Teams you have played for

Machno United, Llanrwst United



Most memorable game played in

Has got be the game against Bangor 1876 being the first team to beat them in a competitive match (4-1) with a big crowd a Gwydir Parc

Biggest highlight of football career so far

2018/19 Mawddach Cup Final against Llangefni. We went in a total underdogs and came out winners with a great team performance.

Best goal scored

There’s not many to choose from as a defender haha. But again probably against Bangor 1876, I scored a first time strike just outside the box to go 1-0 up against them.

Strengths to your game

I’d say my pace/touch helps my game.


Only got a left foot, right one is just for standing on haha.

Best team-mate played alongside

I’ve been lucky enough to play with a lot of talented players that have gone on to play at a high standard (Elliot Hewitt, Jake Cassidy, Alun Webb) so it’s hard to pick.

Hardest opponent faced

Joel Hewitt, Llandudno Junction. I was 20/21 I was playing LM I just couldn’t get past him the whole game. He was like a brick wall.

Biggest influence in football

I’d say my brother (Ben Mullender) played a big part as he got me into football and I always pushed myself to try and be better than him haha! But Roberto Carlos (2002) World Cup was a big inspiration as a left back.

Funniest team-mate

None other than Mr Bryn Jenkins. Never know what’s going to come out his mouth next. With Chris Nicolson a close second.

Favourite away ground

Do enjoy an away day at Barmouth.
