SWANSEA City boss Chris Church feels his side don’t get the respect they deserve from some of their Genero Adran Premier rivals.

The Swans have dominated the women’s domestic game in Wales since finishing the 2018-19 campaign as runners-up to league winners Cardiff Met.

Back-to-back championships followed with just one goal conceded in each season, and they have not lost a league fixture in more than three years.

They currently sit top of the table on goal difference and go to Barry Town United on Sunday with a game in hand on second-placed Cardiff City.

Speaking after the 3-0 win over Cardiff Met last month, team manager Ian Owen said: “People now need to give the respect [the team deserves].

“We’ve gone three years unbeaten, and that includes Cardiff Met, who are a fantastic team, so I hope everybody realises what a good side they [Swansea] are.”

When asked if he felt his side got the respect they deserve, Church replied: “Most people are envious of what we are achieving and that’s where the respect doesn’t really come from.

“Whether you like us or not is a matter of opinion, but we’ve had one or two teams show us respect.

“We played TNS recently and Andy Williams [TNS manager] was very complimentary about us.

“We feel we deserve and have earned respect because we’ve got to where we are the hard way.

“One or two teams don’t give us that respect.

“We would respect any team that has gone unbeaten over such a long time and won everything.

“It could be a bit of jealousy, who knows.”
