Swans Ladies relishing final challenge

4th April 2019

Swansea City Ladies are relishing the chance to win more silverware when they face Cardiff Met in the final of the Welsh Premier Women's League Cup on Friday night (7.30pm).

If Ian Owen’s side emerge victorious at Stebonheath Park it will be their second piece of silverware in as many seasons, having claimed the FAW Women's Cup last season with a 2-1 win over Cardiff City.

Swansea's route to the final saw them squeeze past Port Talbot Town in the quarter-final thanks to Stacey John-Davis’ extra-time winner.

But, in contrasting circumstances, they eased past Rhyl 7-0 in the semi-final at Llandarcy with Katy Hosford bagging herself a hat-trick.

Owen's side are unbeaten in 10 matches in all competitions and they head into the final with high spirits.

“The team is playing some good football of late, there is a great feeling amongst the squad, and everybody is in fine form," said Owen.

Cardiff Metropolitan made easy work of Cyncoed beating them 5-0, while Kerry Harris’ side were pushed to the limit by rivals Cardiff City at the Cyncoed campus with Robyn Pinder bagging the winner in the 74th minute.

Tickets are £3 for adults, while entry is free for children and OAPs at the home of Llanelli Town.
