Europe Beckons For UWIC

The Welsh Premier League Play-off at Llanidloes on Sunday saw UWIC defeat Wrexham to book a first ever place in the UEFA Champions League.

Not only was the crown of Welsh Premier League Champions at stake though, as the winners would also represent Wales in the UEFA Women's Champions League that starts in August.

In a quality, competitive match it was the students that prevailed by 3-0, a score line that flattered them somewhat. Goals from Nadia Lawrence, Sophie Scherschel and Lauran Welsh suggests that it was a comfortable victory, but their success was to a large extent due to an excellent displays by Welsh International goalkeeper, Sophie Dando and 'Player of the Match' Chloe Bassett.

So the students, who will be known as Cardiff Met. Ladies AFC next season will venture into the unknown with a debut in the UEFA competition, following on from Swansea City Ladies, who have represented Wales in the previous two seasons.
