A tidy debut with a tidy assist

After being deemed too good to stay at Charlton following his impressive performances in the first half of the season, Gallagher was recalled by Chelsea and sent on loan last week to a better Championship club in Swansea City for the rest of the season — better both in terms of personnel and the environment (i.e. coaching) for his development.

It didn’t take long for Conor to introduce himself in Wales. In his debut today, he played the full 90, showing off his two-way game in midfield: energetic and willing to work hard off the ball and showing precision when in possession.

His day was highlighted by a pinpoint assist in the 19th minute, when Gallagher played a through ball for former Chelsea youth player Rhian Brewster, who finished with equal aplomb.

A goal made in Cobham!

At the end of the 2-1 win over Wigan Athletic, Gallagher walked off to unanimous praise and applause from the Swansea fans.

Off to a great start then for the man with golden locks!
