Trundle Ready For New Season

Trundle Ready For New Season

Lee Trundle has spoken about the new series ahead and is looking forward to battling with Jason Scotland for a place in the Swansea starting 11.

Lee Trundle along with Alan Tate and Garry Monk were at the press launch for the new kit Yesterday.

Swansea's top scorer last term was quick to offer his thoughts about new signing Jason Scotland.

Swansea City Striker Lee Trundle:Told the South Wales Evening Post:

'I haven't seen Jason play myself, but I'm told he's a good player and he's certainly got a good goalscoring record.

I believe he has good ability and he likes to try a few things on the ball, and any player who likes to express themselves I like because I'm that type too.

I've said before that if we can bring in strikers who are going to get you goals it all helps the team, and if it helps the team towards the promotion we want then I'll certainly welcome it.

'Hopefully Jason will have a big impact down here and I'll be able to strike up a good partnership with him.'


With Jason Scotland's work permit being accepted by the Home Office Yesterday accompanied with Mayol's signing from Espanyol he will face stiff competition for his place.

That competition for his place will raise his performances and will benefit the team.In recent seasons real competition up front has not been the case. This has led to complacency something that under Roberto Martinez is not an option.

Lets hope something can be sorted with Darryl Duffy or ant other target to add the real depth in that forward position.

Not only will this cometition be good up front it also means if we are in a cup run then we will be able to chop and change our strikers so that they do not burn out half way through the season as has happend in previous seasons!

i think trundle will be hoping to have a partnership with scotland rather than compete with him for a first team place. trundle shouldn't automatically get a place just because he's trundle, scotland and duffy (if he signs) provide a lot of competition, hopefully that'll push lee to improve on last season - when he didn't play that good i felt.
