Ovie revelling in midfield Swift partnership

Midfielder digresses on blossoming chemistry with fellow Royal

13 November 2019

Both John Swift and Ovie Ejaria have been making the headlines throughout the season, for their technical ability as well as their goals and assists.

To date, Ovie has assisted twice and notched three goals - two of which were assisted by midfield partner Swift.

Meanwhile Swift has six assists and two goals to his name this term.

As well as making contributions in front of goal, this midfield duo has also been exciting fans with their skill and flair - it's real easy-on-the-eye stuff for Royals supporters.

When asked about his goal on Saturday - assisted by Swift - Ovie was full of praise for his teammate.

“It’s something I’ve been trying to do for a few years now, get more goals and assists," Ovie said. "I made that run and I know Swifty is capable of playing that pass.


“I got the ball, cut inside and the goal was open for me – so I’ve had a go.

“He’s a top player and he’s on the same wavelength as me, he makes it easier. I really enjoy playing with him and the rest of the team."
