Chris Summers
Chris Summers, the fourth highest scorer in the league's history.

THE fourth most successful striker ever seen in the Welsh Premier, Chris Summers appeared in the very first season of the then League of Wales for Inter Cardiff.
In two seasons with the capital club, he notched 46 goals from 52 appearances before moving on to Ton Pentre and Barry Town for very brief spells in 1994/5.
A move to Cwmbran Town for the first of four spells with the Gwent club brought a more settled period in his career and he continued his goal scoring exploits over the next four seasons.
A couple of years with Carmarthen and Haverfordwest saw him continue to score, before he returned to the Crows for another prolific period.
In 2003/4 he set a new record by scoring in 11 consecutive league matches before moving on again to Carmarthen and then the league's new boys, Cardiff Grange Quins, where he was named the league's player of the month in the clubs first few weeks in the top flight.
Financial problems at the capital outfit saw him leave in November 2005 to ply his trade in the Welsh League with ambitious Pontypridd Town, where his goals helped secure promotion to Division One in 2006. When Ponty were also hit by cash troubles in the summer of 2007, he moved on to ENTO Aberaman Athletic.
A Wales semi-professional international, he started his career with Cardiff City and has also played for Hereford United and Merthyr Tydfil (during five spells) and totals 177 Welsh Premier goals from 243 starts.
A Caerphilly-based fire-fighter, he played in Europe three times for Cwmbran.
