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).
