Academy players Corey Hurford and Josh Thomas joined Swansea City AFC Foundation for their Welsh language soccer camp in Gowerton.

In partnership with Menter Iaith Abertawe, the foundation hosted a soccer camp that encouraged the use of the Welsh language throughout the session for both participants and coaches.

Hurford and Thomas, who are Welsh speakers, joined the foundation to help celebrate the event, answering questions from participants before handing out certificates and prizes.

"It was so good to go out and be part of the soccer camps and see so many young people playing football," said Thomas.

"It was a good opportunity to give something back to our young supporters. It was also encouraging to see so many people speaking the Welsh language.

"Hopefully we can do our bit to help more people speak the language and help the use of Welsh to grow."

The foundation are running Soccer Camps throughout the summer holidays, with limited spaces still available HERE.
