Third Championship for Swansea

Wales Premier League News - Third Championship for Swansea - 5 May 2017 - Women's Football News
 
Swansea City are celebrating being Welsh Premier Women's League Champions once again after a superb run of form which lasted throughout the campaign.
 
Things didn't get off to the best of starts for the Swans as they lost a thrilling match 5-4 against Abergavenny Women on the opening day of the season but that proved to be the only blip as they then embarked on a 17-match unbeaten run which took them beyond the reach of their rivals, which included reigning Champions Cardiff Met Ladies.
 
In all, Swansea kept 11 clean sheets in their 18 league matches, scoring 65 goals in total and winning the title by a margin of seven points. With the Championship comes the added bonus for the club of qualifying once again to play in next season's UEFA Women's Champions League.
 
Key results throughout the season included winning the return meeting with Abergavenny Women and a 2-1 victory over Cardiff Met Ladies in January. Perhaps the defining match of the season though came in March against another of their title rivals, Cardiff City FC. With five minutes remaining, Swansea trailed 3-2 but Katy Hosford levelled the scores and substitute Katie Davies headed in the winning goal in injury time, to seal three precious points for her side.
 
As well as winning the league title, Swansea competed well in the other major competitions, narrowly missing out on penalties to Cardiff Met in the FAW Women's Cup Final and losing in extra time to the same opponents in the League Cup semi finals.
 
Manager Ian Owen can now rightly claim to be amongst the most successful in the country having guided the club to their third Championship, having been in charge for their previous successes in 2010 and 2011. Alicia Powe is the team captain and Stacey John was the club's leading goalscorer with 23 in all competitions, although striker Jodie Passmore also played a key role in the season as she scored 22 times. Swansea also made a new signing this season, Stacey Webber who also scored two goals to help them win the league, and there was international recognition for the team as midfielder Emma Beynon achieved her first Wales senior cap this season in the Cyprus Cup, she also netted eight goals for the Swans Ladies across the season.
