International Women’s Day North Wales Dream Team – Ceryl Tindall-Jones

Ceryl Jones chooses her North Wales Dream Team

On International Women’s Day it is apt that we feature one of the greatest North Wales players of them all.

Ceryl Tindall-Jones today chooses team 22 in the North Wales Women’s Football Dream XI series.

A three-time Welsh Cup winner with Bangor City, Ceryl has also lifted numerous trophies with Caernarfon Town, won 48 senior Welsh caps and represented both Merseyside giants, Everton and Liverpool, at the top level.

The attacking play of “Giggsy” won her endless plaudits throughout her career.

In selecting her Dream Team, Ceryl follows previous ‘managers’ Paige Williams (Amlwch), Tegan Hewitt, Alaw Davies-Smith, Nia Wyn Ellis, Annmarie Jones, Fflur Williams, Chelsea Evans, Abby Williams, Gwenno Gibbard Bolton, Lexi Crawley, Claire Colville, Cerys Gadd, Libby McClelland, Meinir Thomas, Erica Jones, Rachel Roberts, Beca Williams, Mari Gibbard, Emily Jones, Cara Wyn Hughes and Catrin Wyn Thomas.

GIGGSY’S GREATS (4-4-2)

GOALKEEPER

Jo Roberts

Jo Roberts is middle row, to right of manager Keith Fearns’ left arm and directly below girl in peaked cap Cheryl Foster

A goalkeeper you could trust to stop anything. Former team-mate at Bangor City.

DEFENDERS

Sioned Bohana

Sioned (yellow) in action against Llandudno

Only seen her play for Caernarfon a couple of times, but very reliable player that wants to get involved and understands the game well.

Erica Jones

Very good and organised defender in the couple of games I played against her.

Kim Broadbent

One of those defenders who when you think you’ve got past her, she gets that tackle in that frustrates strikers. One of the best defenders all-round.

Alwen Williams (Biff)

Biff is pictured middle row, fifth from left with this vintage Bangor City squad

Hard-working, never afraid to put her body on the line.
A player that could play in any position.

MIDFIELDERS

Tania Jones

The midfield wall solid, the Roy Keane of women’s football.
Best midfielder I know, always puts 100% into her game.

Iona Williams

Iona (right – No 8)

The Paul Scholes of the midfield. Keeps calm and controls the midfield. Hard-working, box-to-box midfielder.

Manon Lloyd Williams

Fastest player I’ve ever seen. Made poor through balls look like brilliant passes. Never stopped running up and down the wing.

Siwan Elenid

Industrious, skillful player that would run forever and not be afraid to throw her body into tackles.

STRIKERS

Cheryl Foster

Cheryl Foster (second left) is now a UEFA Elite referee

We all know the talent and eye for goal Fozzy had, knew where the goal was with her eyes closed. Quick feet, very skillful.

Katie Bowe

Set-pieces queen. Best left-footer in the women’s game.
