SWANSEA Senior League defenders could have their hands full in the new season — after Lee Trundle signed for Brunswick United.

The Swansea City legend is back living in South Wales after being appointed the club's first official ambassador this summer.

And though Trundle is also kicking off his coaching career in SA1, he has not hung up his famous magic daps just yet.

Trundle has signed registration forms with division one side Brunswick.

And while it is not clear how many opportunities Trundle will get to play next season, the Senior League is braced for the arrival of a star.

Opportunity

Trundle is unlikely to be a regular for Brunswick because part of his new role with Swansea will be to host matchday hospitality at the Liberty.

But signing the forms means he will be able to play some part if and when the opportunity arises.

Trundle, who topped 20 goals in four straight Swansea seasons between 2003 and 2007, was on Preston's books early last term but ended the campaign playing non-league football with Chester and then Marine.

As well as matchday and community work, Trundle is to join the staff in Swansea's Academy in the new season.

The hugely gifted striker, who was known for his showboating skills during his time as a Swansea player, will coach youngsters from under-nine level through to under-19s.

    Brochadav. When you played against Curt that was not a competitive game if he was over 40 we can only but see but it only takes one nutter and there are lots of nutters out there and Trundle gets clogged now matter how good he is and was.

    arnoldlane, you're mad!!! trundle is a hero around here. Sure a few will try to clog him, but most will have too much respect for that. Besides, parks football is nowhere near as bad as it used to be. I'd say he had more chance of getting "done" in Camarthen or port Talbot. Anyway, an average parks footballer won't get close enough to touch him, unless it's off the ball. I like to think this is Trunds giving something back. It's surely very exciting for younger players to have a chance of taking a Swans legend on. I remember playing against Curtis a few times, taught me a big lesson in the difference between local league and pro football. And Curt was in his 40's then!!

    Must be mad to even consider playing parks football, they will be lining up to clog him. Get yourself down Carmarthen or Port Talbot as you can still do a job, play parks football and they will do a job on you. Start showboating up Townhill and the will break your legs.
