Rhyl Fans Uncovered!

No 2: Britney Spears


Britney's Filo-fax

Britney 'Sunny Rhyl' Spears

Teenage pop-sensation Britney has always had a soft-spot for the club since one of her songs was played on the 'Radio 1 Roadshow' in the town.

Appearances on TV and Radio, Photo Shoots and  Recording sessions prevent her from being a regular at games but there's no doubting her loyalty to the club!

She is a shining example to our younger fans!


Born on the 2nd of December, 1981 and raised in the Rhyl FC supporting  heartland of Kentwood, Lousiana USA. Britney shot into prominence at the age of 11 when she earned a place on the popular TV Show "The Mickey Mouse Club". After two years of performing on the show filmed in Orlando, she returned home for a 'normal' year of education but soon had itchy feet to get out out again and see the World.

She always wanted to be singer, and her Saturday afternoons on the Rhyl FC terraces were crucial in the development of her fantastic voice.

She often led the crowd with the rendition of "Sunny Rhyl", and after an audition for an all-girl vocal group she went on to develop a solo career as a pop-singer.

She's since been a fantastic success in the Music World. Her debut album Baby One More Time soared high in the charts and her first single from the album (of same name) hit the top spot in both the UK and US. The moves for  the single's video were actually rehearsed on the Rhyl FC training ground with manager Adie Jones and his players.

Just like Rhyl Football Club, Britney has a very promising future lying ahead of her. We wish her well in all she does and look forward to seeing her back on the terraces at Belle Vue.

There could be some truth in the rumour that being closer to Rhyl FC is the reason why she is looking to buy property in the UK!!!!

Seeing as you're a bit of a singer, what's your favourite football song?
I don't think there's any other football song that can compare with the anthemic 'Sunny Rhyl' chant. It's such a vibrant song that sometimes I sing it to myself between recording sessions.

Most memorable Rhyl match:
Every one is memorable to me.

Where do you prefer to watch games?

I'm one of those who likes to see goal action so I'm usually found behind the goal that Rhyl is aiming for. My best spot is on the third row of the 'Kop' near the canteen. You just can't beat watching a match from there on a cold and rainy Saturday afternoon. It's Cool!

Favourite food:
Has to be the piping hot Cornish Pasties in the club canteen - with loads of brown sauce - they're a taste sensation!!

Favourite Pub:
I'm not one for having a drink before matches but I might have a few 'sherbets' in the Ffordd Derwen afterwards before heading into town to Bop the night away.

Hopes for the Future
I just can't wait for the day when Rhyl qualify to play in Europe! When they do so I'll arrange my tour schedule to make sure I'm there to cheer the lads on!
