Swansea City U18s Eric Ramsay Norwich
12th September 2015
Eric Ramsay hailed Swansea City Under-18s' battling performance after a 1-1 draw away at Norwich on Saturday.
A second-half equaliser from full-back Mael Davies saw the young Swans earn their first point of the season in the Barclays Premier League South Division.
The scholars could have grabbed a winner late on when substitute Causso Darame beat the defence only to see his shot well saved by the Norwich keeper.
Ramsay was pleased with the performance and hopes the result can provide a platform to build on this season.
"The lads did everything that was asked of them today," he said. "Their quality in possession was excellent.
"We were extremely competitive and battled for the entire 90 minutes. We have built on the positives from our first-half performance last week and delivered it in today's game.
"Norwich are a strong category one academy and the result today proves that we can deliver and get results at this level.
"Mael's goal came at a good time. To hit back immediately was perfect - in previous weeks we have conceded a second goal and the game has gone out of sight.
"Due to injuries our squad is down to the absolute bare bones with a number of under-16s being called on to play up.
"To come here and produce a battling performance which has earned a draw is even more pleasing.
"We now need to build on this performance and add more consistency and quality to our game in the coming months."
