Best Footballing Memory:

Having lost Archie during Labour in 2015, Henry, my 2nd son was born on July 1st 2016, the day Wales beat Belgium in the quarter finals of European Cup. I had only been back from France for a week. Wales V England was on Archie’s 1st birthday, June 16th, so I had to get tickets. Anyway, Henry was born on the morning of the 1st July so I was able to get him into his Wales kit for the game and we smashed Belgium 3-1 to reach the semi final of the Euro’s. Best day of my life by a country mile.

Reason for playing:

I am playing for my Son Archie Jones. Archie passed away in labour after 42 weeks, on 16th June 2015.
