Genero Adran Premier round-up | Cardiff City defeat rivals Swansea City to clinch title

Cardiff City secured the Genero Adran Premier title with a 4-0 home win over south Wales rivals Swansea City on Wednesday evening. 

The Swans had triumphed on their last visit to the capital, but the Bluebirds made a fast start as they ensured that there was no repeat. 

Eliza Collie opened the scoring in the 15th minute, calmly tucking the ball home for her 16th league goal of the campaign after Molly Kehoe’s shot had been saved. 

Rhianne Oakley scored a goal either side of the break, as she fired home from a tight angle after dispossessing Jess Williams in the first half before beating Claire Skinner one-on-one in the second period. 

Kehoe rounded off the scoring, latching onto Emma Beynon’s ball over the top before lifting it over the onrushing Skinner. 

The Bluebirds will lift the Genero Adran Premier trophy after their final league game of the season against Wrexham at the Cardiff City Stadium on Sunday April 7. 

Wrexham earned their first win of phase two as they triumphed 2-0 over Aberystwyth Town at Park Avenue. 

Brooke Cairns netted her first goal for the Red Dragons to open the scoring in the ninth minute, turning home Carra Jones’ cross at the near post. 

Jones got on the scoresheet herself in the 38th minute when she lashed a fierce strike from outside of the box which beat Aber’s stand-in goalkeeper Amy Jenkins. 

Victory for Steve Dale’s side confirms a top-three finish in their first season in the Genero Adran Premier. 

The New Saints made it back-to-back wins as they defeated already-relegated Pontypridd United 4-0 at Park Hall. 

Chantelle Teare scored a brace in the opening 16 minutes, first turning in Evie Williams’ cross before picking up Mel Barlow’s mishit shot and firing home. 

Barlow added a third goal before half-time as she dispossessed Pontypridd’s defence, drove forward and found the net. 

Teare completed her hat-trick in the 64th minute when she received the ball over the top from Izzy Redding, rounded Ponty goalkeeper Klaudia Wojtyczka and finished into the empty net. 

Victory for Greg Draper’s side in either of their final two games will confirm top spot in the Plate Conference.

Cardiff Met triumphed 2-0 against Barry Town United at Cyncoed Campus, which saw them leapfrog the Linnets into sixth place in the table. 

After a goalless first half, Esme Kilburn-Thomas continued her impressive recent form with a brace after the break – both goals set up by Ellie Preece. Kilburn-Thompson now has seven in her last five matches. 

It was a feisty affair at Cyncoed, with no fewer than seven yellow cards shown by referee Dale Randall throughout the evening.
