CITY MEMORIES | LISA OWEN
On the way to winning the Bute Energy Welsh Cup last season, the Bluebirds defeated Abergavenny Women at Cardiff International Sports Campus.
City’s first goal was memorably scored by right-back Lisa Owenwho was celebrating her return to the squad after giving birth.
Recalling a special goal, the Bluebirds defender said: “It meant a lot to me. I’m not one to score goals, but to score on my first game back was just that extra bit special. It was like it was meant to be.
“I’ve been at Cardiff City for nearly ten years now and I have to say this is the closest we’ve all been as a squad. We all have each other’s back and want nothing but the best for each other on and off the field.”
Turning her attention to this weekend, Lisa added: “I feel pretty happy with how I’ve been performing. A lot of it is to do with the confidence I believe the girls and the coaches have in me. There’s a lot of competition and talent in the squad this year, the most talented squad I’ve ever played with and it’s not going to be easy for anyone to get in the starting 11.
“As a squad, I believe we can definitely win the competition again. All we want to do is win and we are taking it game by game and just ticking them off one by one.”
