Football: Harri set for North Wales Dragons debut milestone at national event

A hard-working footballer will become the youngest to ever take the field for a regional side that raises funds for causes throughout the community.

Harri Jackson has been training with the North Wales Dragons over the last year after originally helping out within the set-up aged 13 as part of his Duke of Edinburgh volunteering, with father Phil also playing a prominent role in the team’s success over the last decade.

They recently celebrated their tenth anniversary of their inaugural game, and now Harri has turned 16 he can officially contribute on the pitch for the Dragons during the upcoming Charity Champions League tournament, which is being held in Cardiff on June 28.

The competition has been arranged by Gobaith Cymru Football Club and will see a number of charity sides from across the country compete against each other in the hope of securing the coveted trophy.

Harri, who has also represented Colwyn Bay FC at youth level, is part of the squad for their trip to South Wales and he will become the youngest debutant to compete for the club should he be selected at any stage.

Senior School Head Sally Ann Harding, said: “Harri has worked incredibly hard during his time with the North Wales Dragons, and his selfless attitude in terms of his commitment to the club is something we see on a daily basis from him here at Rydal Penrhos.

“I am sure he is going to get an enormous amount out of what promises to be an exciting experience at the Charity Champions League in Cardiff, and everyone at Rydal Penrhos wishes Harri and the Dragons’ the very best of luck.”
