She is the female equivalent of Yws Gwynedd – quality footballer, class musician!

Since signing for Amlwch Town early in the 2021-22 season, Tesni Hughes has been a sensation, her 15 goals making her second highest scorer in the North Wales Women’s League.

Tesni is also an up and coming guitar/vocalist who performs regular gigs. Some of her performances can be seen on You Tube.

She is The One and Only – okay that was Chesney Hawkes, but Chesney sounds like Tesni and Hawkes and Hughes are not dissimilar!

5’1 maybe? I’m really small ahaha

How did you become interested in football?

I became interested in football when I was really young, I don’t really remember how, I think because my cousins and a lot of my family have an interest in football.

How long have you been playing football?

I’ve been playing since I was about 4

Have you always played in the position you play now?

In the last 5/6 years I’ve been a striker but I’ve played as a midfielder, defender and had a little phase where I wanted to be a keeper over the years.

What is your training schedule like?

We train on a Thursday and have games on Sunday. I try to go to the gym at times too just to try to get that little bit more training in.

If you are not playing football or not working, what do you do in your spare time?

In my spare time, I usually jam out with my guitar or keyboard. I either write my own songs or just play covers.

Do you like shopping? What are your favourite stores?

I’m not the biggest fan of shopping but 100% my favourite stores are Dr Martens and Vans.

Which female footballer do you admire most?

I admire Jess Fishlock, she’s been a hero of mine since I was very young.

Which coach has influenced you the most?

All the coaches I’ve had over the years have all impacted my game in so many ways so I can’t really pick just one😂

Tell us about the greatest game you’ve played in

I reckon the best game I’ve played was when we drew 1-1 against Rhyl 1879. The battle myself and the team put into that game was something else!

What’s your finest achievement to date as a footballer?

When I was around 7 or 8 I got the chance to play for the Anglesey Boys team. I know it was a while back but being the only girl playing was something I’ll always be proud of ahaha.

Strengths and weaknesses to your game?

I think my strengths are I’m hard working and I really want to make every game count but my weakness is I get annoyed at myself very quickly and..I tend to hit the ball over the bar very very often…as my teammates know🤭😂

How do you feel the season is going for Amlwch Ladies?

I feel like this season is going really well for us at Amlwch and I couldn’t be prouder. I’m so glad I’m a part of such a great team on and off the pitch!

What are your musical tastes?

Music wise, my preference of music changes. It all depends on what I feel like that day, but ever since I was young I’ve been a huge fan of Oasis and the Stone Roses etc, but saying that I do have a soft spot for boy bands like JLS and 1D🤭

You are a musician yourself – can you tell us a bit about your career so far?

I’ve been playing music since a young age, starting off in a brass band playing the cornet almost 10 years ago now, but as I got older I started experimenting with an old guitar at home and fell in love with it. Now I play guitar, keyboard and euphonium, write songs and gig around Anglesey/Bangor (with the best crowd going 💙) while still being a part of Seindorf Beaumaris Brass Band.

Do you watch TV soaps? If so, who is your favourite character?

I don’t really watch a lot of TV, but I do love a bit of Family Guy and South Park

Do you have any pets?

I have 2 dogs and a cat. Oli is a little Jack Russell cross with a Mini Pincher. Bezz is a Collie cross with a Jack Russell and Patch is the cat

What is your dream job?

Either become successful in an acting career or probably tour the country with my music while also playing footie on the side
