Swansea City on the verge of WPWL title

This weekend could potentially see Swansea City crowned Welsh Premier Women’s League champions, with reigning champions Cardiff Met needing the Swans’ form to collapse over the remaining fixtures if they are to retain their title.

Swansea and the Archers are the only two teams left in contention, with third-placed Abergavenny ten points behind the league leaders with three games left to play. The team from the capital find themselves nine points off the top of the table with a maximum of twelve points available to them over the remainder of the season, so keeping hold of the trophy for another season looks extremely unlikely, especially considering Swansea have won their last 12 league games.

The permutations

For Cardiff Met to win the league, they need to pick up at least nine points more than Swansea from their last four games, against Cyncoed, Abergavenny, Port Talbot Town and Cardiff City – all at home. Swansea’s two remaining fixtures are against Rhyl (who they beat 4-0 last weekend) and Cyncoed.

As far as this coming weekend goes:

  • If Swansea beat Rhyl and Cardiff Met don’t beat Cyncoed, Swansea are champions.
  • If Cardiff Met lose to Cyncoed and Swansea don’t lose to Rhyl, Swansea are champions.
  • Any other combination of results sees the title race stay alive for another week.
