Swans Ladies face champions in opener

Ladies

Runners-up Swansea City Ladies will face defending champions Cardiff Met in the opening fixture of the Welsh Premier Women’s League season.

Ian Owen’s side kick off their campaign against a Met side which went on to complete a domestic treble in 2018-19, adding the FAW Women’s Cup and League Cup to their trophy cabinet.

In a busy opening month, the league opener against Met (September 8) and the first home game of the season against Aberystwyth Town (September 22) come inbetween three League Cup matches.

Having finished runners-up to Met in the league, Owen’s side will also look to go one better in the League Cup, having falling to their Cardiff counterparts in the final last season.

And manager Owen is hopeful the team’s preparations over the summer will ensure they are in prime shape come the opening fixture with the champions.

“Pre-season is going well,” said Owen. “Our fitness levels are rising by the session and already I can see there is a hunger amongst the players to improve on last season’s performance.

“Our first league match just happens to put us up against Cardiff Met. We are under no illusions this will be a tough game and even at that early stage I believe it will play a big part in who will challenge for the title.

“The game as always will be a great advert for our league and the female game in general - it will certainly be one not to miss.”
