Derby day to open title defence for Met

Promoted Briton Ferry start at home to Cardiff City

Cardiff Met Women will open up their Orchard WPWL title defence with a home derby against Cyncoed.

The champions, who clinched their fifth WPWL title win last season, are currently busy reinforcing their squad ahead of both the new season and their Champions League campaign next month, and face a tricky test to open 2018/19 against their neighbours, who defeated them in the WPWL League Cup final last year to win their first major silverware.

Newly promoted Briton Ferry Llansawel open up their campaign against Cardiff City, with the Bluebirds no doubt looking to start the season in much the same way as last year when they won their opening three games. Joel Hutton's side will no doubt prove a good early test for Ferry.

Last season's second and third placed sides meet in Llandarcy as Swansea play host to Abergavenny. Port Talbot will start the campaign with a long trip to the north coast to play Llandudno, and there's also the first north Wales derby of the season as Rhyl host Caernarfon.

Games between Met and the Swans are always ones to look out for, and the sides will first meet on MD5 (21/Oct) at Cyncoed Campus, with the return fixture schedule for the 10th of March.

The league will once again play the first half of the season before Christmas, stopping in December for a mid-season break before resuming on January 13th to play the remaining nine rounds of fixtures, with the last round schedule for April 28th.
