Full Name

Marc Anthony William Wilson

Date of Birth




Teams you have played for

Valley, Llanfairpwll, Llangefni Town, Holyhead Hotspur Res, Ogwen Tigers,



Most memorable game played in

Probably the 2017 Elias Cup Final. Beat Holyhead Town on penalties, scoring in the shootout and was my last game as player-manager

Biggest highlight of football career so far

Managing Valley alongside Dan Jones (current manager) and not doing a bad job in my opinion considering we didn’t really know what we were doing 😂

Best goal scored

I’d say my first competitive goal for Ogwen Tigers, the ball was played down the left side and I lobbed the goalkeeper from quite far out. One of them that looked good but not expecting to do it again

Strengths to your game

I think it used to be pace, but as I’m getting older it’s not what it used to be



Best team-mate played alongside

Casey and Shane Boylan. Both quality players

Hardest opponent faced

Ibrahim Fazeel or Jackie Welsh, their footballing brain were different class

Biggest influence in football

Although he’s more of a rugby man, my dad has helped me a lot

Funniest team-mate

Jack Peters.

Favourite away ground

I like Glantraeth’s pitch, but I played a friendly at Rhyl and that was a lovely surface with the old school stands so probably there

Other sporting achievements

I represented North Wales schools in cross country and as a team we came second in the senior boys category

Used to Love Dream Team

TV show you dislike most

Best quality as a person

Helping people (or so I’m told In work 😂)

Worst fault

Not thinking before I say things. Said some things makes me look so daft over the years 🙈

Best live show/concert seen

I’ve never been to a actual concert, but I did see Billie Piper and B-witched sing in a Cardiff parade when I was younger

How do you see CPD Y Fali’s prospects for the new season?

Marc displays some acrobatic skill for Valley

It’s going to be all new as we don’t know much about the opponents in the league , but think we’ll do our best and see what that brings

Tell us something about you we might not know

I once found 3 and a half grand in a bag in work and handed it in
