Fulton pleased with Swans start

6th March

Jay Fulton is delighted with his start to life at Swansea City after joining the club from Falkirk in January.

The 19-year-old midfielder has featured heavily for the Swans Under-21s since signing a two-and-a-half year deal with the club on deadline day of the January window, playing a key role in the development side's victories over Brentford and Bristol City in recent weeks.

Commenting on his start to life in South West Wales, Fulton feels he has settled well and is looking forward to continuing the early progress he has made.

"I'm settling in really well," said the former Falkirk player. "It's been a few weeks now and I've got my flat sorted and my girlfriend is down as well, so it feels a bit more like home.

"I think I've done reasonably well in my first few games. It has taken a bit of getting used to in training, but I've been happy with how everything is going.

"In recent weeks, we've had a good couple of wins against the likes of Brentford and Bristol City. 

"It's important we keep working hard to build on those victories."

In the last month, Fulton has also travelled with the first-team squad for away visits to Everton and Liverpool in the Barclays Premier League.

And having had a taste for life with Garry Monk's side, the former Falkirk player is relishing the prospect of further opportunities. 

"I didn't expect to go away with the first-team so quickly," admitted Fulton. 

"I've been training with them now and again, in between training with the Under-21s. 

"The demands are high, but it's great to be able to learn from the senior players.

"It's obviously been good, but it's important not to get too ahead of myself. I just have to keep working hard to be involved.

"For the rest of the season, I need to continue what I'm doing and hopefully push for more opportunities."
