Cardiff Met LFC Secure Fifth League Title With Win In Llandudno to be Crowned Welsh Premier League Champs

​24/04/2018

Cardiff Met Ladies Football Club last weekend secured the Women's Welsh Premier League title with a tightly contested 1-0 victory over Llandudno Ladies and will now progress to the UEFA Women's Champions League qualifying rounds.

Despite the pressure going into fixture, Cardiff Met seized the initiative early on when Naomi Clipson tapped home from close range following a fourth minute Lauren Townsend cross.

Having gone ahead early in the game, the visitors put on a disciplined performance to keep their hosts at bay and run out 1-0 winners – securing the title in the process.

Victory saw the Archers hit 46 points from their 17 games, claiming the title in an emphatic run that has seen them record just one loss, having won 15 of their fixtures.

This is the fifth time that Cardiff Met have won the top division, as they successfully reclaimed the trophy from rivals Swansea City.

Met will now represent Welsh football on the European stage, with the league title meaning they have secured qualification to the prestigious UEFA Women's Champions League.

Speaking on the success, Director of Women's Football Kerry Harris said: "It's a great feeling to have reclaimed the title, the disappointment of last season spurned the girls on to ensure they didn't have the same feeling this time around.

"To have gotten to this point and won 15 of our games is testament to the professional approach that every player and member of the coaching staff has approached the campaign with."

"We can now look ahead to competing in next season's Champions League – it's a truly unique position for an institute of higher education to be able to offer the opportunity for students to go on and play at the top level of European football!

"Thursday will be a celebration of this great achievement, but we will still be looking to maintain our standards and finish with a win."

Her side next make the short journey to Cyncoed Ladies as they look to finish the campaign in style.
