Swansea City's Alfie Mawson plans to stay in the Premier League
4th November 2016
Alfie Mawson is finding his feet in the Premier League after climbing five rungs of the football ladder to reach the top flight.
And having broken into the elite following his move to Swansea City, the centre-back intends to stick around.
Mawson's rise into Bob Bradley's first team means he has played in English football's top six divisions.
And while he is refusing to take anything for granted, the 22-year-old is now eyeing a long spell in a Swans shirt.
"Nothing is certain in football - and that's still the case for me now," Mawson tells this weekend's Jack Magazine.
"I was delighted to make my first appearance in the Premier League. It means I have played in every league from Conference South upwards - it's a good story to tell.
"I will remember the day I made my debut against Watford for the rest of my career.
"Now it's about making sure I can kick on. My ambition now is to play at this level for the rest of my career, and I would love that to be here at Swansea."
* You can read Alfie's unusual story in Sunday's Jack Magazine.
He talks about everything from the Conference South to signing for the Swans - and reveals the job he almost left football for a mere three years ago.
As usual, Jack Magazine will be packed with entertaining and insightful content, with player interviews, historical features and glimpses of what goes on behind the scenes at Swansea City.
In the latest issue, we speak to Des Lyttle, Dai Davies and Gordon McQueen.
There is the story of Pierre Barrieu, the new fitness coach at the Swans.
There is all the news from the club, plus we hear from Bob Bradley, skipper Leon Britton and chairman Huw Jenkins.
And there is plenty more in this week's Jack Magazine, including news from the development squad, the academy and the ladies' team, as well as all you need to know about Jose Mourinho's Manchester United.
Issue six of the Premier League campaign is available for just £3 from around the Liberty, the club shop and online.
Jack Magazine really is a must-have for any Swans fan, so don't miss out.
