Swans Return To Action In Port Talbot

Swans Return To Action

Brian Flynn has promised to field a full strength side against their near neighbours and a decent Swans following is expected to see the Swans parade their summer signings. With Lee Trundle playing his first game in a Swansea shirt and the likes of Roberto Martinez and Leon Britton returning, it promises to be an interesting evening.

This is the fixture that was arranged by the club to replace the Bristol City friendly which was cancelled when the Swans drew the Robins in the Carling Cup. Although the standard of the opposition may not be as high, it should still be an interesting evening and the taste of things to come in three weeks when the Swans face Bury.

Admission to the game is priced at £4 for adults and £2 for concessions and a special programme is being produced for the game at the cost of just £1.

I can safely say that in recent years pre-season has not necessarily grabbed me but with the spate of signings this summer, and quality ones at that, I am looking forward to this game and seeing how the side is shaping up ahead of the new season. It will also be my only chance to see the team in action prior to August 9 and, despite it only being Port Talbot, I cannot wait.

Port Talbot are hoping that there will be great interest in this friendly and are confident that after the Swans' escape last season there will be and can anyone remember a game where there was no major pressure when you are watching it?

I personally think that Flynn will give us a decent indication tomorrow night of our starting XI for the new season and, as becomes traditional with these games, we will see several changes in personnel and positioning during the course of the match.

If you are unable to get to Victoria Road tomorrow night then just tune back to later in the evening and we will bring you thoughts, observations and pictures of the Swans in action for the first time since the close season ended.
