At 2pm on Sunday 18th May, Charlotte Miller (pictured) will lead out Cardiff City Ladies football club onto the pitch at Rhayader Town appearing in their ninth Welsh Cup final.
Despite suffering the agony of relegation in only their second season in the National Division, Cardiff will be looking to continue their recent dominance of the Welsh title.
Cardiff have lifted the trophy the past five seasons and a record six times in total. Their recent record in the competition is somewhat daunting for their opponent which reads: Played 23, Won 23, Goals Scored 144 and Conceded only 5, with no team managing to score more than one goal in a game against Cardiff. Indeed their last defeat in the competition was at the hands on Barry Town, who have now disbanded, on 17th February 2002 at the quarter final stage.
Despite the daunting facts and figures the NEWI Wrexham ladies, featuring in their first Welsh Cup final, will be hoping to break this rather impressive grip Cardiff have on the cup.
NEWI Wrexham play in the North-Wales league and are currently placed third with only one defeat to league leaders Colwyn Bay tarnishing their record this season. They recently formed a partnership with Wrexham AFC that provided the team with equipment for training and matches.
The route to the final for Cardiff was pretty straightforward, despatching local rivals Swansea City 5-0 in the second round before defeating UWIC by the same score line in the Quarter Finals. A 3-1 victory over last season's runners-up, Caernarfon Town, saw Cardiff through to another final.
NEWI Wrexham thrashed Pennant Ladies 10-1 at home in the first round, followed by a grudge match with league rivals Colwyn Bay in the second round which was won 3-1. In the quarter finals Wrexham came through a 5 goal thriller as the victors by the odd goal against Welshpool Town before defeating Pontypridd Town by the same score in the semi finals.
The final will prove to be a very enjoyable event at Rhayader FC which will see the victor representing Wales in next season's UEFA Cup.
On paper this should be a straightforward result for the Champions, especially when their opponents have not played a competitive match since the start of March.
