Under-15s lose to Reading in Floodlit Cup
Swansea City's Under-15s narrowly lost out to Reading's academy youngsters in the Premier League Floodlit Cup, falling to a 1-0 defeat at Landore on Wednesday.
The result means the young Swans are second in Group C with three wins from five games.
The young Swans next face Bristol City in ther deciding group game at Landore later this month. The under-15s beat the young Robins 3-1 earlier in the campaign.
Victory over Bristol City would see Swansea progress to the knock-out stage of the competition with the top two teams in each group qualifying.
Because Academy games are usually played during daylight hours, the Premier League hope that staging some fixtures under lights for The Floodlit Cup will be an invaluable and beneficial experience for the young players.
