Rosie Hughes is your 2021-22 Goalden Girl!

Pretty much from the early weeks of the season, it was never in doubt.

Rosie Hughes had the eight months of her life as she banged in 48 goals in just 21 appearances for Adran North side Wrexham AFC Women. She is the 2021-22 Grassroots North Wales Goalden Girl.

Although Wrexham did not win a senior trophy (they were Under-19 champions) Rosie was deservedly named Adran North Player of the Year for her stunning net-busting feats involving 36 goals in 14 matches.

For a time early in the season, Llandudno’s Ella Jones was matching Rosie neck-and-neck in the goal stakes, but the Tudno teenager’s campaign sadly ended early due to injury with her total on 22.

Maddie Williams of Llandudno, in her first full season after a lengthy absence from 11-a-side, knocked in a remarkable 32 goals in all competitions to finish second in the Goalden Girl table.

Candice Nellist of CPD Y Rhyl 1879 scored 29 times and finished top markswoman in the North Wales Women’s League, which her team were crowned champions of without a single defeat.

Despite playing as a holding midfielder, Kirstie Kural performed marvels to score 26 goals for Connah’s Quay Nomads and was somehow denied a place in the Adran North Team of the Season. Kirstie was second highest scorer in her league with 23 goals.
