REPORT: Swans U18s 7 QPR U18s 2
22nd November 2014
The Under-18s produced a dominant performance to record a thumping 7-2 victory over Queens Park Rangers at Fairwood.
Rangers took an early lead from the penalty spot but the hosts were 5-2 up at the break thanks to a hat-trick from Owain Jones and strikes from Kyle Copp and Dan James.
Swansea continued their dominance in the second period as Copp completed his treble with another two goals - one of which was a fine free kick.
"We've been creating a lot of chances recently," said coach Cameron Toshack. "We knew if we maintained our focus and continued to create those chances then goals would come and today they have and we have made them count.
"We have worked the ball well into wide areas and provided good crosses for the front men.
"Our execution at set pieces was good, meaning we scored a few goals from free-kicks and corners.
"Our transition into attack through the front men and wingers - Stevie Fallon, Dan James, Kyle Copp and Owain Jones - was breathtaking at times.
"I'm pleased the team are starting to gel together, in recent weeks we have improved our passing patterns, defensive positioning and attacking formations.
"Discipline, organisation and balance has been key for me and the coaches and to be fair to the players have started to make big strides in those areas."
SWANS U18s: Lewis Thomas, Aaron Lewis (Ben Jones), Cai Owens, Cameron Gilchrist, Joe Rodon, Jamie Latham (Adnan Maric), Dylan Thomas, Kyle Copp, Stevie Fallon, Dan James (Brandon Griffiths), Owain Jones.
The Under-18s next face Colchester United away in Development League Two South at Florence Park next Saturday (November 29).
