Chelsea loanee Charlie Colkett spoke right after his arrival at Swindon Town, the club where he will play until the end of the season:

“I’m buzzing to get going and I really like the way the club play football,” he said to the club official website.

“I can’t wait to get started. I’m sure our luck will change and we’re here to make a difference. We’re here to do our job and show why we should be here and I’m sure we’re more than capable of doing that.

“I’m really excited. I like to always get on the ball, make things happen, try and please the crowd and I’ve definitely got some goals in me so hopefully I can make that happen.”

Colkett earned rave reviews during his time with Bristol Rovers this season and he’s hoping that experience can help him to improve at Swindon Town:

“It was a good start to the season, a good experience and a good learning curve and I’m just ready now to kick on again and hopefully push us back up the league,” he added.

“The biggest difference between League One football and Development football is the realness of the fans, the realness of the matches and that feeling to win three points and get some goals under your belt – you can’t compare it.”

Town are in action away at Bolton Wanderers on Saturday and the Chelsea loanee is looking forward to a possible debut for the Reds.

“It starts in training over the next couple of days and fingers crossed I can impress and get my chance,” he continued. What a game it could be.”
