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.
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.
Personal football ambitions
Play to the highest standard of my ability and try and play at a consistent level.
Best country visited
Best after-match venue
Blaenau Ffestiniog always put on a good spread.
Best film seen
Current favourite song
Too many to choose from

TV show you dislike most
Ru Paul’s drag race (as the missus is obsessed with it) haha!!
Best quality as a person
Best live show/concert seen
Ed Sheehan, Manchester (Etihad stadium) 2018
What are your future hopes for Llanrwst United
Highest finish possible in the new tier 3 league and a cup wouldn’t go amiss Haha.
