Reportedly the world’s youngest club manager at 18, Jordan Hadaway knows his football.

Boss of North East Wales League side Caerwys, assistant-manager of Holywell FC Girls and Ladies and coach for Real Madrid’s young talent, Jordan is the latest to choose his All-Time North Wales XI.

Jordan Hadaway

Jordan selected his team from players he has watched or managed against. The team does not include players he has managed.

Jordan Hadaway’s All-Time North Wales XI

Formation: 4-4-2

GK – Shaun Pearson

One of the best shot stoppers I have seen, especially in the 2017/18 season at Holywell Town when he was unbelievable between the sticks.

RB – Phil Lloyd

A very attacking full back with a lot of energy that could also defend. Originally a forward but made full-back his own at Holywell.

CB – George Horan

Calm and composed, leader on the field and will put his head anywhere. Great player and still has a season or more in him. Well over 400 Welsh Premier appearances under his belt, key central defender in the Connah’s Quay Nomads revolution.

CB – Jon Jones

Defended his box well, good in the air and good fella to have around your club. Had an unreal season at Holywell 2017/18, also he is a top guy too.

LB – Steve Thomas

Great left foot, attacking full back with a lot of ability. One of the best around. Made his name at Holywell, winning a major treble in 2014-15, gone on to play for Llandudno and Rhyl.

LM – George Peers

Played with him and watched him, great player that is someone to watch for in Welsh football. Gets at the full back, delivers quality into the box and scores goals.

CM – Richie Foulkes

Good leader, good in the air and on the ball. He is the spine of the midfield at Flint and gives 100% every week.

CM – Jack Thorn

Played with him and watched him, just signed a professional contract at Wrexham AFC. Best player in this team for me, calm on the ball, good on the ball, leader, very good in a tackle and he makes everything look so easy.

LM – Shaun Tuck

Normally a forward but didn’t have room! Very direct and skilful on the ball. Had a good scoring record at Holywell.

ST – Michael Wilde

Strong and physical presence up top, holds the ball up really well and good in the air. His hold up play brings others into the game. Scores a lot of goals too – 180 in the Welsh Premier has put him fourth in the all-time list. Star player for Connah’s Quay, The New Saints and Chester among others.

ST – Asa Hamilton

Scored goals most places he has been in Welsh football. Clubs include Rhyl, Airbus, Guilsfield and Porthmadog.
