Gone are the u23s, the powers that be have decided that it's to be u21s again at the end point of football academies.

New signing Ben Blythe is entering his u21s season, so will be an overaged player for our reserves next season. With a two year contract we'll be hoping he's ready to make the step up sooner rather than later. Wasiri Williams is in his u23s season, so is already overaged. Things for the club to think about.

Quiet break.

Wales - N/A

Wales u19 - Ben Hughes, Harry Jones, Josh Edwards
Wales u18 - Joel Cotterill, Ben Lloyd, Cameron Congreve, Kai Ludvigsen, Tyler Evans
Wales u17 - Dan Watts, Seb Dabrowski
Academy signings
at 12:01 21 May 2021

Goalkeeper Ben Hughes (2003) from Chippenham Town has reportedly agreed a scholarship for next season after a successful trial. Was in the Wales u18s squad that faced England recently. Also been involved with Wales u19s futsal apparently.

I don't think the current group of u18s goalkeepers will be kept on (Evans, Hutchings, Rutter) so it's an area we probably needed reinforcement.
Profitable football club
at 15:14 26 Apr 2021

Accounts confirmed.

"Swansea City has reported a pre-tax profit of £2.7m for the financial year ending July 31, 2020"

"The club employed an average of 321 members of staff - including playing staff, backroom staff and part-time matchday staff - during the year at a cost of £40.2m. This compared to 359 staff members at a cost of £48.9m the previous year — a reduction in staff costs of £8.7m."

"The accounts include the sale of Oli McBurnie to Sheffield United, but not Joe Rodon to Tottenham Hotspur."

Bersant's brother playing RB for the u23s on trial. Doing alright, neat and tidy player. Not seen any stepovers yet though. Put in a few good tackles as well.
U23s vs Aston Villa (7pm)
at 14:50 19 Aug 2019

The young Swans started this campaign with a 1-0 victory over Norwich, but the club didn't provide a stream so who knows if it really happened. Brandon Cooper scored a right-footed thunderbolt coming forward from left-back to briefly put us top of the Division 2 table.

Tom Carroll will play tonight as he continues towards full fitness.

Kickoff 7pm. Stream here:

Monk Out

Another club going the youth route due to financial issues (in their case it's FFP sanctions more than actual lack of cash afaik).
No Checkatrade for the u21s
at 13:54 14 Jun 2019

We've not been invited. Shame, has been a great experience for the development lads, and we've done better than many academy sides getting past the group stages each year iirc.

Back in action this weekend. Been training with Trinidad and Tobago. Looks fit and strong.
Wales vs Croatia, Hungary
at 09:36 29 May 2019

Dan James, Connor Roberts and Joe Rodon in the squad. No Declan John.

Ben Davies having a hernia op right after the CL final so will miss out. No Dummett either. Neil Taylor and Ben Williams as the left-back options.

Cian Harries was at the hush hush training camp the week before the Portugal one.
Profiling Championship Fullbacks
at 11:59 22 May 2019

Following on from their excellent article on ball-playing centre halves, two good Twitter follows present one on Championship full-backs, looking at how they compare in terms of passing style, accuracy, and defensive contribution.

Unsurprisingly, Connor Roberts gets picked out as a standout, as van der Hoorn and Rodon were in the last article.

The cb one if you missed it:

Wales Training Camp
at 10:06 21 May 2019

Dan James, Connor Roberts and Joe Rodon included in a mixed group of young and older players ahead of next month's internationals. Real squad is announced at the end of this month.

Dylan Levitt is a quality player. Never been convinced by Broadhead.
(Some) Young Swans offered new deals
at 14:58 10 May 2019

New contracts for Matt Blake (2 years), Josh Gould and Tom Price (1 year).

One year extension clauses activated for Liam Cullen and Kieran Evans.

First pro deals offered to Mason Jones-Thomas, Cameron Evans, Daniel Williams and Marc Walsh.

Ryan Blair, Keston Davies, Tyler Reid, Adam King, Adnan Maric and Jack Withers released as I expected. But Aaron Lewis I did not.

Plus Nathan Shepperd signing for Brentford after his scholarship ended.
U23s vs Man City (7pm)
at 18:09 29 Apr 2019

Final game of the PL2 season. Swans already relegated. But places in the team for the cup semi final up for grabs.

Swans Keeper makes Team of the Season
at 16:57 24 Apr 2019

Not the official one. And not Kris, obviously. But in the opinion of some professionals in the stats and analysis game Mulder, van der Hoorn and James (narrowly beating out Buendia) have been among the most effective individual players in the division this season (based on their "unique player performance algorithm").

Celina and Rodon also make the u23 side.

Taking up that voluntary redundancy package?
