UWIC have enjoyed a terrific season and topped it off recently by winning the Welsh Premier Women's League with a 3-0 victory over Wrexham in the Final.
Goalkeeper Sophie Dando was a big part of that success and she told Women's Soccer Scene they want to repeat that again next time around. "In the BUCS, our first team won the Women's Southern Premier League and our seconds won the league below, but in the BUCS Cups both our teams lost out in the quarter finals. So next year we will be looking to go further than the quarter finals and retain our titles.
"Our Sunday team won the Welsh Premier League and were finalists in the FAW Welsh Cup, losing on penalties to Cardiff."
The title winning victory Wrexham guaranteed UWIC a place in the UEFA Women's Champions League next season but Sophie revealed there had been a little extra drama beforehand. "Whilst on our way to the play-off, we realised we had forgotten the kit and had to turn around," she laughed.
"We have a settled team, in a football sense - everyone puts the work in and is committed to the club, which is why UWIC as a Sunday team and a BUCS team have done so well this season."
UWIC captain Siobhan Humphrey was delighted with the way they played on the day against Wrexham, saying: "It was a fantastic performance from every one of us in the team, the passing patterns and quality of football that was displayed showed what we are about as a team and that our hard work and commitment throughout the season has paid off considerably. We were able to keep the ball well and dictate the tempo of play to Wrexham who in the end were unable to deal with the levels of pressure and attacking play that we displayed throughout the game.
"Europe is a brilliant opportunity for all of the girls at the club to play on the big stage and represent UWIC university on a large scale. The level of competition is going to be a lot higher than what we are used to so a lot of hard graft and training will be required of the next few months to step up to this in order to give us the best possible chance when we go out to compete. The girls are extremely excited for what is to come and we are all itching at the chance to play in such a brilliant tournament and standard of women's football."
