Now, with two squad numbers left to fill we can conform that Cusack wants to sign two more players very soon.
On trial today at The Vetch Field are Jamie Wood a23 year old striker who was a Manchester United traineeand partnered Ronnie Wallwork to Royal Antwerp four years ago. Also on trial are David Theobold again 23 who has played for Ipswich Town and Brentford, Mark Millar a 32 year old midfield player from Raith Rovers and Richard Hurling 19, a midfielder from Llanelli. All four players are fighting for those two places along with young Australian striker Scott McDonald who Cusack wants on a years loan from Southampton. Negotiations are still ongoing.
It is also known that the manager wants to sign a centre half, and it will not be lost on him that Steve Jones, now 30 years of age, hasleft Cheltenham Town and may be excellent cover for the season having filled that role adequately in the past whilst at Swansea City. Any stumbling block will surround his fitness, however we are told by his ex team mates at Cheltenham Town that he is now back to full fitness and has a good few more years left in the game.
The club tell us that there is almost certainly to be more signings and that Swansea City have at last managed to get rid of the massive wage bill that was the noose around the clubs neck during the reigns of Neil Mcclure, Tony Petty and Mike Lewis.Those periods saw the club fall from the 2nd to the 3rd division and fearing relegation last season.The CVA which the club entered a few months ago has proven a success forSwansea City which was literally 24 hours from extinction before Mel Nurse andhis team of local business people, and of course the Swans Supporters Trust forced Tony Pettyout of British football, hopefully for good. Now the future is far rosier with committed experienced professionals at the club and a solid business foundation behind the scenes.
So there are two more places to fill, and Swansea City have a head start on the rest of the division due to the hard work ofNick Cusack and his staff. He has shown everyone what can be achieved, hopefully now the supporters will fill The Vetch Field come August and give those new players a reception that they have only dreamed about.
And as we all know when the North Bank roars, anything can happen.
