Gorre: Hard work paid off in title win
14th May 2015
Kenji Gorre insists the hard work paid off for the Under-21s as they were crowned champions following victory over Huddersfield.
Gorre scored twice in the 3-2 win at the Liberty Stadium as the development squad ended their season on a high.
Despite going behind to Flo Bojaj's header, Alex Samuel equalised for the Swans as the two teams went into the break all-square.
But Gorre turned the game in the home side's favour in the second period as he grabbed two goals to take his tally to 18 for the season and finish as top scorer.
"I am over the moon with the result and title win," he said. "It's what we have been working towards this season.
"We have achieved what we set out to do from the start and I'm pleased for all the boys who have been involved this year.
"To lift the trophy and win the title was the best feeling ever, everything has just come together for us and all the hard work throughout the season has paid off.
"It was an amazing experience to score at Liberty Stadium in front of the home fans. I just want to focus on playing well, and if the goals come then that is a bonus."
Senior players including Angel Rangel, Jonjo Shelvey and Jack Cork, together with first-team boss Garry Monk were in the stands at the Liberty to watch the Under-21s lift the trophy.
"Hopefully a chance in the first team is not too far away from me," said Gorre. "I just need to keep doing what I am doing, stay focused on my game and showing people that I am ready for the chance.
"It is not for me to decide when that chance might be, but I hope I am showing people what I can do."
