INTERVIEW | Del Morgan ahead of TNS (H)

Wrexham AFC Women's keeper Del Morgan speaks ahead of derby match against TNS

27 October 2023

Wrexham AFC Women return to home comforts this weekend, as they face The New Saints at The Rock on Sunday, October 29 (2pm kick-off).

Following an impressive comeback win against Aberystwyth Town last weekend, Steve Dale’s side currently find themselves sat second in the Genero Adran Premier table.

Ahead of Sunday’s match, we caught up with goalkeeper Del Morgan – who also featured on Welcome to Wrexham S2:E11 - Yn Codi, featuring the team’s play-off final victory.

Speaking about last Sunday’s victory on the road, Morgan said: “It was a really important win. They will probably compete closely with us this season, so to get the win away from was vital.

“It was a really good comeback win after our last loss against Cardiff City, and we showed our character to come back and get the result.

"I think that we’ve started really, really well. We’ve shown everyone what we’re about. We’re not just here to take part, we’re here to challenge and finish as high up the league as possible this season."

Having played against TNS last season in Wrexham’s cup victory against Sunday’s opponents, our number one explained just how tough a match it will be for the Red Dragons.

“Sunday’s match is our derby in the league,” she said. “It’s going to be a competitive match, they’re a good team, and have added to their squad too.

“We might’ve beaten them in the cup last season, but they’ve improved, and we’ve got to put it all together like we did against Aberystwyth and Swansea – it is going to be another tough game for us.

“I think that most games in this league are going to be tight and competitive. Any derby always brings more emotion to the fixture, but we are going to turn up on Sunday, put a performance on for ourselves and the fans and hopefully we can get a positive result.”

Finally, Morgan explained the importance of the loud and vocal backing which the side have received at home so far this season.

“The fans are so important to us. We really feel it when they are here, and we love their support – it helps to give us an extra lift. They really are like having a 12th player on the pitch, and hopefully we have similar support on Sunday.

“It’s really important. We see how much we mean to them. The support we’ve had home and away, even in our games down in South Wales, has been incredible. We always go out wanting to make everyone associated with the Club and all of our supporters proud.

Tickets are still available for Sunday’s match, and can be purchased via our eTicketing website or in person at our Ticket Office.
