From Leamington to Swansea: Courtney Baker-Richardson thrilled with move

Courtney Baker-Richardson is thrilled with his Premier League deal at Swansea City.

The 21-year-old has joined up with Cameron Toshack and Gary Richards' under-23s after arriving in South Wales this summer.

Released from Coventry City's academy in 2014, the striker bounced around five different non-league clubs, failing to find a foothold in the game.

Last season he was turning out for Southern Football Premier side Leamington FC and coaching part-time at a primary school.

“Being at a Premier League club is something I have been striving towards for years," he told the club website.

"Things have happened so fast, it has been like a massive avalanche!"
