Carmarthen-born Emily Thomas is looking forward to playing in her home town on one of the biggest occasions – a cup semi-final.
Thomas is one of the stars who have got Aberystwyth Town to their first FAW Women’s Cup semi-final in 12 years – and on Sunday 19 February, she and the rest of the Seasiders will be at Carmarthen’s Richmond Park to take on Briton Ferry for a place in the final.
The 18-year-old hopes that the town will turn out in their numbers to support a local girl.
And she has her fingers crossed that she’ll be able to play in two cup finals before the end of the season – the week beforehand, the Green & Blacks travel to Cardiff Met in the semi-finals of another cup, the Genero Adran Trophy.
“I’m very excited to be going into two semi-finals – it’s just pure class from the girls to be honest,” she said. “If we work hard and take our chances, there’s nothing stopping us from reaching two finals now.”
