Swans Offer Oakes 1 Year Contract

Swans Offer Oakes 1 Year Contract

Swansea City have offered former Walsall goalkeeper a 1 year contract after a successful trial with the club.

The 29 year-old is available on a free after Walsall released him this summer.

He also played 45 minutes in our first pre-season friendly against Carmarthen. He played in the second half and managed to keep a cleansheet. The match ended in a 3-3 draw with Trundle, McLeod and Knight on target for the Swans.

The defence would have played a part in their relegation as well. When we nearly got relegated from the whole FL, who was in goal? Roger Freestone! You can't just base it on that. He hasn't even signed the contract yet either!

I suppose he'll do as backup, but we want a keeper that can compete with Gueret for the no.1 spot, not sure Oakes can do that.
