Swansea City Under-19s Metroplitan Premier Cup Jack Watts
25th March 2016
Two goals in two minutes from Jack Watts helped Swansea City Under-19s win their group G match over Pretorian side Glenwegians in the Metropolitan Premier Cup on Friday.
The midfielder was on hand to fire home a punched clearance from Glenwegians keeper within the first minute to give the Swans the lead.
The Under-19s doubled their advantage just a minute later when striker Jordan Garrick raced clear down the right flank to pull the ball back for Watts to fire into the top corner from inside the area.
Swansea controlled the rest of the game with the South African opponents having few chances in front of goal.
Substitute Matt Roberts saw his shot saved late on before winger Brandon Griffiths had his header cleared off the line.
The Swans now sit second in Group G with five points - level on points with PPG Langa who are top*
