Swansea City Ladies came from behind to win late on at Cardiff Met as the Genero Adran Premier League kicked off.

Adran Premier

Aberystwyth Town 3-1 Barry Town United
Port Talbot Town 0-4 Cardiff City FC
Cardiff Met 1-2 Swansea City
The New Saints 1-2 Pontypridd Town

Cardiff Met led through Emily Allen’s fine 14th-minute finish but defending champions Swansea levelled four minutes into the second half through Stacey John-Davis. Shauna Jenkins then popped up with the decider in the penultimate minute of the ninety.

Cardiff City’s Phoebe Poole scored very late in either half during a 4-0 victory at Port Talbot. Chelsey Harris conceded an own-goal and Zoe Atkins got the Bluebirds other second-half goal.

Aberystwyth Town’s Elin Jones netted seconds into the new season and an Amy Jenkins penalty gave them a 2-0 interval lead. Taite Trivett pulled one back for newcomers Barry Town at the start of the second half, only for Libby Isaac to restore the two-goal cushion for Aber.

The New Saints scored first through Francesca Scott as they looked to make a winning top-flight debut but Pontypridd Town (formerly Cyncoed) turned it round with a first-half Alison Witts double, which included a penalty.
