Swansea City Ladies assistant coach Harry Thomas praised his side’s mentality as they progressed to the third round of the FAW Women’s Cup with a 16-0 win over Coedffranc Women.

Eight different players found themselves on the scoresheet, with Nia Rees netting five and Katy Hosford scoring four.

Emily Freeman scored twice, with Jess Williams, Ellie Lake, Nieve Jenkins, Chloe Tiley and Gwen Horgan also finding the net.

Thomas praised his side for maintaining their high standards following a 4-0 Pontypridd in the Genero Adran Premier, and for their relentless performance.

“It’s testament to the girls and to the staff that they kept their standards high,” said Thomas.

“We’re really happy with today, obviously the girls played really well, they stuck to what we asked of them in training, so we are really chuffed.

“It was fantastic for individuals to get a number of goals and assists, but for me the team played superbly and that’s something that we are keen to keep going.

“We want to take this performance into next week, keep our standards high as they always are and always will be”.

Monet Legall was forced off the field after just 13 minutes. Thomas was disappointed to lose the forward, but remained confident in the strength in depth of the squad.

“It was a shock to lose Monet Legall so early on, she clattered into the goal so she had to come off earlier than expected, we will monitor her situation during the week,” he added.

“We have a few injuries within the squad, but we are a team that are able to get goals from a number of different positions as we’ve shown today, we’ve got strength in depth in a number of positions so when injuries do crop up, we can work around them.”
