JOSH Sheehan has expressed his delight after Swansea City academy lifted the FAW Youth Cup for a fifth successive season by beating The New Saints 6-1 at the Liberty.
For Sheehan it was the third time in as many years that he had claimed a winners medal.
Sheehan netted in the final, along with Adam King, Connor Roberts, Kyle Copp, while Ryan Hedges struck twice.
“It’s a great feeling,” said the 19-year-old. “It’s the third year in a row that I have been involved in winning this trophy, but the club’s fifth.
“Every year that we win this trophy, it means a lot to the club and the Academy.
“No matter which team we play, we’re always desperate to win it, and I think our success represents the bright future this club has.
“We were very sharp , played fast two-touch football and dominated possession throughout the 90 minutes.
“The only downside was that we conceded a goal, which was disappointing.
“But overall, it was a great performance and one that we can be proud of.”
Sheehan helped book Swansea’s final place with a wonder strike against Cardiff at the GenQuip Stadium in the previous round.
“For me personally, it’s been a great campaign,” he added. “I’m very happy to score tonight, to go along with the goal I got against Cardiff in the semi-final.”
