Garrick excited by chance of silverware

23rd March 2019

Jordan Garrick and his Swansea City Under-23 team-mates are desperate to take the chance to end a tough season with some silverware.

The forward made a goal-scoring return from injury against Aston Villa in the Premier League Cup last week, netting a fine solo effort as the development side sealed a 2-0 win.

That sent the Swans into the quarter-finals of the competition for the third season in a row, and they will face Nottingham Forest in Alfreton on Friday, March 29 (3pm) in the last eight.

Cameron Toshack and Gary Richards have seen their side have a tough time in Premier League 2, with the promotion of a number of their players to the first-team squad requiring a number of younger players to step up from the under-18s.

But, having won the Premier League Cup in 2017 and reached the final in 2018, they still have the chance to end the campaign with a trophy.

And it is an opportunity Garrick wants to take full advantage of.

“It’s not been an easy season, we have done really well in this tournament. We have won it before and got to another final,” he said.

“The league has been tough but the chance of success is there and you have to take it and every game is big for us.

“We can’t just be positive or negative, there is a balance, and the cup is a big positive for us in this season.”
