After joining in the celebrations of promotion to the Championship, recent loan signing Ashley Williams says he wished he signed for us a bit earlier.
The Stockport County centre back and captain described the week he signed as the best of his career, making his debut for Wales less than 24 hours before joining us.
With the on-going saga with Leeds and their 15 points, the title isn't confirmed as ours but Williams says we are Champions in everyone's eyes.
He told the Western Mail:
|'Anyone around the country who follows football see Swansea as champions,'|
'I'm not too sure what's happening with the trophy and none of us really know what will happen with the Leeds situation. It's certainly strange but there's nothing we can do about it.
'But people can see for themselves who the champions are - and I'm not just talking about Swansea fans. Everyone outside Swansea recognises us as the champions.'
'The boys have been brilliant all year and they've not been top of the table by fluke.
'And since I've joined the feeling from other sides has been the same. We're recognised as the champions.'
'Looking at it now, I just wished I signed a bit earlier,' laughed Williams.
'A medal would have been nice but it's not about that.
'Although the club were close to promotion when I signed, I played in an important top-of-the-table game against Carlisle and then played against Gillingham to win promotion.
'The way we had to hang on to win there I think we would have all celebrated anyway so I did enjoy it. And that's what it's about, not medals and trophies.
'I've got the memories and experience of that day - and the Yeovil game - and they stay with you forever.'
