Cameron Congreve | We’re all Growing Together as a Team

9th November

Playmaker Cameron Congreve is delighted with the growth shown by Swansea City Under-21s in recent weeks, particularly the ruthless edge they are showing in front of goal.

Joel Cotterill opened the scoring from the spot, before second-half goals from Lincoln McFayden, Josh Thomas and substitute Tarrelle Whitaker rounded off an emphatic 4-0 win over Queens Park Rangers at the Stadium on Tuesday.

Congreve produced an inspired performance in midfield, dictating the play and showing a real maturity with and without the ball as part of a fine all-round team display.

The result was the young Swans sixth win out of six at home this season, and their fifth win on the bounce, moving Anthony Wright and Jon Grey’s side up to third place in the Professional Development League table.

And Congreve is really pleased with how the squad are progressing.

“It was really good out there. I thought we started slow, but I thought we built up into the game, especially after we got away with one in the first half and kicked on in the second," said Congreve.

“It was hard to get the breakthrough, but we kept on going and the intensity grew. I thought we played well and dominated the game. 

“I think in the last few games we’ve been really ruthless in front of goal. To be fair I think we could have kicked on and got a few more in the end against QPR. But we’re all growing together as a team, and I think now you can see that on the pitch. 

“Creating chances is probably my favourite part of the game, other than scoring goals. I always look to create as many chances as I can. Hopefully, if I keep performing when I can get the chance to play [in the first team squad] and I can get back in as soon as I can".
