Swans reach FAW Youth Cup Semi's
Swansea City Under-19s are through to the semi-final of the FAW Youth Cup after a dominating 11-1 win over Welsh Premier League side Llandudno at Landore on Sunday.
Coaches Eric Ramsay and Chris Llewellyn included five first year pro’s in their strong starting XI, including strikers Owain Jones and Kyle Copp.
The young Swans offered no love to the north Welsh side on Valentine’s day as they controlled the first half to take a dominating 8-0 lead into the break – Owain Jones (5), Kyle Copp (2) and Jordan Garrick (1) all found the net.
Jones bagged two more goals in the second half before Llandudno pulled a goal back.
Midfielder Tom Holland rounded off a fine display with a close range strike minutes before the full time whistle.
The defending champions now progress to the semi-final of the competition. Owain Jones, who netted seven was pleased with the team performance.
“Games like this can be difficult if you don’t score early,” he said. “We could not have done much more than we did today.
“We took an early lead and put in a professional performance to go through to the semi-finals.
“This competition offers us different challenges and is good experience for every player.
“We want to make sure we reach the final to have the chance of defending the trophy we won last season.”
