Lawrence Influences Scotland Move

Lawrence Influences Scotland Move

Trinidad and Tobagen striker Jason Scotland revealed in an interview with the official site that fellow countryman Dennis Lawrence influenced his decision to join the Swans.

Scotland, who also attracted interest from Scottish Premier League sides, is one of the most exciting signings of the Summer according to our latest poll, and he said:

'The first person I turned to for advice was obviously Dennis. We are good pals from our days together with T&T and I've got the utmost respect for him.

'He told me Swansea was a massive club; had a fantastic stadium; tremendous support; was in a nice area and the players were a great bunch of lads.

'He couldn't speak highly enough about the club - and that was good enough for me. Then when I came down to have a look at the stadium I was more than impressed.''


After his relievement to gain a work permit, the striker added:

'In fairness, considering there were so many new faces in the squad, everyone seemed to get along really well. The boys are a good bunch. They played a few pranks on me, being a new boy and all that, but I half expected it.''

'There are four or five top quality strikers at the club so my first aim is to settle in, train hard and win a starting place up front. Only then will I be able to enjoy my football.

'I've always wanted to play in the British league and it's going to be a good challenge for me.

'But I've got a fairly good goalscoring record behind me - and it's something I want to continue at Swansea.''


Jason Scotland competes with Lee Trundle, Darryl Duffy and Guillem Bauza Mayol for a starting place next season.
