Cardiff Metropolitan have won the Welsh Premier Women’s League title after their goalless draw with rivals Swansea City.
The Archers needed just a point at Llandarcy and achieved that in a cagey affair against their title rivals, who were the only side capable of catching the runaway leaders before the game.
This season, Cardiff Metropolitan have gone 14 games unbeaten, having won 12, drawn twice and not lost a game this season.
It is the sixth Welsh Premier Women’s League title in eight years, as they successfully defended the trophy after last year’s success.
Speaking to Sgorio, manager Kerry Harris said: “We’re over the moon. It was tough today, we wanted the three points we were satisfied with the one point and maintaining that unbeaten record.
“To go away as Champions it feels really special.”
In winning the league title, they have qualified for the UEFA Women’s Champions League. In this season’s Champions League Qualifying group Cardiff Met finished third as they earned just a point against bottom side Birkirkara.
There are still two league games remaining in Met’s season. The Cyncoed-based side still have a FAW Women’s Cup semi-final against Briton Ferry Ladies to play.
They are also in the Welsh Premier Women’s League Cup final, where they will play Swansea City Ladies.
