Coach Owen Davis has very kindly compiled the following pen pictures on the players.
Libby Rubin – Goalkeeper
Cool, Calm, Collected. Libby never panics and loves to pull off a good save for the cameras.
Fleur Custance – Defender
Heartbeat of the team. Brilliant reader of the game, leader and fantastic character.
Erin Dunkerley – Defender
110% commitment guaranteed, plays with immense passion and leadership.
Charlotte Perry – Defender
Very versatile defender. Quietly and tidily goes about her job, and ultra-reliable.
Lara Cook – Defender
Another who plays with great passion, works hard and is deceptively quick off the mark. Great character.
Christiana Allen – Defender
Can play in a variety of positions and very rarely makes mistakes. Has shown a great attitude particularly of late, especially in continually asking for sprint training!
Millie Spencer – Defender/ Attacker
Ultra versatile, Millie can play in any position and always has a very cool head. Scored a quick-fire hat-trick against Bethel in an early round of the competition.
Maddie Williams – Midfield
Fantastic character, inspiration, another heartbeat of the team. Drives everything forward and “has got the lot”. An asset to any team.
Erin Doran – Midfield
Composed performer with the class to ghost past players as if they’re not there. Can play in a variety of positions quite comfortably. Was outstanding in the semi final win, including netting a screamer for the first Penrhyn Bay goal, Shows her Dad how it’s done.
Sophie Rawling – Midfield
Classy, creative, dual-footed playmaker. Loves to take opponents on and beat them whether on the wing or in the number 10 position. Recently called up to the Welsh international squad and deservedly so
Mia Roberts – Midfield
What an engine! Covers every blade of grass on the pitch and will play any role asked of her. Attitude is phenomenal. Destined to go far in the sport.
Polly Wild-McGregor – Winger
Fantastic feet, and somebody who really took the semi-final by the scruff of the neck, scoring a fantastic goal and winning two penalties.
Ella Jones – Midfield
Fantastic touch and absolutely wicked left foot, and fantastic creator. Loves to take opponents on and beat them. Plays with real passion.
Nel Metcalfe – Striker
Ultra-speedy centre forward who could play in any position on the pitch. Has bags of pace and a cool finisher. Wrapped up the semi-final with the penalty to make it 3-1. A sportswoman of the highest calibre who could go on to represent Wales in either football, rugby or indeed both!
Alys Davis – Striker
Hard working attacker who has evolved from a six-yard box goal-poacher to a right winger. Likes to run at people and will always give every ounce of effort Football means everything to her.
