Swansea City Women midfielder Sammy Wynne was thrilled to score her first goal for the club she has supported all her life, and help her side earn their first three points of the season against Barry Town United Women.

Wynnne, who has supported the Swans since childhood, got her first start for the club since joining from Oxford, having made her debut off the bench in her side’s season opener at Wrexham.

She made the most of her opportunity, netting the opening goal in the first half after a great ball from Steph Turner sent her through on goal.

Two second-half own goals from Barry would seal a 3-0 win for the Swans and put them top of the Genero Adran Premier.

And 21-year-old Wynne was thrilled to open her tally for the Swans and to do so in front of her family.

“It’s a moment that I’ll remember forever,” said Wynne.

“I can’t believe it, I’m not one to score every week, so to get one is special, for the club that I love and on my home debut as well, I’m over the moon.

“My nan and my parents were here and obviously they weren’t able to come to as many games when I was away in England, so for them to be here and see that makes it even more special.”

Wynne also felt the Swans had made an important step forward in their work in possession, having been disappointed with that aspect of their showing on the opening weekend.

“We kept the ball a lot better, it was a focus all week so we had to make sure that we did that,” she added.

“Barry were organised and compact so it was really important that we moved it from side to side to try and break them down and I think the team did it really well this week.

“The games come thick and fast so the moment is really important, the win will give us the confidence to build on and put on a performance next week, which will be a tough one away from home.”
