Cardiff City FC cemented themselves in third position in the Welsh Premier Women's League on Sunday, thanks to a 4-1 victory over PILCS.
The result takes them to within a single point of second placed Swansea City whilst trailing league leaders Cardiff Met Ladies by six points.
We talked to City captain Siobhan Walsh, who praised her young team for their performances so far this season whilst looking to build on their fourth place finish last time around:
WSS: PILCS are always one of the stronger teams in the league, would you say that is your best result of the season so far?
SW: Yes, it was important that we won, especially having lost to them twice last season. We knew they would be tough opposition and as a team we had a point to prove.
WSS: Was it a particularly important win after having lost to Swansea City in the last league game?
SW: Yes, as this win puts us in a greater position to compete and hopefully move further up the league.
WSS: That takes you to within a point of second place, are you satisfied with the way the season has gone so far?
SW: For the most part the season has gone well, however it was certainly disappointing to lose against Swansea especially after taking the lead. We are a young team and have a lot to learn in terms of our game management.
WSS: Do you feel overall that you are a stronger team this time around?
SW: We have a number of new young players that have integrated quite well. However, we have lost some experienced players and we need to continue to work hard for each other and hopefully the results will come.
WSS: This week you travel to Aberystwyth Town, who are much improved this season. Do you see this as a very important game now?
SW: With the top of the league always being so tight, every game is important as we need to take every possible point we can.
WSS: You still have a lot of interest in both Cup competitions and have a local derby in each quarter final (against Cardiff Met Ladies and Cyncoed Ladies), do you think both games will be a big occasion and good matches?
SW: I think any cup game is always a big occasion no matter who the competition although being local derbies does give both games an extra edge. We, as a team, definitely want to progress as far as possible in both cups and we will want to give the best performance we can.
WSS: What is the main aim for the team this season, to win silverware or to progress from last year?
SW: The aim is to progress year on year and whilst it would be fantastic to win the league, realistically we are aiming for one or both of the cups, whilst finishing as high as possible in the league.
Our thanks to Siobhan!
