The Ynys Mon Men’s Football team has today announced a provisional 25-man squad for this summer’s Inter Island Games Football Tournament to be hosted on Ynys Mon for the first time ever.
18 of the 25 players in the squad represent clubs on Anglesey at present, with the chosen 25 including players with significant experience across the Welsh domestic system, and many of whom have competed in the International Island Games previously.
The Ynys Mon 2019 Tournament Organising Committee is delighted to announce the host venues selected for this summer’s tournament, with a dozen clubs chosen to host both matches and training sessions.
Fixtures will take place across the island, enabling communities across Ynys Mon to sample the high standard of football set to be played during the tournament in June, with 11 of the island’s club hosting games and one chosen to host training sessions.

The first of three Ynys Mon Men’s Football trial games held on Wednesday (October 17th) at Holyhead Hotspur was an enormous success and a fantastic celebration of Anglesey’s male footballing talent, said Men’s team manager Campbell Harrison.
Nearly forty Anglesey-based players from a host of different clubs across the Welsh football pyramid came together at The New Oval to stake their claim for a place in the manager’s provisional squad ahead of next summer’s Inter Games Football Tournament, set to be hosted on Anglesey in June 2019.
Over 150 spectators were in attendance at the match, and with two more trial matches to come before Christmas, the manager Harrison admitted to having a selection headache on his hands going into the new year when the squad will be whittled down.
“Well, firstly, I think it has to be said that our first trial game was an enormous success and a fantastic celebration of the many excellent players we have on the island. It was brilliant to see so many players showing how much passion and desire they have for representing the island at next summer’s tournament.
“I’ve got some very difficult decisions ahead of me in the new year, that’s for sure, because these players we saw on Wednesday night put everything they had into the game and have shown such enthusiasm for the island – they’ve really done themselves proud – and we’ve got so many more players to see in future trial games to come.
“There was a real buzz at the match from everyone – fans, coaches, players, our committee members who are responsible for making this tournament happen – and the best thing is we’re only just getting started on our journey. There’s a long way to go, and this adventure for our island is only going to get more an more exciting for our island.”
