A team of young footballers got a taste of the Premier League recently when they were selected to form the guard of honour at Swansea’s Liberty Stadium.

Members of Saron’s U12s side took their places on the hallowed turf as Wales skipper Ashley Williams, Wilfried Bony and Jonjo Shelvey took on the superstars of Manchester City.

The youngsters enjoyed getting within touching distance of some of the biggest names in world football, including the likes of three-time African Footballer of the Year Yaya Toure, World Cup winner Jesus Navas and Brazilian midfield powerhouse Fernandinho.

Unfortunately for the Saron youngsters dreaming of one day turning out for the Swans, Man City claimed a 3-2 victory despite Bony’s late goal to head back across the border with three vital points in their quest to retain the biggest prize in league football.

It was not all bad news however as the youngsters met up Swansea comic Kevin Johns.
