Swansea City Women are supporting Show Racism the Red Card Cymru’s Month of Action at today’s game against Cardiff Met Women to raise awareness and challenge racism in football and society.

We are calling on all members of the Welsh football family to show their support for Show Racism the Red Card both during October’s Month of Action and throughout the season.

Swansea City Women travel to the Cyncoed Campus to face Cardiff Met Women this evening (5.10pm) looking to build on last weekend’s victory over Barry Town United Women.

The Swans climbed to the top of the Genero Adran Premier following their first home game of the season beating Barry Town United Women 3-0 at Llandarcy.

Met go into the game following an action-packed 4-4 draw with The New Saints at home, having led 3-1 at half-time.

Both sides will be hoping for a win as they play live on Sgorio.Chloe Chivers vs BarryHead coach Ceri Phillips: “Hopefully we can gather a bit of momentum after our first win of the season on Sunday.

“We asked the players for a reaction last week and we got it. We just want to build on that now.

“Sunday certainly won’t be easy, but we’ve had a good week and we’re feeling good ahead of this weekend.

“We want to make sure that we keep building and take things one game at a time. Of course, there are plenty of positives from last week and a few things to improve on.

“Any Cardiff Met side will be tough to play, the game being on Sgorio will give everyone added motivation so they will be right up for it.

“From what we can gather, they will feel quite aggrieved that they didn’t get their first win on Sunday so I think they will take confidence from that.”

The two sides last met in the Swans final home game of the 2022-23 season, with the Swans earning a 3-0 victory.

Chloe Chivers put the Swans ahead in the first half with a stunning 30-yard strike which beat the Met goalkeeper.

Nia Rees added a much deserved second for the Swans with five minutes of the match remaining, before earning a penalty in the final moments which Meg Saunders converted.
