Last season, they missed out on the title to Swansea City but returned determined to regain top spot this time around, with a 3-2 win at Port Talbot Town in their opening game and an impressive 5-0 victory over Abergavenny Women. Indeed, Met kept on winning, including both matches against title holders Swansea City and Lauren Townsend's late winner in their 2-1 victory over the Swans in January looked to be a pivotal moment in the race.
After twelve successive victories had taken them well clear, the winning run was halted when they were held to a draw by Rhyl Ladies and Abergavenny gained revenge for that earlier defeat by winning the return meeting. Met got back on the winning track though and three victories in a row confirmed them as Champions once again, putting themselves beyond the reach of runners-up Swansea with a 1-0 win away to Llandudno Ladies.
Dr Kerry Harris was once again the architect of their success by leading them to another league title, with Tija Richardson as captain. Jasmine Simpson topped their scoring charts with 16 league goals to her name, with Naomi Clipston also getting into double figures.
"We had some very close games this season," secretary and full back Sophie Scherschel told Women's Soccer Scene. "There were several, including both the fixtures against Swansea, where we came from behind so we credit our attitude and belief in those matches."
"It's such a great feeling to win the league again and it is testament to all the hard work we have put in over the season as a squad," added defender Rebecca Mathias. "There have been no easy games this season and each team has made it hard for us to get the win."
Cardiff Met Ladies' title triumph also means that they will once again compete in the UEFA Women's Champions League next season, with the qualifying group matches set to take place in August.
