Everyone knows about the names of the people on the pitch at Maes Tegid… but do they know about the hardworking people behind the scenes?

We meet the people behind the scenes at Maes Tegid who devote their time of being not only a supporter of the Lakesiders but also a committee member in a series of interviews called ‘Who’s Who’.

Next up, meet Amanda

Tell us a bit about you!
I have lived in Bala for the last 21 years. I live with my mum, dad, brother and my little boy, Logan. I work at Co-op in Bala and I am originally from Manchester.

How long have you been watching the Bala Town? How did you start watching the Lakesiders and what made you start?
I have been watching Bala Town for 5 years now, my first game was the Europa League game vs FC Levadia Tallinn in 2013. I was introduced to Bala Town by Rhian Williams.

What is your role at the Club? What do you do on a matchday?
I help out in the Club Shop and sometimes take up a role as a steward if needed.

How would you describe Bala Town F.C.?
I would describe them as a determined and focused football team with great family values and very friendly atmosphere.

What is your favourite moments following the Lakesiders and why?
Winning the Welsh Cup vs TNS was a personal highlight of mine, I will never forget the atmosphere when Kieran Smith scored the winning goal at the end of the match, that was an epic game!!

Who do you think is the best player that has worn the Bala Town shirt over the period you have supported them and why?
I have to say Ashley Morris, he is a phenomenal goalkeeper and he always has time for his supporters.

What does Bala Town mean to you?
Bala Town means everything to me, football is a release for me, and i really enjoy watching them and travelling to games.

Which player signing has made you go ‘wow’ and why?
When we re-signed Sean Smith, that was a great feeling.

What do you think is the next step for Bala Town F.C.?
Qualify for the Europa League again and hopefully win a major trophy in the near future, it will be a well deserved win for a very determined team.
