‘Still lots to play for’

21st April 2018

Gary Richards believes Swansea City’s Under-23s still have lots to play for when they face Sunderland in their Premier League 2 finale at Liberty Stadium on Monday (7pm).

Friday's 3-1 victory over West Ham saw Arsenal crowned Division 1 champions. The result means the young Swans can’t finish any lower than fourth in their debut campaign in the top flight of development football.

Victory on Monday could see Swansea snatch third place from Leicester but Sunderland must win to have any chance of surviving relegation.

“It has been a great season and we want to see the team finish on a high,” Richards said.

“We still have a lot to play for with the chance to finish third and our campaign in the Premier League Cup ongoing. So we know we must continue to play at our highest level.

“More young players have taken the step into our squad from the academy. None have looked out of place and I feel that shows the future looks bright for youth football at Swansea.

“The entire squad have worked hard this year, applied themselves well and competed in this league. It would be great to show that once again in front of our fans at the Liberty Stadium.”
