DREAMS have come true for a Junior Football Club on Anglesey whose members are set to embark on a European journey.

The Amlwch Town under 11's, coached by Euriona and Rob Williams-Jones, will be travelling to Barcelona's Nou Camp this month.

The Juniors will play against teams from all over the world in a bid to win the Europa Cup.

The squad will be split into two teams (seven a side) and will face clubs from Singapore, Netherlands and America.

Coach Euriona said: "To see their faces as they walk out onto the pitch of the Camp Nou stadium to play football will be an unforgettable experience, as they'll be following in the footsteps of some of the best players in the world.

"The squad live and breathe the game and the bond between them is clear in the way they play. The tournament season has been tough over the last couple of months after an amazing league season on Anglesey. We have pushed them out of their comfort zone to compete with teams from major cities as well as attending local tournaments.

"They have learnt to win and lose which has only improved their game.”

With increasing opportunities becoming available to women within football, Euriona started as a safeguarding representative at Amlwch Juniors and has recently completed her C licence with the FAW.

She says the European trip is something that her and partner Chris, who is himself a former Amlwch player, will be a "dream come true" as they have been wanting to take their squad to a European tournament "for a long time".

"Some of the Juniors have never even been on a plane before so you can imagine how excited they are," Euriona added.

"It has all come together with the squad we have developed with Mo Enyon since last August.

"It is completely voluntary based and along with the parents, we have been able to raise the money needed in order for the team to travel to Barcelona. This would not be possible without the support of local businesses and the community so we thank them for this.

“Football to me is not just a fun activity, it is also about the community in which we live, the friends we make and we always show our appreciation back.

"We hope to represent Anglesey well in Barcelona and make our country proud of our youth footballers."

The team has been involved in several fundraisers in the Amlwch area, which Euriona says has helped them develop their confidence and learn about discipline and respect.
