The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP - By An­drew Law­ton

A TRIO of Blues will be don­ning the red of Swin­don Town for the re­main­der of the sea­son as they look to help the Robins move away from the League One rel­e­ga­tion zone.

The sign­ings of Chelsea young­sters Char­lie Colkett, 20, Fankaty Dabo, 21, and Is­lam Feruz, 21, were all an­nounced this week.

Mid­fielder Colkett scored three times dur­ing a loan spell at Town’s ri­vals, Bris­tol Rovers, ear­lier this sea­son and is con­fi­dent of hav­ing an im­pact at the County Ground.

“I’m sure our luck will change and we’re here to make a dif­fer­ence,” he said.

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

“The big­gest dif­fer­ence be­tween League One and de­vel­op­ment foot­ball is the re­al­ness of the fans, the re­al­ness of the matches and that feel­ing of win­ning three points and get­ting some goals un­der your belt. You can’t com­pare it.”

Colkett is joined by Eng­land Un­der-20 right-back Dabo, who has yet to make his pro­fes­sional de­but and ad­mit­ted he has plenty to learn.

“It is my first loan, so I’m hop­ing to con­tinue my de­vel­op­ment, get some ex­pe­ri­ence and help to push the team up the ta­ble,” he added.

“I al­ways talk to Char­lie (Colkett) and Is­lam (Feruz) be­cause they’ve got the ex­pe­ri­ence of being out on loan and they’ve done things I haven’t done.

“I’m speak­ing to them to gain knowl­edge.”

Striker Feruz has had loan spells with Black­pool and Hiber­nian in the past and is tar­get­ing plenty of goals at his new club.

“Goals is the main aim for me, but the most im­por­tant thing is that the team get better re­sults and three points,” he in­sisted.

SWITCH: Char­lie Colkett
