Welsh football stars honored with graffiti stencils


Graffiti stencils of Welsh football stars have been popping up across the country this week.

The national team will face Ukraine on Sunday with the winners traveling to November’s World Cup in Qatar and in the build up images of some of the Welsh stars have been sprayed on the pavements outside their former schools.

A total of 12 red portraits were painted, including that of Gareth Bale who was appointed MBE on the Queen’s birthday, outside Whitchurch High School in Cardiff, Aaron Ramsey outside Ysgol Cwm Rhymni in Blackwood, Joe Allen at Ysgol y Preseli in Crymych, and headmaster Rob Page, outside his former playground, Ferndale Community School, in the Rhondda Valley.

Two of them also appeared across the border, outside King Edward VI Community College in Totnes, Devon, and South Hunsley High School in Hull, where Kieffer Moore and Dan James respectively attended secondary school.


The portraits were commissioned by S4C which shows all of Wales’ fixtures in June, which included three Nations League fixtures – which started with last night’s defeat in Poland – and Sunday’s crucial play-off final.

Supporters are encouraged to take their photos with the graffiti and use the hashtags #YLlawrGoch – The Red Floor.
