Orchard WPWL Preview 21/10

League action returns at Met and Swansea go head to head

The Orchard Welsh Premier Women’s League returns after a break, and there’s a fiery clash in store at Cyncoed as Cardiff Met host Swansea City.

The sides in second and third respectively in the table have a chance to claim top spot, with Port Talbot’s match against Caernarfon postponed due to both teams having to play rearranged FAW Women’s Cup fixtures, which were called off last week due to Storm Callum.

The two sides were also drawn against each other in the Second Round of the FAW Women’s Cup this week, and the rivalry that has developed between the two over the last few seasons will reignite on Sunday.

Met are unbeaten so far, and Swans have won their last three games having lost their opener at home to Abergavenny.

The only other game this weekend sees Llandudno host Briton Ferry. The Seasiders come into the game having registered a big 13-0 win over Corwen in the Women’s Cup last weekend, but are still looking for their first league points of the campaign.

Ferry meanwhile didn’t play last weekend, having been given a walkover after Caerphilly Castle withdrew from the cup. They registered their first win of the season last time out away at Caernarfon, and will be relishing the trip north to the coast as they look to double their points tally.

The other two scheduled games have also been postponed: Abergavenny’s trip to Rhyl because the former are in Women’s Cup action, and Cardiff City v Cyncoed due to international call ups.
