Key Players

Scott Sinclair : With devastating pace and an eye for a goal, the adventurous attacker is an enthralling player to watch. So far Sinclair has scored 8 goals for Swansea and is one of the form players in the division. Sinclair began his career at Bristol Rovers making his debut at the tender age of 15. In 2005 Chelsea signed the youngster for a tribunal fixed compensation fee of £200,000. Limited first team opportunities meant he had to go out on loan to get a game. Incredibly 21 year-old Sinclair has played for 6 clubs on loan including our very own QPR. This summer Sinclair joined the Swans for a fee believed to be around the £500,000 mark.

Darren Pratley : A box-to box midfielder with a great engine, Pratley began his career at Fulham. After a season on loan at Brentford, Pratley joined the Swans in 2006 for a fee of £100,000. Since then Pratley has become a stalwart for Swansea racking up over 150 appearances and has been integral to their success in recent years. This summer Pratley was subject to much speculation over a potential move to Nottingham Forest but the Swans rejected The Reds advances for the impressive midfielder.
