In 2014 Llanidloes Ladies was renamed to Hafren United Ladies FC to appeal a wider audience.

Formation

The club was formed in 2000 and were one of the founding members of the North Powys League. In the earlier stages of the teams formation the club did not enjoy much success.

Early Success

In the 2007/08 season the club won their first silverware under Manager Richard Williams winning the Central Wales Cup. In the 2007/08 season the club formed a reserves team who went on to win the North Powys Ladies League Division 2 in their first season. In 2008/09 the Club really showed how far they had come winning the treble, The County Times Cup, The North Powys Ladies league and successfully defending the Central Wales Cup, with the reserve team also finishing runners up in Division 2.

New Challenge of the National Premier League

With the club currently dominating Mid Wales Football they were chosen, as one of 8 clubs throughout Wales, to form a National League. The League was initially divided into two divisions, North and South, with Llanidloes playing in the North. However, as the league was initially small they could continue to play in the North Powys League whilst still fulfilling their Premier fixtures. The Club made Welsh Ladies Football history playing in the first ever Welsh National League fixture against Aberystwyth in September 2009.

For the 2009/10 season the North Powys league Division 1 and 2 merged to form a larger more competitive League. This meant that the Reserves Team had to form a completely independent squad, so Llanidloes Reserves became Llanidloes Daffs for the new season. In the season 2009/2010 the club repeated it treble winning performances from the previous season again lifting the County Times Cup, The North Powys Ladies league and the Central Wales Cup. Llanidloes in 2010 had lifted the Central Wales Cup in three consecutive seasons.

Llanidloes Ladies also had another milestone in 2009 when Nikki Bocking was called into the Wales Under 17s squad travelling to Belgium in September and Macedonia in October 2009.

The new single format Premier League

In its first three years the Welsh Women`s Premier League was divided into two conferences, north and south, with Llanidloes competing in the North. The league changed the format to a single division for the 2012–13 season. When the league became a single division it meant Llanidloes could no longer play in the North Powys League. The renamed to Hafren United before the 2014/15 season but withdraw before playing the first match.
