The Welsh National Premier Women’s League Play-off was played at Llanidloes on Sunday between the winners of the southern and northern premier leagues, UWIC and Wrexham Ladies.

Not only was the crown of Welsh Premier Women’s League Champions at stake, but the winners would also represent Wales in the UEFA Women’s Champions League that starts in August.

In a quality, competitive match it was the students that prevailed by a 3-0 score line. Goals from Nadia Lawrence, Sophie Scherschel and Lauran Welsh suggests that it was a comfortable victory, but their success was due to an excellent all-round team performance and a great display by Welsh International goalkeeper, Sophie Dando against a very strong opposition. Player of the match went to UWIC’s Chloe Bassatt, deservedly so.

The students, who will be known as Cardiff Met WFC next season will venture into the unknown with a debut in the UEFA competition, following on from Swansea City Ladies who have represented Wales in the previous two seasons.

The highlights will be shown on Sgorio on S4C on Monday 14th May at 10pm (also available on catch up).

    About Nadeshiko League:

    I know most fans will view the game of Kobe, but I think I will tune my TV to Urawa vs. NTV on Saturday. Last week, the average age of their starting 11 were:

    Urawa = 21.2

    NTV = 21.0

    There is a slght difference, though. Urawa’s players are largely 21 plus/minus 2. NTV includes experienced players like Iwashimizu. But they promoted a number of teenagers from their youth team. The media dubs them the “JK”, which stands for “Joshi Kosei” (=high school girls.)

    Last week’s starting 11 and their ages.
