Swansea City kicked off their pre-season campaign with a pair of victories over Newport County in games played behind closed doors at Spytty Park.

Steve Cooper’s squad was split over two hour-long fixtures, with the Swans emerging as 1-0 and 4-0 winners.

Morgan Whittaker scored the winner in the opening contest, turning the ball home from close range, while Adrian Akande and Kyle Joseph went close to adding to the visitors’ tally.

The second game saw George Byers, Liam Cullen and Jamal Lowe (2) find the back of the net, while there was another clean sheet for the Swans.

Jordon Garrick teed up Byers for the opener with a pull-back from the right side of the area, before Cullen lofted the ball over the keeper from Lowe’s cross.

Lowe then rounded off the scoring as Jake Bidwell and Dan Williams set the forward up to coolly fire home the third, before completing his brace from a Cullen pass.
