Mylo, whilst not being an original Knight, is certainly from the first generation. Coming to Northumbria Uni in the autumn of 2008, he turned out for his 3 years in the north east before relocating to Manchester and transferring to Poynton. Following another move he transferred back during the 2012/13 season and has been a sporadic feature ever since.
He's a member of the Wales squad for the World Champs, and this is his Road to Denver
Q – Where and when did your “Road to Denver” Start?
M - On the run up to the euros 2012, although the squad is different the coaching staff always mentioned Denver and the continued training/fitness required.
Q – Talk us through the process you’re going through from that point up until when
you’re leaving for Denver.
M - We had continued try outs from around January 2013, with training at least once a month and game time at BNCs 2013 and a friendly against Scotland. The team was announced in November. I was originally a reserve however a drop out in midfield meant I was put into the main squad.
Q- Was there any point when you didn’t think you’d make it?
M - Although I was happy I was on the squad as a reserve I was unsure whether it was cost effective for me to go and have the experience but not able to play once the tournament had started.
Q – Now you’re going, what have you got to do to make sure you get there at top effectiveness, and be able to make your mark on the competition?
M - Continue stick handling, watching games, working on my own personal fitness and getting in the correct mind set on how I could benefit the squad.
Q – What are your goals for the tourney?
M - For Wales to achieve the best result possible and to be able to say I gave it everything I had every time I was on the pitch.
Q - What are you looking forward to most about the tournament?
M - The experience of playing in a world championship, staying at Denver University campus and socialising with players from around the world.
Q – Any plans for after the competition?
M - Relaxing and socialising with my team and other countries.
Q - Thanks for your time Mylo, hope everything goes your way, and you and your fellow Dragons give a good account of yourselves.
