ANGHARAD James has capped a whirlwind few months with a call up to Hope Powell’s provisional squad for the Olympic games in London.

The Llandisillio girl was contacted last week by her club, Arsenal FC, to tell her she mad made the ‘long list’ for the Great Britain side.

She conceded that it would be extremely difficult to make the final cut for the squad in March, but said the news keeps alive her dream of playing at the top level.

“My goal for the coming months is to become a regular part of the Arsenal ladies first team squad,” she said.

“And to gain selection for the Arsenal super league squad which has a restricted number of players.

“But to receive a call up to the Great Britain squad really is unbelievable and a huge boost for me.”

The news caps a fantastic few months for the 17 year old.

After joining the Arsenal academy, she made her full ladies debut in the European Champions League in October.

The following month, after being capped at numerous junior levels, she won her first full Welsh cap when she appeared in a European qualifier against Scotland.

Also in November, she was a finalist at the Pembrokeshire Sport Awards, finishing runner up in the female sporting achievement of the year category.

London 2012 will represent the first time a Great Britain ladies team has played at the Olympics. The side is expected to play two friendlies before their opening game in Cardiff in July.
