PEN Y BRYNYSGOL EMRYS AP IWAN.

TWO Abergele teenagers aiming to kick-start careers as professional footballers have already totted up 10 international caps between them.

Centre-back Billy Sass Davies has trained with Arsenal legend Thierry Henry, while defender Ashleigh Mills is planning to crack the American soccer scene.

The pair are both regulars for their respective Wales international teams as well as their domestic clubs, while juggling the demands of schoolwork at Ysgol Emrys ap Iwan, Abergele.

Ashleigh, 16, who plays for Prestatyn Girls Under 16s, has already lined up for Wales against teams from England, Ireland, Finland and Iceland.

School football team captain Billy,15, trains three times a week at Crewe Alexandra, the club credited with launching the careers of top players such as Robbie Savage, Danny Murphy and David Platt among others.

He played for Wales at Under 15 level winning caps after representing his country twice against Poland as well as Switzerland and Belgium. And the commanding centre-back is hoping to be included in the Wales squad for a match against France.
