Way Looks To Break Into Squad

Way Looks To Break Into Squad

As signals of intent go midfielder Darren Way's rallying call has to rank amongst one of the most potent.

Way returned after a succesful loan spell at Yeovil Town this month and claimed he had 'Unfinished Business' at the club he signed for on the 20th January 2006 by then manager Kenny Jackett.

The midfielder has seen his time at Swansea City blighted by a shin injury that has kept him on the sidelines until his loan move back to former club Yeovil Town last November.

Formerly a Norwich trainee Way has only notched up 14 appearances for Swansea since January 2006.

In spite of this the midfielder had worked tirelessly behind the scenes of the Liberty Stadium on match days and other events whilst Swansea physio Richie Evans continued treatment on his shin injury.

His old stomping ground Huish Park was to prove vital in his chances of resurrecting his stop start career with Swansea City .Manager Roberto Martinez keen to enable the player to gain vital match fitness sent the diminutive midfielder out on loan to former club Yeovil Town.

7 appearances and a goal later Way has returned to the Liberty Stadium with one aim to break back into Martinez's team.

Following his return Way told the Evening Post:

'My time at Swansea has been an absolute nightmare.'

But I have learned a lot of things over the last couple of years and I'm hoping that as the gaffer has said to me, the injury lay-off will put another couple of years on the end of my career.'

But now I just want to stay fit, stay strong and get a chance for Swansea City.

I know there's a lot of competition and don't expect to walk straight in, but I'm desperate to get playing for the first teampush on and win the title.'


Way will have to wait to seize his chance as he has has picked up a minor injury.

If he can keep his fitness for more than a few games, I think he can still offer us something.
