Swansea complete the double

Wales Premier League News - Swansea complete the double - 31 May 2021 - Women's Football News
Swansea City have successfully retained the Orchard Welsh Premier Women's League title and completed a league and cup double after picking up the result they needed in their final match of the season against Abergavenny Women.
Colin Staples' side required a point in order to ensure finishing above Cardiff Met Women but found themselves frustrated by a determined Abergavenny side who needed to avoid defeat themselves to take fourth place ahead of Port Talbot Town.
The first half was largely a tightly contested one with the Swans having narrowly the better of matters but with Abergavenny defending extremely well, and well led by Ceri Hudson, they found it difficult to create any clear cut chances. Kelly Adams tried her luck from distance with an effort which flew straight at Zara Pernalete in the Abergavenny goal, and Stacey John-Davis was unable to direct a near post header on target from a Katy Hosford cross.
Half time came with the scoreline goalless and the pattern of the match continued after the break with Swansea dictating possession but still being unable to pierce Aber's back line.
However the chance arrived five minutes after the restart, when Laura Davies was brought down in the area and a penalty was awarded. Emma Beynon stepped up to take but Pernalete pulled off a fine save to keep her side on level terms.
Pernalete was having a great game in goal for Aber, first saving from Chloe Chivers and then making an even better stop, diving to parry away a firmly struck shot from the edge of the area by Hosford.
Swansea continued to press for the goal they craved but Abergavenny, to their huge credit, were in no mood to be beaten. Chivers drilled a powerful strike just over the bar and Megan Jones cleared a Shaunna Jenkins header off the line to give themselves a hard earned point whilst Swansea were able to start celebrations once the final whistle blew.
Swansea City: Claire Skinner, Ellie Lake, Shaunna Jenkins, Alicia Powe, Ria Hughes, Tija Richardson, Emma Beynon, Laura Davies (sub Chloe Chivers 62mins), Kelly Adams, Katy Hosford, Stacey John-Davis. Subs not used: Gemma Border, Nieve Jenkins, Kate Searle, Kelsey Thomas, Jess Williams, Chloe Tiley.
Abergavenny Women: Zara Pernalete, Megan Jones, Elena Scrivens, Jessica Bennett, Olivia Barnes (sub Caitlin Davies 67mins), Sian Bull, Ceri Hudson, Lyndsey Davies, Eliza Atkins (sub Ffion David 75mins), Lauren Boyd, Amy Williams.
