Thomas Woodward is confident he can continue his prolific form in front of goal for Swansea City Under-18s after his brace secured the three points against AFC Bournemouth.

Jonny Day had opened the scoring for the Cherries after 33 minutes, before Woodward quickly brought the visitors back on level terms three minutes later at Canford Park Arena.

And Woodward - who sealed his second brace in as many games - went on to claim the three points for the Swans with a fine finish in the 54th minute.

The 17-year-old now has 15 goals in the league this season, and 23 in all competitions across the academy age groups he has represented, but he is not done yet.

"I thought the boys really dug in, and we got the win we deserved. We could have scored a few more goals, as well," said Woodward.

"I always want to continue scoring and I'm confident I can because the boys always give me great service, we work so well together.

"As soon as I got two, I definitely wanted to get a hat-trick. But we all play together as a team, and they all play a part in my goals, especially Aimar [Govea] and Cameron Llewellyn.

"Often, I can arrive late into the box and they will pick me out and they have done that again in this game.

"The boys have been working hard over the last couple of weeks, Bournemouth threw everything at us in final 10 minutes but, again, they all dug in and made sure we took the three points, which is the most important thing."
