Cardiff City Women - 2

Abergavenny Women - 6

IT wasn’t only Abergavenny RFC doing the town proud in Cardiff on Sunday, as Abergavenny Women turned on the style in their final game of the season with a magnificent performance to blow away former champions Cardiff City.

It was a day to remember for manager Richie Jeremiah, who announced that this would be his last game in charge.

He can thank his sister Kate, who hit a superb hat-trick to seal a great win and steal the golden boot award off her great friend Lyndsey Davies who has won it for the past five seasons.

The game didn’t begin too well, as former team mate Alana Murphy netted for the bluebirds after just three minutes, but goals from Lyndsey Davies and Kate Jeremiah within 10 minutes made for a blistering start in the shadows of the Cardiff City stadium.

With Cardiff knowing that they needed a win to give them a chance of runners-up spot in the league, this was always going to be an end to end affair and so it proved. After the three goal start the remainder of the half was goalless with some great defending from both sides.

Jeremiah gave his final half time team talk and the players came out fighting for him blowing away the opposition, with Lyndsey Davies blasting home from an acute angle before Kate Jeremiah took over with a quick fire brace for her first hat trick of the season. Laura Davies headed home fro close range to complete the scoring with two minutes to go.

There was emotional scenes after the final whistle as Jeremiah thanked his team for the past four seasons and the players responded, showing how much respect they have for the gaffer.

Club secretary Wayne Jeremiah, who is also stepping down after 16 years was full of praise for his team but gave special thanks to his son Richie.

"He’s an amazing coach/manager and has worked tirelessly under difficult conditions and has a very bright future ahead of him. I’d also like to thank my daughter Kate who has been with me on the entire journey and is a special talent who also will go onto bigger and better things within the game.”
