Swansea City have had an excellent season and have gone very close to putting their name on three major trophies during the campaign.
After having been narrowly beaten 3-2 by PILCS in the League Cup Final, the Swans went on to win the FAW Women's Cup last week, winning 4-2 against Cardiff City FC in the Final.
On Sunday, they won 1-0 against Cardiff Met Ladies to prevent their opponents from being crowned as Welsh Premier Women's League Champions on the day and guarantee themselves a top two place. Swansea can still mathematically win the league although this is unlikely to happen realistically.
We talked to full back Lauren Hancock who has played a major part in Swansea's season and she admitted that winning the Welsh Cup has given the team a major boost in confidence, and looked forward to next season which she feels can be a great one for the club:
That was a great result on Sunday against Cardiff Met Ladies, did you think it was a merited one?
Yes definitely, I think the points were more important than the goal. It was a massive win for the girls and it was merited that we won.
With one or two exceptions, results have been a lot closer in the league this season. Do you think the gap is closing between the top clubs?
Yes it has definitely been closer this season and the league has been a lot more exciting. I think it will be even closer again next year.
Has there been a specific reason for Swansea City's great form, particularly in recent weeks?
No, I think the team has done really well this season, building from a young team last year and those players have now matured into senior players.
How much confidence do you think the team has gained from winning the Welsh Cup last week?
I think it's a massive boost for the girls and the club. It's a great achievement and I think it can be taken into next season and we can win many more.
Do you think there is a realistic chance of overhauling Cardiff Met on goal difference?
Realistically no, we just need to get maximum points from our last two games and see what happens.
Even if you can't do it, it would mean one trophy and two runners-up positions. Does that exceed your expectations at the start of the season?
No, because we start every season trying to win every competition we play in.
Are you confident that Swansea can go on from here and be even more successful next season, even if you don't quite make it this time?
I am very confident that we can go on and win the league next season, win the cups and qualify for the Champions League which has been our aim for the last couple of years.
