The season may only in be in its early stages in the Orchard Welsh Premier Women's League but it has been a very promising start for last season's runners-up Swansea City, who went to the top of the table on Sunday after beating previous leaders Cardiff City Women 2-0.
We talked to Swansea striker Stacey John-Davis, who scored in the victory over Cardiff and has been in excellent form in front of goal in the campaign so far. She was understandably pleased, not only with the performance and result against Cardiff but overall with the way the team has started a season in which they have not been playing regularly every week:
WSS: Congratulations on a fine win on Sunday, how tough a game was it for you against the early leaders?
SJD: It was a very tough game to be involved in. Cardiff are a good, organised side and they were hard to break down, but as a team we were happy to come away with all three points and push on for the rest of the season.
WSS: Do you think it was it a game where the first goal was always going to be extra important?
SJD: Yes, as a team we knew that whoever scored first would have gained a lot of momentum in the game, that being said, we knew as a team we were capable of winning the match.
WSS: The result has taken you top of the league, which must look good even at this early stage?
SJD: Of course, as a team this is where we want to be, but we also know it is a long season to go yet and a lot of tough games to be played.
WSS: It has been a difficult start for you, having already played the reigning Champions Cardiff Met as well as an in-form Cardiff City side, so you must be delighted with the way things have gone?
SJD: Yeah it has been a tough start but as a team, I feel we took this in our stride, to which we are very happy with the performances we have all put in.
WSS: It can't have helped though that it has been mainly a stop-start season so far with four games in eight weeks, has that made things a little more difficult for you?
SJD: Yeah, the stop start is frustrating, both individually as a player and collectively as a team when we are looking to get into a good run of form, but I feel we have all dealt with this well and hopefully with the run of games coming up, we can keep the momentum going.
WSS: Both of your next two games are against Abergavenny, in the League Cup this week and then in the league the following Sunday. You have had some great matches with them in recent years, can you see this being the same?
SJD: Abergavenny are always a tough and physical side to go and play, they are an organised outfit so I am sure it is going to be another exciting game to be a part of.
Our thanks to Stacey!
