Edward D'Auria: Best feeling ever
Edward D'Auria: "I'm delighted to have signed for Vauxhall Motors. This is a big step for my career and this is the perfect opportunity for me to win trophies and to continue my development. Vauxhall has some fantastic coaches, including their inspirational manager Paul Hewson. He is a true legend of the game and it is an honour to be able to work under him. What he has done for the club is beyond fantastic and he deserves a lot of praise.
It was a very hard decision to leave Swansea City as it is the club I grew up supporting and the club that made me the player that I am now. I vow to return to Swansea one day but for now, Vauxhall Motors is the club for me to become the best I can and achieve the most I can. I have a lot to work on, and I believe that I can improve every aspect of my game to the best of my potential here at Vauxhall.
A lot of people have said that I'm too young to play a big part in a big team, or that I'm too inexperienced. When I signed my contract for Vauxhall Motors, Paul Hewson looked me in the eye and said this: 'Don't let anybody put you down because of your age. If you are good enough to start, you are old enough to start.' I think that shows how great a manager Hewson is why signing for Vauxhall gives me the best feeling ever."
