It’s taken 64 years, but Wales are finally back. And as a business with its roots in Wales we’re more excited than ever. But it got us thinking of the Welsh legends of yesteryear. Where did these legends come from? And would they make our fictitious County level Football clubs?
To find out, we researched numerous professional players from around the country and asked Wales football fans on Reddit which of those players should be listed in each county’s ultimate 11.

The Clwyd badge is inspired by the Clwyd Coat of Arms as well as the many castles that surround the area.

Clwyd Rangers

We start with Clwyd Rangers who have a number of legendary players on their roster. The historical county of Clwyd includes Conwy, Denbighshire, Flintshire and Wrexham. Clwyd has a whole roster of talent notably that of Ian Rush, Mike England and Gary Speed. Here’s how fans voted:

Gwynedd’s badge is inspired by the mountains of Snowdonia which is spread across the region as well as the arms of LLywelyn who was the last native ruler of the region.

Gwynedd Athletic

The North West of Wales has really produced some major talent, most notably Wayne Hennessey who’s performance against Ukraine helped to solidify Wales’ place in the World Cup as well as “Wyn The Leap” Davies. Gwynedd Athletic is representative of the old principal county that included Anglesey.
