GOALSCORER Rarmani Edmonds-Green had plenty of praise to pile on Swindon Town manager Richie Wellens following Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Carlisle United at Brunton Park.

The 21-year-old made his fifth start for Town at the weekend after signing on loan for the rest of the season midway through last month’s transfer window, and he deservedly notched his first professional goal after going close on several occasions since temporarily leaving Kirklees Stadium.

Edmonds-Green is an admirer of Wellens’ work on and off the training ground, and insists his one-to-one work with the 39-year-old has developed his game during his so far short time in Wiltshire.

He said: “Richie (Wellens) is a good manager, a great manager.

“He has helped me a lot since I signed, he is always talking to me, helping me learn and develop my game.

“I’d say he is strong at everything. Saturday wasn’t our best performance, but we still got a point.

“Man to man, he is very good at what he does.”

Born in Peckham, Edmonds-Green has built on his professional trade far away from home.

He spent two seasons as an academy player with Huddersfield before graduating in 2018.

Hard work on the training ground has been rewarded with a couple of Championship appearances this term, but game time is what the talented defender ultimately wants.

He added: “I wanted to stay at Huddersfield, but getting game time is important for me – which is why I went to Bromley.

“Coming to Swindon is good for me, it’s showing my manager (Danny Cowley) that I’m ready to step up the levels.

“Defending in League Two is different, though I haven’t played in sunny conditions yet. But I’m dealing with it well and enjoying things.

“Healthy competition is always good and part of the appeal at Swindon.

“I wouldn’t say my career has gone quickly so far, but what is happening now has come at the right time.

“Mentally and physically I’m ready and raring to go for anything.”
