Geza Hajgato is a former professional footballer.
He excelled in the sport as a teenager and represented Wales up to under-18 level.
After scoring a hat-trick for Cardiff schools in their cup final, he went on to play for Chelsea and later, Cardiff City.
However, injury and fitness issues hampered his progress and by his own admission, his dream of playing senior professional football had ended by the age of just 18.
He went on to play for Port Talbot Town in the Welsh Premier and other clubs in the Welsh pyramid…
Before reuniting with his old school friends at Cardiff-based STM Sports.
Also acting as chairman, he joined the club on their remarkable rise through the leagues over the course of a decade.
The club folded in 2020. Their last ever match saw them finish as runners-up to Cymru Premier champions Connahs Quay Nomads in the Welsh League Cup Final.
