Some of our past pupils have achieved further sporting or academic success. 

Gary Lloyd

The most decorated player in the Welsh league’s history is an inductee into the Welsh Premier League Hall of Fame.

Gary Lloyd won eighteen medals while playing in the league between 1992 and 2009.

After starting his career at local club Llanelli, it was with his next club, Barry Town, that Lloyd enjoyed his greatest successes.

Lloyd won the league Championship seven times in eight season during the club’s golden era, also winning the Welsh Cup four times and the League Cup four times too.

He played 282 games for Barry between 1994 and 2003, making him the club’s record appearance-maker in the Welsh Premier.

Lloyd’s finest hour for Carmarthen came in the UEFA Cup, scoring twice in the club’s 5-1 victory against Longford Town, the Old Gold’s first win in Europe and a result that still endures as one of the heaviest victories by a Welsh Premier League team in Europe.

Lloyd is also the only player to have been called up to the Wales full national squad while still playing in the national league, to face Belgium in 1997.

Despite not winning a full cap, Lloyd represented Wales in the ‘B’ team and was captain of the semi-professional side.

Lloyd scored 90 goals in the league, often spectacular free kicks with his cultured left foot and by his retirement as a player in 2009, Lloyd had played over 500 games in the Welsh Premier League.

Only two others have played more games in the league – Colin Reynolds and Andrew Thomas – two others who have been inducted into the Hall of Fame.

Without doubt, Lloyd is one of the best players in the league’s history and he’s certainly the league’s most-decorated player.
