Report: Briton Ferry 1 Swans Ladies 6

25th September 2018

The Swans Ladies made it two away wins on the bounce after hitting local rivals Briton Ferry for six at the Old Road Ground.

A dominant display from Ian Owen’s side saw them beat the Welsh Premier Women’s League newcomers 6-1.

The win came on the back of a 4-0 win over Caernarfon in their previous outing.

The Swans started strongly at Briton Ferry, with striker Stacey John-Davis breaking the deadlock in the fourth minute before an Emma Beynon shot ricocheted off a defender for an own goal.

The Swans continued to control the play for long periods, but would have to wait until the hour mark to add a third, with last season’s top scorer Jodie Passmore coming off the bench and making and an immediate impact as she bagged her second of the season.

Beynon soon added her name to the scoresheet to make it four, before winger Sarah Adams took the Swans' tally to five goals less than a minute later.

Ferry grabbed a consolation goal with seven minutes remaining but it was immediately cancelled out by John-Davis, who scored her fourth goal in just two games.

The Swans' victory put them fifth in the league – just three points off the top spot – and the game also saw 16-year-old Lani Hogben make her competitive debut.

The midfielder, who joined the club in the summer, came off the bench midway through the second half for her first foray in senior football.

“Our momentum is growing week by week,” said Owen. “Our recent summer signings have really strengthened the squad and this result shows that.”

The Swans next face Llandudno in the WPWL this Sunday at Llandarcy Academy of Sport. The game kicks off at 2pm and entry is free.
