McBurnie Double As Swans Under-21s Beat Stoke

The summer signing of Oliver McBurnie is looking like one of the shrewdest pieces of business that we have done this summer after he scored twice to give the Swans Under-21s another win this time at home to their Stoke counterparts.
McBurnie followed up his goal last week with a double - one in each half - to give the Swans a second win in a week and lift themselves further up the early league table.
He was on hand to turn home a Josh Sheehan corner after just 11 minutes and his second one came after he picked up a Daniel James pass and turned his man before firing home.
He would have had a hat-trick had it not been for some good goalkeeping from the Stoke point of view with Josh Sheehan also coming close as the Swans threatened a more convincing win.
The result lifted the Swans to 5th place in the table and inflicted Stoke's first defeat of the season.
