An interview with... Anya Welch (Briton Ferry Llansawel)
 Women's Football Wales Premier League News - 7 May 2021
Wales Premier League News - An interview with... Anya Welch (Briton Ferry Llansawel) - 7 May 2021 - Women's Football NewsIt has not been the easiest of seasons for Briton Ferry Llansawel in the Orchard Welsh Premier Women's League but the last couple of weeks have shown a lot of promise for them, with two successive 1-0 victories taking them to the verge of sixth place.
We talked to Briton Ferry midfielder Anya Welch, who admitted that the team's confidence has been boosted by their recent results and feels that the team can only improve from this point and going into next season:
WSS: Well done on a good win on Sunday, would you say that was one of your best results of the season?
AW: Obviously beating Aberystwyth last weekend was a great result, but the win against Cyncoed really solidified our competitiveness as a team as we push our way up the table, and challenge for their spot.
WSS: This came hot on the heels after beating Aberystwyth last weekend, how much confidence did you take from that win into the Cyncoed match?
AW: Beating Aberystwyth last weekend reinforced confidence in our ability to challenge in the league. The team has worked extremely hard this season and this result was a testament to the team's commitment and capability.
WSS: The goal from Lucy Powell came as early as the seventh minute, did things become tougher as the match went on?
AW: After Lucy's brilliant goal, we continued to put Cyncoed under pressure with a powerful attack. Even with what felt like an endless number of injuries towards the end of the game, the girls were resilient and backed each other up in every single challenge. Overall, it was a hearty team performance.
WSS: It is also two clean sheets in a row now, that will surely make your defence and goalkeeper very happy?
AW: I think this has made the team, as a whole, very proud, and has reminded us how far we have come as a group. This form doesn't surprise me; I wouldn't want to come up next to our skipper either! Hopefully, we can continue this trend over the next few games.
WSS: It has been a stop-start season for the league, but do you think that playing regularly in the last few weeks has helped the team find its best form?
AW: Playing regularly has definitely allowed us to get back into a rhythm, and it's a shame that this form has come towards the end of the season. But we have been in such a privileged position to be able to play during such an unprecedented time, so it is hard to complain. Hopefully, next season will be a bit more normal, and we will be able to replicate these solid performances.
WSS: The Cyncoed win has taken your points tally into double figures, just one point behind sixth place and a large margin ahead of the bottom two. Are you now setting your sights on a top six finish?
AW: We have the ability, determination, and support as a club to be challenging Cyncoed for their place. It is important that we put 100% into our remaining two fixtures, which we are more than capable to get something from.
WSS: This Sunday you are away to Cardiff City, what are your thoughts ahead of that game?
AW: It's going to be an exciting occasion for everyone having the opportunity to play in Cardiff Stadium. There is no bobbly pitch that we can blame out touch on! Hopefully, we will have most of our team back fit and ready to put in a strong performance. The results of our last two league games have stood us in good stead for the challenge.
WSS: Do you feel that the team is more comfortable playing at the top level now, and can you push on and continue to improve next season? 
AW: The last few seasons in the WPWL have been a journey, but we are now at the stage that we are a competitive team in the league, grinding out solid performances week-in-week-out. We also have a great bunch of players pushing through the ranks, five of which recently had their first-team debuts. I can only see the team becoming more of a nuisance for the opposition, every week. Next season will be our best one yet.
Our thanks to Anya!
