PREVIEW | Wrexham AFC Women vs Swansea City (Adran Trophy)

Wales’ top team travels to North Wales

19 December 2021

Wrexham AFC Women take on the top team in Wales for the first time, when Swansea City travel north for the Adran Trophy second round fixture.

Back-to-back Welsh champions Swansea, who sit top of the Adran Premier again this year with 13 wins and a draw from 14 games, are huge favourites for the game, which takes place on December 19 at Brymbo Sports & Social Club, and kicks off at 2pm.

Super Swans

With a division separating the two teams, Wrexham – who finished runners-up in their group to qualify for this stage – were always going to be underdogs.

But the task facing Steve Dale’s side is as tough as could possibly be after the draw paired Wrexham with Swansea City – the best team in the country.

Swansea are back-to-back Welsh champions, unbeaten in the league for more than three years, and have won 13 from 14 so far in this season’s Adran Premier campaign.

The Swans have also represented Wales in the UEFA Women’s Champions League.

Winning streak

Wrexham actually go into this game with the longer winning streak, however – the Red Dragons having won their last four in a row under Steve Dale.

Swansea dropped points for the only time this season with a goalless draw against Aberystwyth but have since bounced back to winning ways by beating TNS and Port Talbot.

The Swans come into the match on the back of a 6-0 win against the latter – Katy Hosford and Karmyn Carter both netted twice, and Stacey John-Davis and Nia Rees were also on target.

Wrexham, meanwhile, came from 3-1 down to beat Llandudno Ladies last time out – becoming the first team to beat Llandudno in the league this season.

Rosie Hughes opened the scoring before the visitors hit back to take a commanding lead into the break. In the second-half, Libby Mackenzie pulled one back before TJ Dickens’ equaliser. Rosie Hughes then scored a stoppage-time winner, and Rebecca Pritchard sealed victory even later on.

Team News

Defender Erin Lovett is suspended after her red card in the final Adran Trophy group game against Airbus UK Ladies in October.

Ella Clifton-Stringer is struggling to overcome injury, meanwhile, and Abbey Hughes remains a long-term defensive injury absentee too, leaving Wrexham light in defence.

Under-19s Lili Jones and Mia Roberts will be in contention to start as a result, while fellow Under-19 Amber Lightfoot is also available again.

REPORT | Wrexham AFC Women 0-6 Swansea City Ladies

Brave Reds bow out of Adran Trophy

19 December 2021

Wrexham AFC Women bravely bowed out of the Adran Trophy this afternoon, exiting with a 6-0 loss to Adran Premier leaders Swansea City.

Six first half goals from the visiting Swans was enough to see the side through, yet Wrexham put in a stellar second half performence leaving Steve Dale's side with plenty to be proud of.

Swansea came into the game without losing a match in a staggering three years. The leaders of the Welsh top tier opened the scoring on six minutes via Chloe Chivers and doubled it two minutes later through Karmyn Carter.

Carter made it three just before the 20 minute mark before Laura Davies' strike. Moments before half-time Ellie Lake was in on the act before the American winger Carter sealed the sixth heading into the break.

Half-Time: Wrexham 0-6 Swansea City

After the break, Wrexham appeared to have settled a bit more. The first half saw plenty of big challenges and heart from Dale's side, but with a continuous wave of attack from City, it was down to Wrexham to avoid further leaks.

A scoreless second half would be a massive achievment when considering the gap between the two teams - and the Wrexham defence would ensure they got it.

Mia Roberts was superb to head an effort off the line whilst Kim Dutton - celebrating her 20th birthday - was able to make a ridiculous block to hook the ball away an inch from goal.

Goalkeeper Del Morgan takes the honours for Player of the Match though. She made five or six incredible saves and kept the scoreline respectable with those 120 watching treated to some outstanding goalkeeping.

Wrexham are next in action on January 9th 2022 where we travel to Pwllheli in the Adran North.

Wrexham Line-Up: Morgan, Rintoul, Sharp, Jones, Roberts, Dutton, Dickens, Pritchard, Lightfoot, MacKenzie, Hughes.

Subs: Buckley, Scott, Reese.

Referee: Alex Livesey

Player of the Match: Del Morgan
