Episode 303: Luke Williams

Aged 20, Luke Williams suffered a catastrophic knee injury that crushed all hope of playing professionally. While living rent free in a plush Canary Wharf flat with Bobby Zamora, Williams "grafted away" in whatever job came his way as his friend forged a career in the Premier League.He stumbled into coaching and has never looked back; earning a reputation as a progressive coach with a variety of clubs before being appointed manager of Notts County in 2022. In his first season, promotion was secured to League Two through the play-offs after an enthralling and record-breaking title race against Wrexham.His move to Swansea in 2024 seemed a natural fit having previously coached at the club under former manager Russell Martin, and his possession-based philosophy aligned with the "Swansea way".Simon Davies sits in for Elis James.

Episode 302: Andrew Crofts

Andrew Crofts is a rare breed - a former player who now admits to enjoy working more as a coach. Since September 2022, the 39-year-old has been first-team coach at Brighton, and explains how manager Roberto De Zerbi has ignited his love of coaching even further through his meticulous planning and charismatic personality.As a combative midfielder, Crofts played in all four top English divisions, including spells with Wrexham and Newport. He won 29 caps for Wales over a 12-year period that saw him work under John Toshack, Gary Speed and Chris Coleman. He tells Elis James and Iwan Roberts how he's taken inspiration from each one as he continues to evolve as a coach.

Episode 300: Neil Roberts

In 2008, Neil Roberts was captain of the Wrexham side relegated from the Football League. His first spell with his hometown club a decade earlier was far more successful, playing in the third tier of English football. That's where Wrexham will be playing next season after the revival under owners Rob McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds continues at great pace after a second successive promotion last Saturday. Roberts describes the "life changing" effect the famous duo have had on the lives of so many people, and the positive impact of the football club can be felt throughout the community. He also reveals what prompted him to leave his influential role at Manchester City and how he's been revitalised by his new enterprise in the heart of Wrexham.If you are affected by any of the issues in this podcast, you can find details of organisations that can help via the BBC Action Line. https://bbc.in/3UnR9ux

Episode 299: Barry Horne

Barry Horne was 22-years-old when he first joined the professional ranks. A few months later, the chemistry graduate was the goal-scoring hero in arguably Wrexham's greatest result when they knocked Portuguese giants Porto out of the Uefa Cup Winners' Cup in 1984. Horne went on to play for Portsmouth and then alongside the likes of Alan Shearer and Matt Le Tissier at Southampton. A dream move followed to Everton, the club he supported as a boy growing up in Flintshire, scoring a crucial goal to avoid relegation in 1994 and then winning the FA Cup the following season. And with 59 caps for Wales, including being captain of the side that came agonisingly close to 1994 World Cup qualification, Horne certainly has no regrets about swapping the chemistry lab for the football field.

Episode 292: Kit Symons

As a 21-year-old in his debut season, Kit Symons was four minutes away from reaching the 1992 FA Cup final with Portsmouth. And then Ronnie Whelan equalised for Liverpool. Further heartache followed as Pompey lost the replay 3-1 on penalties, with Symons (as surprised as anyone when selected) the only one to score.A trip to Wembley evaded Symons for the rest of his career, but he did win two league titles with Fulham and promotion with Crystal Palace. The centre back also won 36 caps for Wales - coming agonisingly close to qualifying for the 1994 World Cup.He then managed Fulham, while also helping to end Wales' 58-year wait to qualify for a major tournament as assistant manager to Chris Coleman in the Euro 2016 qualifiers. He was then by Rob Page's side as Wales reached Euro 2020 and the 2022 World Cup. Oh, and he also had a chat with Michael Jackson and Noel Gallagher (not at the same time). Quite the career.Carl Roberts sits in for Elis James.

Episode 290: Malcolm Allen

Most people from Deiniolen (or any other Welsh village for that matter) don't speak English in a Cockney accent. Then again, Malcolm Allen is not like most people. And there aren't many who know him better than Iwan Roberts.The pair look back at their early days learning their craft at Watford - including the parties at Elton John's house - to playing alongside each other, just twice, for Wales. If only Ian Rush, Mark Hughes and Dean Saunders weren't around at the same time!Over 40 years since first meeting, they are closer than ever - although that friendship was certainly put to the test over a salty steak in China (shipped in especially from LA by Elton!)Carl Roberts sits in for Elis James.
