YNYS Mon MP Virginia Crosbie made some eyebrow-raising mistakes in a Facebook post wishing the Welsh Women’s Football Team good luck for the Euros, despite them not qualifying.

In a week where the MP also resigned from her government role in the Welsh Office following the groping scandal, things have gone from bad to worse.

In a now deleted post, Mrs Crosbie made a series of embarrassing blunders regarding the ongoing Women’s Euros.

Her post read: “The 2022 UEFA Women’s EURO championship is due to kick off this week at Wembley Stadium.

“I would like to wish all the Welsh squad, their coach Jayne Ludlow MBE and all the team the best of luck in the championship.

“I am a keen advocate of all sports, I play in the parliamentary cross party tennis team, and I personally sponsor several teams across Ynys Mon in football, rugby and even local world transplant games athletes.

“If you have a sport or a team in need of sponsorship or funding I’d love to hear from you to see if I can help please do send me a message or email me – my email address is in the comments.”

As Twitter user ‘Blogdroed’ pointed out, the Euros opening match was played at Old Trafford rather than Wembley, and Jayne Ludlow MBE was no longer the team’s head coach, with Gemma Grainger replacing her in March 2021.

Most pertinently, Wales are not even taking part in this year’s Euros, having failed to qualify altogether.

The post drew criticism online, with one user saying it was a “disgrace” and a “joke”, with another labelling it “cringeworthy”.

One user saw the funny side, particularly with the ongoing political turmoil in the country, saying “Crosbie and Dorries would be awesome on A Question of Sport”.

FAW Chief Executive Noel Mooney also responded, with a head-in-hands emoji.
