Sgorio reporter, Nicky John has been getting to know some of the players and managers within the Welsh Premier League to get an insight into what makes them tick!

This week, Nicky speaks to Rhyl’s very own Beast, Steve Lewis…

What has been your personal highlight so far this season?
Putting three goals past Prestayn Town in the North Wales Coast Challagne Cup Final in August, and my bullet header to win the match on New Years Day in the Welsh Premier League.

Which team performance have you been most proud of?
It has to be Bala Town away this season. We won 1-0 with an excellent display from the lads.

What do you do when you’re not playing football?
Play on my xbox, Im a pro on Fifa, I’ll challenge anyone to a dual. I’m also part time TV Star on Soccer AM…

Who’s the biggest character in the dressing room?!
Tom Roberts – he doesn’t shut up!

Which of your team mates do you most admire?
Mark Powell because of his age – you should always respect your elders!

Joking aside he’s a great club man, he’s achieved so much in his football career and he’s well thought of at Rhyl Football Club by all.

Does anyone make a better cup of tea than Tracey Jones at Rhyl FCITC?!
Yes Tony Aldridge in the main stand canteen, and he’s always good for a free mars bar for the lads.

In terms of opposition, which WPL player(s) have impressed you so far this season?
Glenn Rule for his defence positioning.

What’s your favourite away trip and why?!
Our derby coast rivals Bangor City.

I was suspended for this season’s away fixture but very much enjoyed the occasion watching on from the terraces with the Rhyl faithful.

Who serves the best post match meal?!
The New Saints. However the after match pizza’s which were on display after our recent home match against Prestatyn were excellent!

What was the first football match you attended as a fan, and what do you remember of it?!
It was the 1996 FA Cup Final at Wembley, Liverpool vs Manchester United.

Everyone remembers the final because of the horrible white suits the Liverpool players wore.

Who is your football hero?
I’m having two because I can – Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carrahager.

If you could trade places with anyone on or off the field for a day, who would it be, and why?!
Strongy (Greg Strong), he attracts the birds where ever he goes, and he’s mates with Carla from Coronation Street!

Finally, as it’s January, can I ask if you made any New Year’s resolutions?!
Yes, not to get sent off…
