Liam Cullen Swansea City under-23s
6th February 2017
Liam Cullen is looking forward to more opportunities with Swansea City Under-23s this season.
The 17-year-old striker has netted 16 goals in all competitions for the club's under-18s team so far this season.
His impressive tally with the academy led to the Tenby-born forward being handed game-time with the U23s in the Premier League Cup against Southampton and Newcastle.
After being on the bench during last week's fixture against Fulham, the teenager admits he has ambitions to feature in Premier League 2 this season.
"Getting game-time in the Premier League Cup was a great opportunity for me to play up a level," he said. "I know I will have to be patient, but I am looking forward to my next opportunity with the U23s.
"I have loved scoring goals with the U18s this season. I want to score as much as I can. My aim now is to prove I am good enough to step up, compete at this level and cement my place in the team.
"Watching what the development side has done this season in all competitions only motivates me to play well and be part of it.
"Aaron (Lewis) took the step up this time last season and is now a regular member of the team, which proves what can be achieved.
"It is a big step - the style of play is much faster, but I am looking forward to the challenge should I get the opportunity."
