Swansea City Under-18s look to bounce back at Fulham
21st August 2015
Coach Chris Llewellyn says Swans Under-18s are looking to bounce back when they take on Fulham at Motspur Park on Saturday (12.30pm).
The young Swans suffered a 6-0 loss at Brighton in the Premier League South Division last weekend leaving the U18s without a point from their first two games.
Fulham, meanwhile, lost their last league game 2-0 away at Leicester.
Eric Ramsay and Chris Llewellyn took charge of the under-18s side last weekend following a coaching reshuffle at the academy.
Llewellyn believes the young side need to aim for a fresh start at Fulham this weekend.
"The season for us started on Monday," he said. "The lads have reacted well in training and they are looking forward to the game this weekend which we will go into with a clean slate.
"We need to learn from last week's result and work on the areas that went wrong.
"Every game is going to be a tough test this season. It is a big step up from category two to one and we were shown that last Saturday.
"Myself and Eric (Ramsay) have been working hard to build the lads back-up and boost morale to get them into the right frame of mind.
"Fulham are a decent side - they play with a similar style - but if we keep to our principles we will have a better performance."
Swans U18 squad: Lewis Thomas, Ross Treacey, Ben Jones, Aaron Lewis, Ben Morgan, Daniel Jefferies, Causso Darame, Mael Davies, Thomas Dyson, Jordan Jones, Liam Edwards, Jack Evans, Keiran Evans, Brandon Griffiths, Sean Hanbury.
