Jernade Meade: Former Arsenal trainee is starting to find his feet at Swansea

Jernade Meade: Former Arsenal trainee is starting to find his feet at Swansea

The 21-year-old full-back is yet to make his competitive bow for the Swans following a summer arrival as a free agent.

Meade had figured in the first-team fold at previous employers Arsenal prior to his release, and hopes he will not have to wait too much longer before gaining similar recognition in South Wales.

He concedes that it has taken him time to find his feet at a new club, but has been buoyed by a recent run-out for the Swans' U21 side against Ipswich Town.

Meade told the club's official website: "I want to improve my game. To be honest, I don't think I've had the best start to the season.

"The last game against Ipswich was the best game I've had so far, but I know I can play much better.

"I played twice for Arsenal's first team - first the league cup in the 7-5 win against Reading and then second in the Champions League game against Olympiakos.

"It was a great experience for me, and I need to get back to that level because I know how much better I can be. The aim is to have those sort of experiences with the Swansea first team."

While he waits for Michael Laudrup to call upon his services, Meade's focus is locked on helping Kristian O'Leary's U21 side build on five-match unbeaten run.

He added: "From our first win, we have grown in confidence. We've been having double sessions, and I think the team is starting to get used to each other now.

"I believe we can still improve. We start games positively, but we sometimes slow down in the second half. We need to make sure we are playing at 100 per cent for the whole game.

"The team got off to a bad start to the season, but we are gradually getting better, and we will continue that improvement game-by-game."
