Joe Rodon will always look back with pride on the 2018-19 season after achieving his dream of playing for Swansea City.
The 21-year-old academy product, a former Swans season-ticket holder, made his bow for his hometown club against Preston back in August and quickly made his mark.
He showed admirable composure and maturity for one so young, as well as having the talent on the ball to comfortably fit into Graham Potter’s possession-based set-up.
A broken metatarsal, suffered against Sheffield United in January, was a cruel blow and ensured he spent two-and-a-half months on the sidelines.
But overall, the Llangyfelach product was delighted to have made his breakthrough with his boyhood club.
“I will look back at this season with a lot of pride,” he said.
“From day one coming into the academy the dream was always to pull on that white shirt and play for Swansea City.
“This season, I finally got to do it.
“Obviously with the injury later in the season it was not good timing, but overall it has been a hugely positive season and we want to push on from here.”
