Bluebirds Become Champions Of Wales For The Second Time In The Club’s History.

In a remarkable year for Cardiff City FC’s Women’s side, the Bluebirds became champions of Wales for the second time in the Club’s history.  

The side clinched the Adran Premier title with a 3-1 win over The New Saints, achieving the feat for the first time in ten years. 

With the Bluebirds needing just two points from their last three games to win the title, they went ahead against the Saints through wing-back Ffion Price, who is a passionate Cardiff City fan. 

After an equaliser for The New Saints, captain Siobhan Walsh, who has been a fantastic servant to the club for over a decade, scored twice to see the Bluebirds over the line. 

After achieving his first league title, manager Iain Darbyshire expressed great pride for his squad. 

“It’s everything we’ve worked towards for the past two years,” he began. “We’ve put a lot in place to build a successful group, but we’ve had to improve week-in, week-out and we’ve done that this season. 

“I’m so proud of the players, the staff and everyone behind the scenes. As a club, we’re in such a fantastic place across our three teams and I’m just so proud of everyone.” 

One of the Bluebirds’ standout performers in a fantastic campaign has been Seren Watkins. The talented midfielder highlighted the hard work that has gone into a successful season. 

“I’m over the moon. It’s something we’ve aimed towards for a very long time, we’ve worked really hard to get to and we deserve it.

“We’ve come from finishing third last season to winning the league and it just shows all the work that goes in behind the scenes. As a team, we’ve been fighting for each other in every match and we believe that we can go and win every game. We cannot wait to see what this squad can achieve in the future.”
