FOUR granddaughters of a Welsh football legend have come up with a fun way to cheer on Hogia Ni (our boys) at the European Championships in France.

Last Saturday as Wales took on Slovakia in Bordeaux, four girls in Mold with no interest in football, decided they wanted to show their support for captain Ashley Williams and the rest of the Wales team.

Bethan Williams, 42, and her son Aled were settling in to watch the historic game, Wales’ first in a major tournament since 1958, when she found herself being pestered by her daughters Erin, 14, Siwan, 10, and their cousins Cadi Davies, 10, and Nansi Davies, 6, for Welsh props.

“They were just not interested in the game but they got caught up in the excitement so they asked if the could make a video using the Videostar app and they decided to make a music video to Rhedeg i Paris by Anhrefn.”

The Welsh punk classic is fast becoming an anthem for Welsh football fans.

But despite their lack of interest in the sport the girls do have a close link with Welsh football history.

Their taid, Dai Davies from Llangollen, played in goals for one of the most successful Welsh football teams in history.

He was part of the Welsh team that made it to the 1976 European Championship’s quarter finals but not into the tournament proper.

And he was very proud of his granddaughter’s efforts,”they are great performers and I think they had withdrawal symptoms from the Urdd Eisteddfod but it’s great that they could have fun with it.

“And in terms of the football it was a great result they played very, very well for about an hour and it’s great for eh fans. I am delighted that they have had the luck that we did not get as a team. They have worked very hard for it and have the spirit of the fans.”
