Playing for my hometown Prestatyn

Goal against Amlwch few seasons ago, must have been 25-30 yards out and I just thought why not. And it went straight in the top corner

Strong in tackles, who doesn’t love a slide tackle and the ability to pick out a pass

Fitness (blaming that on my age ha)

Rachel Lloyd (blue – armband) in the thick of the action

Tricky one this but going to go with Rachel Lloyd, massively helps me in the middle of the park when playing together.

How have you managed without football for 4 months since the COVID-19 outbreak? What sort of things have you done to get your football fix?

I’m quite lucky I’ve got a 9 year old boy so we have been out playing football. Glad the Premier League is back on now so that will be part of my fix now.
