NEYLAND Community School will represent Swansea City at the King Power Stadium in Leicester this May after enjoying a fantastic day in Coleg Sir Gar on Monday.

They took part in the West Wales area finals of the Premier League Primary Schools tournament, after qualifying from winning the Pembrokeshire competition before Christmas.

It meant the side, coached by teacher Ricky Bowen, took on the winners and runners up of regions from Carmarthenshire, Swansea, Llanelli and Port Talbot - with teams split into two groups of five.

After going 1-0 down in the first minute of the first game against Tywyn, Neyland came back to win 2-1 and then beat Tee Uchaf, Pontyberem and Llangennech 2-0, 3-0 and 3-0 respectively.

That set up a semi final against Y Dderwen, which they won 3-0, before prevailing 3-0 again in the final against Tee Uchaf. 

The boys will now receive Swansea City strips and represent the club in the UK Premier League finals against schools representing each of the other 19 Premiership clubs from the other regions in England.

The finals will be in May at Leicester City, home of the 2015/16 Premier League champions - and held over a two day period.

All expenses will be paid for the boys and a teacher - who will be picked up from the school by the official Swansea City team coach. 

“It is a great achievement and the boys really impressed the Swansea City coaching staff and scouts with not only their ability but their attitudes as well,” said Bowen.

“They were fantastic and they had Lee Trundle there afterwards to present them with their certificates.

“I couldn’t be more proud of their performances and how they conducted themselves. An unbelievable achievement.”

Former Swansea City striker Trundle now serves as the club’s ambassador.
