MANY across the county will have been craving a sporting fix these past few weeks due to the coronavirus bringing nearly all activities to a halt.

With no competitive action taking place, many of Denbighshire’s sports stars have stepped forward to tell the Free Press a little bit about themselves, the clubs they represent and the highlights and low points of their careers to date.

First up was Scott Evans (pictured above with Premier League star Harry Wilson), 27, of Corwen FC. Scott is a central midfielder who has also played golf and cricket in the past.

He says his favourite moment with the club to date was gaining promotion to the JD Cymru (North) in which they currently play.

His hopes for the future with the club are for Corwen to be able to stay in the JD Cymru North and eventually become a stable club at that level by improving on and off the pitch.

Second up in the series is David Cooke, 41, of the Wingmen darts team. David played football until the age of 28, when a knee operation ended his career. He had played for Trefnant, Denbigh Town and Caerwys.

But sticking with the darts, David says his favourite pro players are Gerwyn Price and Denbigh's own Mark Webster.

When asked if he had to 'pick a teammate to win a crucial leg, which one would it be?' he said: "Nick Hailes has always come up with some great checkouts under pressure, so he is my pick.

David's favourite moment with the Wingmen was winning three consecutive Summer league titles and multiple nine-a-side cups.

Next up was Gwen Lloyd Rees, 22, of Ruthin Hockey Club. Gwen plays in defence for the club, but has also previously played football competitively.

She says her favourite pro hockey player is Sam Queck and when asked about her favourite moment with Ruthin Hockey club, Gwen said: "Although it’s been a great honour being captain this season, my favourite moment has got to be playing at the North Wales Women’s Hockey League Cup final in 2016. We lost 2-1 and were the runners up but it was a great experience and a very close game against Welshpool."

Last but not least is Danny Jones, 26, who is manager of Corwen FC Reserves. Danny is also big into his cricket, golf and fishing. He puts 'any loss the clubs suffers' down as his worst moments and he hopes in future to keep the reserves side "going strong and going for titles".
