Two Abergele teenagers aiming to kick-start careers as professional footballers have already racked up ten international caps between them. Centre-back Billy Sass Davies has trained with ex-Arsenal player Thierry Henry, while defender Ashleigh Mills is planning to crack the American soccer scene.
The pair are both regulars for their respective Wales international teams as well as their domestic clubs, while doing schoolwork at Ysgol Emrys ap Iwan, Abergele.
Ashleigh, 16, who plays for Prestatyn Girls Under 16s, has already played for Wales against teams from England, Ireland, Finland and Iceland.
School football team captain Billy, 15, trains three times a week at Crewe Alexandra. He’s played for Wales Under-15s against Poland, Switzerland and Belgium.
Ysgol Emrys ap Iwan’s PE teacher and assistant curriculum leader Darren Doyle-Howson says he is delighted both Billy and Ashleigh are playing international football and representing Wales: “Both Billy and Ashleigh deserve their success and I hope to see them both earn full-time contracts in the future. They are a credit to themselves and the school.”
