CITY MEMORIES | HANNAH POWER
The Bluebirds’ last trip to Llandarcy Academy of Sport resulted in a hugely dramatic finish.
With City trailing 2-1 heading into the 97th minute, centre-back Hannah Power found Phoebie Poole with a brilliant pass, with the latter finishing clinically into the bottom corner.
The goal meant that City remained unbeaten and secured a crucial result on the way to the Adran Premier title.
Recalling the dramatic end to the game, Hannah said: “I remember having the ball at my feet and thinking we literally have seconds left of this game, so I need to play this ball forward.
“That’s when I spotted Phoebie’s run so I dinked it in her direction and as soon as it went into the back of the net, it was the best feeling.
“Everyone went wild and dived on each other because we all knew how important that goal was for our title-winning season.
“It felt even more special because it was in the South Wales derby and helped us to secure an invincible season.”
