North Wales football clubs survive on the dedication and loyalty of people like Kai Davies.

The Mochdre Sports stalwart celebrates his 28th birthday on Sunday and plenty of people at the North Wales Coast East Premier Division club and no doubt beyond will be raising a glass to him.

Here is an insight into what makes Kai tick….

Full Name

Most memorable game played in

Mochdre Sports with the President’s Cup

Kai with the North Wales Coast team

Best goal scored

A 90th minute header which was the winning goal for North Wales Coast FA in a 3-2 victory against Central Wales at Conwy Borough.


Strengths to your game

Heading, passing, organising


Weaknesses

I collect far too many yellow cards


Best team-mate played alongside

Amir Movahedi. He never made it into men’s football due to injuries but at 17/18 years old he was the best around.

Hardest opponent faced

James Harper from Prestatyn Sports. His loyalty to Prestatyn over the years is even better as I’m sure he could have played a lot higher.

Biggest influence in football

My Dad – he has come to every game home and away since I can remember and isn’t afraid to criticise me or my team-mates.


Funniest team-mate

Alex Doombar Williams, the lad is something special

Favourite away ground

Blaenau Ffestiniog. Lovely pitch and I always seem to play well down there and score.

Other sporting achievements

A break of 15 in snooker.

How do you feel the season is going for Mochdre Sports?

I think we’ve started the season really well considering we’ve had a poor last couple of years. I think to finish in the top 6 would be a good achievement for us and a good platform for us to go again next season.

How is the club adjusting to life in the North Wales Coast East Premier?

I think it’s been a good move for Mochdre as we were spending countless weekends playing away in Anglesey and we now have the chance to play in a lot more competitive local derby fixtures which get good crowds. Also the addition of Rhyl 1879 to the league is a great challenge to go and give your best against them.

Football ambitions

I just want to play for as long as possible till the injuries take their toll and maybe give Tier 3 a go one day as I feel I could hold my own at that level.
