Swansea City manager Ian Owen responded to his team's Welsh Premier Women's League title success as having come from a season of hard work and dedication.
"Absolutely, we're delighted with the win; we've worked all season for this one," he said following the Swans' 3-1 victory over Caernarfon Town in the league play-off match.
"It was nice winning the FAW Women's Challenge Cup and the South Wales Women's League Cup, but we're still hoping to do well in the South Wales Women's League, but the Welsh Women's Premier League is the competition to win, and fortunately, my team came up with a good performance again, and we've achieved what we set out to do."
When asked to compare the two Premier League titles, he remarked: "I think that this one is even better to be honest, the excitement of winning the first time last year was fantastic, but the expectations that was in us, borne from the experiences had in the Champions League run in Slovenia, really everybody was just desperate to do it again, so I think that this year is even better
"For the whole squad, the last twelve months has been an unforgettable season, but it's not over yet, we still have a number of games to play in the South Wales Women's League but yes, in terms of the Premier League what a great season, unbeaten now for two seasons.
"Within that time we've had new faces within the squad, which means that we're evolving, and I just look forward to the Champions League in the summer, and see if we can do a bit better than we did last year."
"I think that credit has to go to everybody, the players we have are very good, and that's been borne out by the inclusion in the three age categories of the national squads this season. Women's international team manager Jarmo Matikainen was watching the game and he was very complementary about both teams; there are a lot of good players in Wales, and we are fortunate that we've got quite a few of them, and yes the girls deserve everything they get.
"One would always dream of gaining achievements and I'm a very ambitious person, I'm not one to play out the season and then go again for next season."
"Really we want to win things, and thankfully the club has grown over the last ten years, and we're in a position now where we're achieving our ambitions."
