana Parrilla and she actually signed it when I met her at a comic con convention last year. That’s cool.
Also, I collect 50p’s and I have a nut allergy.
