The Swansea City Supporters’ Trust has called on all Swans fans to get behind the new management team and the players for the rest of the Season as the Club looks to secure a sixth consecutive campaign in the Premier League.The rallying call followed the announcement by the Club that the current ‘caretaker’ management team headed by Alan Curtis would continue in charge until the rest of the Season.
It is no secret that the Swans have been looking for a permanent manager following the departure of Garry Monk, but the absence of a suitable candidate together with the upturn in performances which have been evident since the current management team took charge of team affairs has prompted the Club Board to offer them the role for the rest of the Season.
Trust Chairman Phil Sumbler welcomed the statement from the Club which has ended the uncertainty surrounding a managerial appointment. He added:
The Supporters’ Trust has been kept fully informed of efforts to secure a permanent managerial appointment and recognise the difficulty that the Club Board has faced. The continuing uncertainty has however raised concerns amongst fans and today’s announcement will allow everyone to concentrate fully on what will be a challenging time for all connected with the Swans.
In Alan Curtis we know we have someone who will give 100% commitment to the Club and, with the support of Academy Head of Coaching Dave Adams, the positive effect that a short period in charge has brought has been evident. We send the new management team our best wishes and call on all Swans fans to give them full support to ensure that the improved performance levels continue and the Swans move quickly away from our current precarious league position.”
