C'mon Cymru!

This team's journey to the Europa League has been pretty incredible. A team made up of students who actually pay a membership fee of £150 to play for the team. With only two members who have played professionally previously at Hereford FC. Will they come from 1-0 down to beat Progres in the 2nd leg and make it to the first qualifying round of the Europa League?

It's also refreshing to see such humbleness in the game, with players playing mainly due to their passion for the game!

Some quotes below:

None of the players will receive a cut of the money as a reward for reaching European football - nor do they expect to.
“That’s not why we play here,” says Woolridge.

“Education is the main reason we’re here and we play football for this club because we want to. I imagine some of the teams in our league that pay out £300 to £500 a game to some of their players don’t easily accept that we do it for free, but we do.

“We won’t be getting paid for this, but what’s left of the money will be invested into making this club even stronger for the future.”

“We are representing the student population of the UK, as well as the city of Cardiff and Wales,” said Edwards. (Cardiff Met Manager)

Like the rest of the players, I could probably work elsewhere and get X amount per week but I wouldn’t get the same enjoyment, buzz and fulfilment. Whereas at most places it’s about entitlement.”
