We talk to...Ria Hughes (Swansea City) - 22 Jan 2016 - Women's Football NewsAfter a long break over the Christmas and New Year period, Swansea City finally returned to action in the Welsh Premier Women's League on Sunday with a 3-0 victory over Rhyl & Prestatyn, which keeps them on the tails of leaders Cardiff Met Ladies. 
We talked to Swans player Ria Hughes, who was pleased with the team's performance on Sunday whilst also being confident that they can land a trophy this season: 
WSS: Well done on a good win on Sunday, were you satisfied overall with the way the team played?
RH: We as a team thought we played well considering we haven't played in so long and the condition of the pitch didn't help whatsoever.

WSS: Were there any concerns before the game that the team hadn't played for a long time?
RH: Not so much, we have trained hard over the Christmas period so we knew our fitness wouldn't be an issue.

WSS: Presumably the result was more important than anything else, to keep up the chase on Cardiff Met?
RH: Yes, every game that we play counts towards that chase as a simple draw or loss of a game will make it that much harder for us to catch them and preferably overtake them in the league.

WSS: Without wishing to tempt fate, the team's defensive record is excellent with only four goals conceded, is that a record you are proud of?
RH: Absolutely, we work hard as a back four but also the whole team has a contribution as we all help each other out and the fewer goals that go in the happier we are.

WSS: This week you take a break from the league to play Cardiff City FC in the League Cup, are you anticipating a good semi final?
RH: Yes, when we played them in a league game before Christmas it was a good but hard game to play. With the pressure of it being in a semi final I can only imagine the game to be a lot better.

WSS: After going so close to winning the League Cup last season, is there a confidence amongst the team that you can do it this time?
RH: 100%, the team has worked extremely hard this season and knowing we came so close last season just gives us the confidence to go all the way this time around.

WSS: Are you finding that the standard of the league keeps improving each season?
RH: Yes every year the league becomes more challenging and with new players joining teams the standard of football is rising. For us players in the league it is a positive move forward because all we want is good competitive football.
Our thanks to Ria!
