Swansea's youth operations expand across the Severn Bridge
In what surely is an unprecedented move for the Swans, our academy are holding a series of training days in Bristol (Clifton College Sports Ground to be precise), with the first next Monday the 8th of September at 5:30pm. This is surely a bold move for us, as with no Premier League football in the West Country there's definitely scope to gain ourselves a foothold in terms of building a fanbase there. With the sessions aimed at seven to fourteen-year-olds it's clear we're keen to attract the best young talent from a rapidly expanding geographical area.
The more of this the better in my opinion. We've already seen the club start programmes of sessions in West Wales and the Valleys, and with visibility absolutely massive in swaying the allegiances of young fans the more we can get out into communities and spread "the Swansea way" the better.
