Abergavenny, Port Talbot Town and Cardiff Met all went above Cardiff City FC, who had led the WPWL table at the start of play.

Orchard Welsh Premier Women’s League – Sept 23

Briton Ferry Llansawel 1-6 Swansea City
Cardiff Met 1-0 Cardiff City FC
Cyncoed 10-1 Caernarfon Town
Llandudno 0-5 Abergavenny
Rhyl 0-5 Port Talbot Town

Abergavenny are new leaders after a 5-0 victory at Llandudno, where Laura-Jane Davies netted a hat-trick. Gaby Hughes and Lyndsey Davies also found the net for the visitors, who have still to concede a goal.

Port Talbot are now second on goal-difference having won by a similar scoreline at Rhyl, Laura-May Walkley featuring with three of their goals.

Cardiff Met were the third team to overtake the Bluebirds, whom they edged 1-0 in a local derby. Robyn Pinder scored after just 5 minutes, Alana Murphy hit the bar and had another effort tipped over before the break. Met had a goal ruled out early in the second half and despite City’s efforts an equaliser was not forthcoming.

Swansea City made it two wins from three when hitting hosts Briton Ferry for six. Stacey John-Davis and an Emma Beynon effort going in off a defender soon had City in command. However, it wasn’t until the second 45 that Jodie Passmore got the third, Beynon and John-Davis doubled their tallies and Sarah Adams scored inbetween, with the home side getting a late consolation.

Cyncoed got off the mark in style by thrashing visitors Caernarfon Town 10-1. Kirstie Pervin-Davies, Lucy Attwood and Lauren Harris each grabbed two, Clare Daley, Rosina Hill and Caitlin Bevan also on target, while Cara Hughes conceded an own-goal and Ffion Owen got a consolation for the visitors.

Meanwhile, the draw for the League Cup quarter-finals has been made and features a re-match of last season’s final between holders Cyncoed and neighbours Cardiff Met.
