Gower College Swansea’s Premier Football squad have retained the Welsh Colleges Cup, beating Cardiff and Vale College 3-1 in the final.

Over the past four seasons, the team’s success has seen it pick up the Welsh Colleges Cup and the Welsh Schools Cup, as well as being named British Cup and Welsh Cup finalists.

“This is a brilliant achievement for all players involved and for the teaching staff who have worked so hard to coach and mentor the team throughout the season,” says lecturer Marc O’Kelly. “The boys worked really well together as a team to beat some excellent competitors along the way, including Coleg Y Cymoedd in the semis and, of course, Cardiff and Vale in the final.”

A special mention must go to striker Gavin Jones, who scored a hat trick in the final and was awarded ‘man of the match,’ and Captain Iwan McNab, who lifted the trophy before heading to the USA, where he has been offered a full soccer scholarship at the University of Ohio.
