STFC: The Swedes are Coming?

Swindon Town's latest quest to find a batch of promising youngsters has resulted in a possible link-up with a Swedish club.

The Swindon Advertiser have reported that former Town chairman Cliff Puffett has arranged an agreement with Swedish second division side Degerfors IF.

Swindon legend and current youth team manager Paul Bodin told the Advertiser that there 'We have looked at things that perhaps we can do in the future. Perhaps some young players can come over and maybe some of our first or second year professionals can go over to Degerfors on loan to enhance their understanding of a different culture, so maybe there are links for the future.'

This week Degerfors 17 year olds Jesper Karlsson and Sebastian Bergenheim impressed during a week long stay at Town.

Degerfors Idrottsförening

Gunnar Nordahl - The AC Milan legend scored 56 times in 77 appearances for Degerfors between 1940-1944

Olof Mellberg - Started his professional career in 1996.

Sven-Göran Eriksson - The former Roma, Lazio, Sampdoria and England coach started his coaching career with Degerfors back in the mid-70's.
