Swansea City v Colchester United – Under 21 Professional Development League Match Gallery

Here is an image slideshow from the Under 21 Professional Development League game between Swansea City and Colchester United at the Swansea City Academy in Landore on Friday, 1 December 2023.

Swansea City Under-21s clinched their third consecutive league victory, overcoming Colchester United 4-1 at Landore, thanks to Kristian Fletcher’s hat-trick and a debut goal from Charlie Veevers.

Veevers opened the scoring by neatly converting a Kyrell Wilson cross. DC United loanee Fletcher continued his stellar form, securing another hat-trick following his three-goal performance against Ipswich Town earlier in the week.

Fletcher notched two quick goals within three minutes in the first period and added a powerful strike around the hour mark. Although Colchester United denied the home side a clean sheet with Kaan Bennett’s goal, it served as little more than a consolation.

In terms of line-up changes from the Ipswich victory, Zane Myers, Jack Stafford, and Maliq Cadogan replaced Joe Thomas, Richard Faakye, and Liam Smith, respectively.

Goalkeeper Archie Matthews returned after a prolonged absence, taking the place of Remy Mitchell, while Nathanael Ogbeta made a comeback from his extended lay-off and was named on the bench.
