Swansea City Under-18s ended their season on a high note with an impressive 7-3 victory over Wigan Athletic.

Striker Iwan Morgan was the star of the show, scoring four goals, while substitute Kyrell Wilson bagged a brace and Charlie Veevers also got on the scoresheet.

The Swans started brightly and took an early lead through a brilliant free-kick from Veevers. However, Wigan fought back strongly, with Harrison Bettoni scoring a first-half hat-trick to put them in front at the interval.

But Morgan was in unstoppable form, scoring three goals to complete his second consecutive hat-trick and put the Swans back in front at 4-3. He then added two more goals to take his season tally to an impressive 28, while Wilson also got in on the act with a well-taken goal.

The result was a great way for the Swans to end their season and a fitting farewell for departing Head Coach Darren Davies.
