O'Leary & Trundle Look Forward To Swansea Game

O'Leary & Trundle Look Forward To Swansea Game

Neath duo Kristian O'Leary and Lee Trundle say they are looking forward to Thursday's match against their former club Swansea City.

Lee Trundle spent most of last season on loan at the Liberty Stadium but former boss Paulo Sousa, now at Leicester City, decided not to offer the striker a permanent contract. Despite offers from League 1 and League 2 sides, the 33 year-old made a surprise move to Neath this week.

Trundle links up with former Swans team-mate Kristian O'Leary at Neath. O'Leary spent nearly 15 years with the Jacks before leaving in February. He had a short spell at Wrexham before joining the Eagles.

Trundle paid tribute to Swansea fans, and says despite his disappointment at not being offered a permanent deal at the club, he's happy to still be in the local area.

'It will be strange but it's one that I'm looking forward to aswell.'

I've been training with Neath for the past week and it'll be nice that my first game will be against Swansea,' continued the 33-year-old.

'And to stay in the Swansea area, an area I've loved living in, I've loved the people and it's great to stay here.

'I can say a proper goodbye to the fans [on Thursday] because I didn't get a chance at the last game [against Doncaster] - but back then I didn't think it would be my last game.

'So it will be nice to play out in front of them and show my appreciation because the Swans fans have made me the player I am.'


O'Leary also says it'll feel a bit strange playing against his former club:

'There will certainly be mixed emotions,'

'I didn't think I'd be playing against Swansea anytime soon,'

'It's been less than six months since I left and now I'm playing a game against them.

'I know everyone so well there so it will be strange. But it's a proud moment for me and my family and I'm looking forward to seeing the fans again.'
