Cori Williams Interview

Cori Williams Interview

We caught up with Cardiff City Ladies baller, Cori Williams, to discuss the life of a 25 year old female footballer in the UK...

So, what got you into football?

When I was younger my uncle managed the local team and I spent a lot of time with him so I suppose I just got involved that way.

What position do you play? And have you always played there?

My favourite position is striker as that's where I've always played. This season I have also played on the wing and in the centre of midfield.

Favourite game you’ve played in and why?

My favourite game would be earning my first senior cap for Wales against France, out in Croatia. Although we lost 1-0 it was such an hour to play at senior level for Wales.

What do you feel is your best attribute as a player?

I'd like to think I keep the ball well. I don't give it away very often and I can score goals.

What’s your ambition in football?

I want to secure a first team place in the senior squad and would love to play professionally.

Who’s been the biggest influence on your footballing career?

I'd say my parents, without them I wouldn't of been able to experience a lot of what I have done. They have always supported me from when I was young.

What music do you listen to in your own time and who’s the DJ in the dressing room?

I'm a sucker for a bit of pop. I love a good sing along. The DJ I would have to say is one of the young kids, as they are always up to date with new songs so we leave them in charge of that!

Do you have any superstitions?

Superstitions... I always like to be the last player out of the changing room on match day and be the last in the team line up.

What advice would you give to any young aspiring female footballers?

I would just say to always keep going… As a women in football you face a lot of barriers. Just make sure you smash them down and keep going!

Why did you choose Concave?

I loved the design of the boots and the concept of the company.

What do you like most about the boots and how do they help your game?

I love how light they are and how snug they feel on my feet. With my Concave boots I feel they add accuracy to my game.
