Preview | Wrexham Women vs Swansea City Women

17th September
Stacey John-Davis vs Swindon

Swansea City Women begin their 2023-24 Genero Adran Premier campaign - and a new era for the club - with a trip to newly-promoted Wrexham Women this afternoon (5.45pm KO).

The match, which will be shown live on S4C, marks the Swans first outing since their transition to semi-professional status over the summer, and provides an opportunity for the six summer signings to make their competitive bows.

Wrexham will also make their first outing as a semi-professional side as they return to the Genero Adran Premier for the first time since the 2014-15 season.
