Ladies


Swansea City Ladies won their tenth consecutive Welsh Premier Women's League game with a 3-0 victory over Aberystwyth Town Ladies at Llandarcy Academy of Sport.
The hosts were led out by Baglan Boys and Girls Club's Under-7 girls team who participate in Swansea City Community Trust's Premier League Kicks programme, as the club continued their International Women's Day celebrations.
The Swans started with good intensity and created chances from the start including some inviting crosses from Katy Hosford.



It didn't take long for the home side to break the deadlock as Jodie Passmore opened the scoring in the 17th minute with a free-kick from the edge of the box.
Stacey John went close to doubling the hosts' lead but her strike from inside the box was just off target.
New signing Stacey Webber made it a debut to remember as she netted in the 22nd minute with an impressive low shot from 35 yards to double the Swans' lead.
A Passmore free-kick from near the half-way line was just kept out by Aberystwyth's keeper on the half-hour mark as the Swans chased a third, whilst new signing Kirsty O'Donnell narrowly missed the woodwork.
After the break, a great strike from Kelly Newcombe just flew past the left post but midfielder Katy Hosford sealed victory for the Swans in the 88th minute with a goal from close range.



After the match, scorer Webber was full of praise for her team-mates. She said: "We played well as a team. We dominated defensively, which allowed us time on the ball to create some good chances in the final third.
"The conditions in the first half were pretty tough, but we worked hard and got the result we wanted.
"It feels great to score on my debut and it gives me a little more confidence in my ability going into future games.
"The girls have all made me feel really welcome and I have settled into the team.
