Women's Football News
PILCS Ladies have enjoyed an excellent first season in the Shared Access Welsh Premier Women's League, finishing in the runners-up spot with sixteen wins in their 20 league matches.
The club was only formed back in 2011 and have had a meteoric rise up the women's football pyramid in Wales in a small space of time, winning the South Wales Women's League title a year ago on their way to their lofty position this time around. The 'Green Army' also reached the semi finals of the FAW Women's Cup where they were narrowly beaten by Cardiff Met Ladies, but gained revenge a month later when they became the only team to record a victory against the 'treble' winners this season.
Kate Jeremiah has been a key player in midfield for PILCS during that time and she told Women's Soccer Scene of the club's pride about the season just finished.
Congratulations for finishing runners-up in the league in your first season after promotion, has that exceeded your expectations at the start?
At the start of the season we were hoping to be mid-table and comfortable and could only dream of a top four finish as this was our first season in the league and weren't sure of the standard.
Do you feel a little unlucky at not winning the league after picking up 50 points?
No, we don't count ourselves as unlucky as Cardiff Met are worthy Champions and we're proud that our small club finished runners-up.
How have you found the standard in the Welsh Premier Women's League this season?
It has been a real mixture of standards but overall it has been pretty high and will get stronger still next season.
The likes of Lyndsey Davies have been prolific in front of goal this season but has there been anybody in the team who has performed well without getting the recognition she deserves?
Lyndsey may have been our top scorer but we are a team and have superb players throughout. Our player of the season was 16-year-old centre half Fiona Dodge, who is captain of the Wales Under-17s. I think it would be unfair to mention others because the whole squad has put us where we are.
Which do you think was the team's best performance of the season?
Our best performance came when we beat the Champions, Cardiff Met, 3-1 on their own patch in front of the Sgorio cameras but our manager, my dad Wayne, enjoyed the comeback against Cardiff City from 3-0 down to draw 4-4. I was on holiday that day!
Are you confident that you can narrow the gap on Cardiff Met next season?
Closing the gap will be difficult against a team with so many resources compared to us but hey, we aren't afraid of anyone now!
Looking beyond that, do you feel that the future is bright from PILCS?
The future's bright, the future's GREEN! We have an Under-14 team starting up next season so things look rosy in that direction.
