Swansea City Ladies begin their FAW Women’s Cup campaign as they welcome Coedffranc Ladies to Llandarcy Academy of Sport this afternoon (2pm).

The Swans go into the game following an impressive 4-0 win over Pontypridd United Women. Jess Williams opened the scoring for Swansea, before Katy Hosford and Monet Legall made it three before the break.

Ellie Lake’s stunning 30-yard strike made it four in the second half to seal three points as the Swans returned to winning ways.

Coedffranc are currently in the West Wales Women and Girls League, currently sitting joint bottom after two league fixtures.

The Skewen side qualified for the second round after a 3-1 win over Wattsville Ladies, Cara Martin netting a hat-trick after her side fell behind early to a penalty.

The game will see the two sides meet for the first time in their history.

Team News

Swansea City Ladies will be without last season’s top goal scorer Stacey John-Davies after she suffered a shoulder injury in her side’s 2-0 defeat to Cardiff City Women.

John-Davies missed out on the 4-0 win over Pontypridd but is aiming for a shorter recovery time than was originally expected.
