Swans Ladies lift silverware ahead of new season

18th August

Swansea City Ladies head into the new season on the back of winning the Nottingham International Cup.
The competition provided a chance for a young squad to prepare for the forthcoming 2015-16 campaign in the Welsh Women's Premier League.
The Swans qualified from their group after wins over Stoke City (2-1) and Birkenhead (3-0) before beating Welsh rivals Llandudno 3-0 in the semi-final.
And goals from Katie Davies and a long-range effort from Amanda John against Northwich Vixens in the final secured the trophy for the Swans.
Ian Owen's side kicked off their pre-season campaign against Wales Under-19s at Newport's Dragon Park earlier this month, with a host of new signings featuring as the Swans narrowly lost 1-0.  
However, following the success in Nottingham, the side also lifted silverware at the FIFA Live your Goals Festival in Aberystwyth.
The Swans kick-off their Welsh Women's Premier League campaign away at Rhyl and Prestatyn Ladies on Sunday, September 13.
