Orchard WPWL ‘Seren Y Mis’!

Meet our second Orchard WPWL ‘Seren Y Mis’ Chloe Chivers, forward for Swansea City Ladies.

On the pitch, Chloe’s netted 4 goals in 5 appearances, including a cracker in the Leagues first televised match against Cardiff City and won Sgorio’s goal of the month for October. Off the pitch, we’ve loved seeing Chloe’s personality shine through with her BE Cymru Instagram takeover during Swansea’s Champions League adventure to Apollon, and her post match interview with Sgorio at the start of the season. 

O: How does it feel to be nominated as the Welsh Premier Women’s League’s ‘Seren y Mis’/ ’Player of the Month’?

C: It feels great to have been nominated for Player of the Month, especially since this is my first proper season back playing. This wouldn’t have been possible without the team and the hard work we put in week in week out, both on and off the pitch.

O: How did you get in to football?

C:
I started off playing when I was about 6 years old. I was balancing both rugby and football up until I was 15 but ultimately, I chose football. So far, I think I chose the right sport!

O: Who inspired you/keeps inspiring you?

C:
I didn’t really watch a lot of football growing up as my house was a rugby-oriented house. However, when I got into football my younger brother did too, and we used to enjoy watching Liverpool mainly Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres. The Swan's girls and coaches pushed me and helped me a lot coming back from injury but also my family through a tough time.

O: What’s your best memory with Swansea City?

C:
Coming back from injury and winning the League and playing in the Champions League.

O: What does the future hold for you?

C:
To keep playing and enjoying my time with Swansea – and hopefully score more goals and win more trophies!

O: What is your hope for Swansea City?

C:
To win the League, and to compete in the Champions League again next year.

O: What is your hope for the future of the Welsh Premier Women’s League?

C:
That more of our games get covered live by Sgorio and that the League can be made more competitive and have more support and funding.

 

Congratulations Chloe and all the best for a winning season!
