The new Genero Adran League got underway for the first time on Sunday and the Premier Division's first ever leaders are Cardiff City Women, who got off to a strong start with a 4-0 victory away to Port Talbot Town.
The Bluebirds took the lead on the stroke of half time through Phoebie Poole and after the break, an own goal doubled their advantage before Zoe Atkins made it three and Poole completed the scoring with her second late on.
The fastest start was made by Aberystwyth Town as they won 3-1 against Barry Town Utd. Aber took the lead in the opening minute through Elin Jones and Amy Jenkins made it two from the penalty spot, midway through the first half. Taite Trivett pulled one back for Barry early in the second half but Aberystwyth made the game safe just after the hour when Libby Isaac scored their third goal.
The opening day saw Cardiff Met Women host champions Swansea City in a live televised clash on S4C and it produced a match as tight as anticipated. Met took a fourteenth minute lead with a goal from Emily Allen and after the break, Stacey John-Davis brought Swansea back on level terms. The game remained in the balance until a minute from time, when Shaunna Jenkins scored to give the Swans a 2-1 victory.
Pontypridd Town were another team to win 2-1 away from home, against The New Saints. TNS also went ahead after fourteen minutes thanks to Francesca Scott, with an Alison Witts penalty bringing Pontypridd level six minutes later and Witts scored what proved to be the winner on the stroke of half time.
The North and South divisions also started their seasons and produced plenty of goals - 32 and 17 respectively.
Connah's Quay Nomads made a powerful start to life in the North Division with a 14-1 victory over Denbigh Town whilst Wrexham netted six times without reply against CPDG Pwllheli. Llandudno enjoyed a good trip over to Anglesey with a 4-1 success at Llanfair Utd and Bethel Ladies defeated Airbus UK Broughton 5-1.
In the South Division, Abergavenny Women were quick out of the blocks with a nine-goal blast against Swansea University. There were victories for Talycopa LAFC and Cardiff Bluebelles, whilst Cascade Youth Club were narrow 1-0 winners over Briton Ferry Llansawel in a clash between two teams who were in the Welsh Premier Women's League last season.
