Speaking to Sgorio after the play-off victory, she said: "It's just unbelievable.

"We put in such a graft today and like, fair play Briton Ferry.

"Absolutely fantastic team. Best team we've played all season.

"We were defending most of the game, but it just shows the way football is.

"You need one chance and you take it and you get the win."

Wrexham grabbed the only goal of the game after 74 minutes.

Rosie Hughes' never-say-die attitude saw her beat two challenges and get to the ball just before it ran out of play.

Her cross saw Rebecca Pritchard run to the near post to flick in a superb goal.

The Reds had to stand strong after this and Delyth made a brilliant last minute save to push a free kick against the crossbar.

"The one at the end, I had no idea that was so close to the end," added Delyth.

"I didn't realise just how important it was.

"I don't know! I have no words.

"It's just amazing. Everything's amazing!"

Delyth praised her teammates when she added: "I think this whole game, especially the last few minutes, sum us up. How we are as a team.

"How hard we work together and when we need to get the result, and it's about another North Walian team finally in the Premier League."

Wrexham manager Steve Dale said: "You've got to give Briton Ferry a lot of credit.

"I think we rode our luck a lot and Del, to be fair, has kept us in the game.

"You saw all them saves there, but the scenes there at the end, it's what it's all about.

"That's why we do it."

Jamie Groves, managing director of DLL, said: “We’re incredibly proud of Del and her whole team’s performance in Wrexham.

"Del is a fantastic member of the team who is inspiring women and girls across the country to get into football.

"We couldn’t be more proud of her involvement with Wrexham AFC this season and offer our huge congratulations on their promotion to the Genero Adran Premier.”
