Biography

Jonny is a Sevens specialist, but it was at soccer that he first came to be noticed, playing as a trainee with Cardiff City and also appearing for Bridgend Town and Bryntirion Athletic. However, during the 2011-12 season he began playing rugby with Bridgend Athletic. In only his third game in February 2012 he played in their narrow Welsh Cup defeat to Neath. There was no looking back for this talented player from then on and a month later he made his Aberavon debut as a wing. He had the ability also to play at full back and outside half. However, he played only 10 times in 2017-18 and transferred to Bridgend after having made 93 appearances for the ‘Wizards’. He returned, to the delight of supporters to play in August 2018 and was soon scoring very exciting tries again. Jonny tells me he even went on a South Wales Police rugby tour!!
