Oliver McBurnie Swansea City Under-21s Brighton

18th August 2015

Oliver McBurnie made a dream start to life at Swansea City after the debutant struck the winner against Brighton in their Premier League Division Two Under-21 clash on Monday night.
The 19-year-old netted ten minutes into his first appearance for the U21s at the AMEX Stadium as the Swans recorded their first win in category one football.
The striker, who joined the Swans from Bradford in July, admitted it could not have been a better start.
"One game, one goal, one win is as good as it gets," said McBurnie. "It was a goal straight off the training ground - Raheem (Hanley) crossed a nice ball into the area and I have managed to get on the end of it.
"It was not the prettiest of wins but the boys have dug in, kept the ball well, played some nice stuff and I think we deserved the victory."

McBurnie, who missed last week's opening defeat to West Brom believes the young Swans have shown some encouraging signs already this season.
He added: "I watched the game last week against West Brom and I thought we controlled most of the game and were unlucky not to get a result.
"Against Brighton, we competed again and we don't look out of our depth at this level. 
"We have put on a good performance, played some good football and we need to make sure that continues.
"My time with the team so far has been really good - the boys are a great bunch of lads and I have felt at home straight away.
"The atmosphere in the camp will be even better now we have got our first win."
