Darame expects big test this season

3rd August 2017

Winger Causso Darame is relishing the opportunity of playing at a higher level with Swansea City Under-23s this season.

The 18-year-old is one of five players to graduate from the academy into the development squad ahead of the campaign.

And Darame, who netted six times in 24 appearances for the U18s last season, admits there is room for improvement.

“In truth, I wasn’t pleased with my individual performances last season,” said Darame. “I definitely could have done better.

“This season will be a bigger test, so I know I will have to keep improving in order to get game time.

“I am excited for what the campaign holds. I can’t wait to play and continue my development.

“Training with the U23s is much harder - everything is a faster pace and higher tempo, but it helps you raise your game.

“My aim in the first few months will be to get as many minutes as possible. There is plenty of competition in the squad so it will be a good challenge.

“I want to follow in the footsteps of players like Joe Rodon, Aaron Lewis and Daniel James and get a regular place in the team and do my best on the pitch.

“I know there is more to come from me and my aim will be to push on and get better this season.”
