REPORT: Leicester City 0 Swans U18s 3
1st October 2016
Swansea City Under-18s recorded their first victory of the season in Premier League South thanks to a fine 3-0 win at Leicester City.
The Swans youngsters were ahead at the break thanks to Liam Cullen's 35th minute strike, and they remained in control after the interval.
Cullen turned provider to set up Portuguese winger Causso Darame, who doubled the Swans' lead three minutes into the second half.
And the performance - and victory - was rounded off when Cullen bagged another for the visitors.
It proved a hugely satisfying afternoon for the young Swans, for whom Brandon Cooper and U16s talent Mason Jones-Thomas impressed.
U18s coach Chris Llewellyn was delighted with the Swans' display.
"It was a very good display," said Llewellyn. "We maintained possession much better than in previous weeks, while we looked defensively strong in all areas of the pitch."
Swans U18s: Ross Treacy, Rhydian Williams, Mael Davies, Tom Price (Marco Dulca, 85), Dan Jefferies, Brandon Cooper, Causso Darame, Cameron Berry (Jordan Jones, 67), Liam Cullen, Kieran Evans, Mason Jones-Thomas (Sean Hanbury, 80).
Unused subs: Alex Lang, Ben Cabango.
