"It’s pleasing to see how well the girls are developing. This is our third game and all the girls are looking more comfortable on the ball.
"We now look forward to fixtures in the new year against MK Dons, Swansea City and Blackpool to name just a few who we will be testing the girls against.
"The work that all the community have been doing for women’s football recently is tremendous, from our FFD programme to our Futsal and Education programme." Girls and women’s development officer Peter Wilson said:
The under-16s were comfortable 6-0 winners. Five different goal scorers saw a convincing win, Charlotte Budd scored a brace for Shrewsbury while the Shrews defence held firm and only saw the South Wales outfit have two shots all game.
The under-14s won 4-3, Alicia Llewlyn-Bell scoring the winner after picking up the ball inside her own half and firing into the net from twenty yards.
Meanwhile, the under-13s drew 4-4. The Shropshire side saw themselves 2-0 up after the first period before being pegged back, Danni Staley scoring a brace for the Shrews.
The under-11s were narrowly beaten 6-5 in a very closely-contested encounter. The under-11s saw five different goal scorers: Rose McGuinness, Zoe Gregory, Emily Jennings, Ruby Moran and Amy Griffiths all found the back of the net for the Shrews.
The Shrews faced the South Walians in the under-11s,13s,14s and 16s age groups.
Shrewsbury Town in the Community's Girls Advanced Development Centre took on the South Wales Girls League at Shrewsbury College in their first home fixture since reforming.
