The Bluebirds have also made an impressive start to their WPWL League Cup campaign by defeating Llandudno 7-0 at Maesdu Park in the Group 1 opener – which sent them straight to the top of the standings – on Sunday, September 15th.

Pre-match quotes

Iain Darbyshire

“We’re really looking forward to being back in action on Sunday and raring to get back out there and hopefully extend our three-game winning streak to four. 

“It’ll be my first-time facing Aberystwyth, so it’s exciting for me personally and it will be for a few of the players too, but they’re all itching to get out on the pitch and perform.”

Hannah Daley

“We’ve had a terrific start to the season and we can’t wait to get back out on the pitch to hopefully continue our winning ways – following on from the 10-0 win over Llandudno, Sunday before last. 

“The whole squad have been training hard and we won’t be taking Aberystwyth lightly because they’ll be up for it and we need to play our best to win.”
