Under-21s round off Dutch tour in style
24th July 2015
The Under-21s rounded off their Dutch tour in style with a comfortable 9-1 win over FC Laakkwartier.
After Kyle Copp went close with an early free kick, the Swans went ahead after 10 minutes through an own goal.
The visitors dominated the early period and doubled their lead midway through the first half when Alex Samuel finished off a chance at the second attempt after latching onto a long ball upfield.
The hosts did find the back of the net in the first half but it came sandwiched in between a goal for a trialist and Kyle Copp grabbed the Swans' fourth just two minutes before the interval.
