AFTER a competitive and rollercoaster season Dafen Ladies AFC have been crowned champions of the WWWGL league.
Speaking on the success, their manager Yvonne Collins said: “We set themselves a realistic target to win every game at home in the season and see where that could take us. With one game remaining at home, whilst keeping a 100% win record, we have managed to secure the league title with a game to spare.”
The first half of the season was filled with optimism, joy and disappointment. Losing two games away from home to title challengers Pontarddulais and Rhos Ladies made it clear that this season was going to be a competitive one.
Improvements had to be made but team ethos and the family mentality made sure that spirits remained high. The importance of setting realistic aims throughout the season made sure that everyone involved had something to strive for that was achievable. So after a 6-1 win at home vs Penclawdd Ladies, Dafen were crowned champions.
Head Coach Martyn Bowles said: “It’s very important now that we focus on the next couple of games to finish the season and perform as well as we can.
Yvonne added: “Since being with the majority of the girls over several seasons I’ve seen them progress and improve every year. Winning the league this season is what they all deserve for the commitment and loyalty they have shown to Dafen Ladies AFC.”
The Ladies will now play in the Cup Final on Saturday (May 12) with kick off at 12:45pm.
