YNYS Mon women’s manager Karen Williams is confident her squad are in “a good position to succeed” ahead of their Huws Gray Inter-Island Games tournament opener this weekend.

The squad are in the final stages of planning ahead of the high-profile competition, which is being held on Anglesey for the first time in its history.

A strong-looking Ynys Mon side will begin their quest for the crown against the Western Isles at the home of Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division One side Holyhead Hotspur on Sunday (1.30pm), before they take on Hitra at Amlwch Town on Monday (6.30pm).

Williams, said: “It has been a real journey and I’d love to be able to take every player with me to the tournament, because they’ve all worked so hard and given their all, but I’ve had to make some tough decisions.

“We started this adventure last summer, getting together for the first time in Amlwch last July and the commitment and desire from every single player since then has been outstanding.

“As a team we keep talking about what an honour it is to represent Ynys Môn on home turf – ourselves and the men’s side will be the first ever football teams to do it at this level – and we just can’t wait to get going now.

“I look forward to continuing to working with this fantastic group of players over the coming weeks, and I’m confident we are in a good position to succeed when the real action starts.”

Depending on how they get on in their first two matches, the semi-finals and fifth-placed playoffs will take place on Wednesday at Bro Goronwy, Amlwch and Gaerwen, before the final day of action sees the Bronze medal game and the coveted final clash.

This will take place at the New Stadium from 3.30pm with the Bronze game set to be held at Amlwch Town (11.30am).
