The next inductee into the Hall of Fame is former Rhyl and Neath star, Lee Trundle.

A skilful and entertaining footballer, Trundle was certainly one who managed to raise the profile of the league.

He first made his mark in Wales with Rhyl where his 18 goals in just 15 appearances in 2000/01 saw then Wrexham manager, Brian Flynn, taking a chance on the youngster.

After two years with Wrexham, Trundle followed Flynn to south Wales and Swansea City before becoming the first £1million footballer to emerge from the Welsh Premier League when he signed for Bristol City in 2007.

Trundle returned to the Welsh Premier League in 2010 when a stunned Welsh footballing world watched as he was unveiled at Neath. He netted 29 goals for the Eagles in two seasons before the club’s demise saw him leave Wales for Preston North End.
