LOWRI Walker of Aberystwyth has enjoyed an eventful few days as Wolves Women were promoted to the third tier and played for the first time at Molineux in 19 years.
Wolves earned their place in the third tier following a successful upward movement appeal.
After having two seasons voided due to the pandemic, with Wolves runaway leaders both times, promotion had evaded Dan McNamara’s side, who lodged an appeal to move up a division, based on their results on the pitch.
That appeal was approved last week, meaning Wolves move up to the FA Women’s National League Northern Premier.
It meant the Molineux friendly fixture against Lincoln City in front of around 400 fans on Friday night was a scene of celebration.
A delighted Lowri said: “The last 15 months have been extremely difficult as a Wolves player with us being denied promotion twice in a row. But thankfully our application to join tier 3 has been approved and we are finally going up!
“We have proved that we can compete in that league with our fantastic FA cup run that we had.
“To end it all playing on the Molineux was a dream come true and a memory I will hold onto forever!
“I am so proud to represent Wolves and this is just the beginning.
"To have our friends and families watching on Friday night was the icing on the cake after all the previous restrictions!
“We can’t thank everyone enough for all of the support.
“We said we wanted to end the season on a high and credit to Lincoln City for giving us a good game as always, they were deservedly runners up in the league and will definitely be a team to beat in tier 4 next season. Now we recoup and get ready for next season.”
