Over the past few weeks, Grassroots North Wales has been choosing All-Time Welsh Premier XI’s based on players’ surnames.

We’ve picked 10 popular names to form our teams and now it’s time to decide which is the best.

Personally, with their amazing strike force, I cannot look beyond the Williams team to finish top of the surnames league.

The Jones’s are also very handy, though, while my own Dave XI are no slouches!

Here’s a rundown of the teams.

The club in brackets alongside player names is the one they are best known for, or made the most appearances for in the WPL.
