Ian Owen lauded his team’s performance as Swansea City Ladies made it a derby day double for the club.

A few hours after Steve Cooper led the men’s first team to a 1-0 victory over Cardiff City, Owen’s side beat the Bluebirds 2-0 at Llandarcy.

Both teams had the perfect record in the Welsh Premier Women’s League going into this match, and it was goals from Katy Hosford and Stacey John-Davis that proved the difference.

And Owen was thrilled with the performance and result which his side delivered.

“I thought we were brilliant from start to finish,” he said. “It was quite even in the first quarter of an hour I suppose. In the first half we had the majority of the chances, but we just couldn’t quite finish it off.

“Then in the second half we were in the driving seat.”

“What a great day for the city and for all of the supporters that we were at our game. We had a great crowd again.

“We asked the players to wear the badge with pride because we knew that the whole club is keen to enforce that – last Sunday in particular - and to be fair, we certainly did that.”
