Cardiff LFC , Cardiff County and Cardiff City Reserves originally LLanedeyrn LFC
From 2024/25 Gwalia United

Cardiff City, Cardiff LFC, Cardiff County.
(And Cardiff City Reserves.)

The club was founded in 1974 as Llanedeyrn L.F.C. after a local charity match. Llanedeyrn L.F.C. joined the Womens Western League in 1974, being promoted to the 1st division after finishing 2nd division runners-up in their second season. In 1979/80 they had a strong side and before playing Exeter were lying behind only Warminster in the league table, in the semi-finals of the League Cup, and the quarter finals of the Pat Sowden Cup. Llanedeyrn players Karen Jones, Sally Manley, Helen Beer and Michelle Adams are all members of the Welsh squad, and were all selected to play for Wales against N. Ireland. Llanedeyrn have also had a lot of success in 5 a side competitions, reaching - the semi-finals of the Great Britain U 21 5-a- side competition as Welsh representatives two years ago.

In 1981 the name was changed to Cardiff L.F.C., and in 1993 the club linked up with Inter Cardiff F.C. and started playing at the Cardiff Athletic Stadium. In 1997, the connection with Inter Cardiff was terminated and the club changed its name to Cardiff County L.F.C while affiliating with the Cardiff County Council. In 2001 the club began affiliating with the professional men’s club from the same city.

At the beginning of the 2003 season, however, the club severed its connection with its male counterpart when its members voted against the men’s club's proposals and its operations became an independent outfit again.
Although they were allowed to keep use of the Cardiff City name and kit colours, their crest is very different, and no longer uses the famous moniker 'Bluebirds' , 

"On St. David’s Day, we celebrate our Welsh heritage, a name change and the dawn of a new era.

A New Chapter Begins: From Cardiff City Ladies to Gwalia United

As the first light of St. David’s Day dawns on the horizon, we stand on the cusp of a momentous new era. On this day, 1st March 2024, we honour our past as we boldly step into the future: Cardiff City Ladies will evolve into Gwalia United for the 2024/25 season. This transition is not just a change of name but a profound declaration of our evolution, embodying the spirit, resilience, and ambition that has always defined us."
