Swansea City defeated Caernarfon Town 3-0 in the FA of Wales Cup Final at Park Avenue to claim the trophy for the first time.
The Swans took the lead with eighteen minutes played, captain Natalie Ashford rising above everyone to score with a fine header from a Sarah Adams corner, which left Elena Julio with no chance in the Cofis' goal.
Just after the half hour, the lively Ailsa Orlik produced Caernarfon's first attempt on goal as she controlled well from Alison Mummery's free kick, but her shot was hit straight at Swansea keeper Gemma Border.
The Swans responded well and, after a few blocked shots, Ella Walsh's drive from the edge of the area was well saved by a sprawling Julio to her left. Ashford rose well again from the resulting corner but this time her header was over the bar.
Swansea then doubled their advantage when Welsh international striker Laura May Walkley scored five minutes before the break.
The assignment then became even more difficult for Caernarfon with Orlik left the field through injury and the Swans made it 3-0 shortly afterwards as Walkley skipped past two defenders before pulling the ball back for Walsh to apply a classy finish.
The Player of the Match award went to Swansea's teenage defender Tija Richardson who marshalled the defence well all afternoon.
