Town wide man on his boyhood side

Gwion Edwards said he's looking forward to Town's clash with Swansea this weekend as he returns to the club he spent seven years with.

The winger joined The Swans as a 14-year-old, and won reserve team player of the year with the Welsh side in 2012 before leaving two years later having made no first-team appearances.

"I enjoyed my time there and I have a soft spot for them now," the Welshman told the Club website.

"They're pretty much the local team where I used to live so I supported them and since leaving I still look out for their results.

"Swansea was a great club to be at as a youth player and there were plenty of coaches, staff and senior players that I looked up to while I was there.

"But it will be the first time I've been back to The Liberty Stadium so I'm looking forward to it and it will be good to see some familiar faces.

"It's an important game for us, though, against a side I expect to be challenging for the top six this season, so we need to be right up for it."
