Jazz impressed in pre-season at Right-Back and came on as a sub in swansea's 3-1 win over FC Twente. He started in Swansea's 6-1 demolition of neath he also was a sub for Swansea's 2-0 loss to Espanyol B and again sub for Swansea's 2-0 win against Palamos, he again came on as a subsitute in Swansea's 4-1 win over Kilmarnock. He featured a few times as a subsitute early on in swansea's 09/10 season and started against Preston and followed that up with a start against Bristol City which he played very well in. Came on as a sub against Sheffield United and helped the Swans get the winner and played very well again. Played 90 minutes away to Doncaster in centre midfield and won the Swans man of the match in the 0-0 draw. After a long wait for an appearance, he played another 90 minutes in February away to Plymouth, although the Swans were robbed of all three points Jazz played very well and has come on strongly. He then carried on to play in the first team, as he played a further 5 full 90 minutes, as he keeps on progressing.

Jazz has come on strongly since i first scouted him. He's confident on the ball, and although in the future he will play in midfield, he's doing superbly filling in at either right or left-back.

Discuss please :)

Ashley is expected to feature in the 09-10 season for Swansea. With Fede Bessone and Matty Collins future's uncertain, Ashley Richards is expected to be a cover at Right Back, Left Back and can also play in Centre Midfield and at only 18 years of age Ashley Richards definatly looks like one for the future. He should rise to 78 and there abouts as he is preffered to Fede Bessone and by far to Matty Collins as right-back cover for Angel Rangel and is growing with confidence.

Discuss please :)

Nice find mate, He's Welsh meaning we have more good youngsters coming through, the U21's are currently awesome :)

they are indeed

been to watch most of the Wales U-21 games for the last 5-10 years and hope they qualify

He's in the U-21 side at the age of 18 and he's made his first Wales-U21 appearance as a substitute

Re: Jazz Richards - 18 Year Old Sensation

good find. dont no about 78 though. i think that you should wait abit. if he starts performing for swansea then maybe 78 will be great.

when playing he has impressed for Swansea, played very well on tuesday night against Bristol City and probably the third best player on the pitch (behind Joe Allen + Nathan Dyer) and made some good runs aswell as doing very good defending against Bristol City's Sno and kept him out of the game earning a clean sheet for swansea

I think 77/78 is reasonable and is around average for our fringe players, and he's a very good fringe player and much more reliable then Fede Bessone + Matty Collins

Re: Jazz Richards - 18 Year Old Sensation

definatly needs to be added to the database + soon

although he's played 90 minutes in the last 2 games for Swansea he still hasn't been added

He wont start in the next Swansea game away to Barnsley as highly rated right-back Angel Rangel returns from suspension and will definatly start at right-back

Re: Jazz Richards - 18 Year Old Sensation

was brought on for the last 9 minutes (although he played 17 with the 8 minutes of added time) of Swansea's 2-1 win over sheffield united, played at centre midfield and did very well as he played a huge part of keeping the ball and getting forward and it was his pass that started the move which lead to Thomas Butler scoring the winner. A very good young kid and i think he'll be added at 76/77, DEF/CM

Re: Jazz Richards - 18 Year Old Sensation

well he needs 450mins so id say if he plays 90 minutes in next 3 games should get added.

expected to start tonight again doncaster (away) in the center of midfield, a lot of players out and unless Britton (50/50) + Pratley (5/95) are fit for tonight then he should play, and probably for 80-90 minutes
