ON-LOAN defender Harry Toffolo reflected on his Swindon Town debut by saying “it’s a different tempo”.
Toffolo, who joined on loan from Norwich City on Monday for a month, is enjoying his first taste of senior football after coming through the Canaries’ youth system.
He came off the bench for Town during the 2-2 draw with Colchester United at the County Ground this afternoon and told the media after the match how much of a change today’s experience was compared to under 21 football.
”It was one of those games you wanted to get into, to see what I could do and bring to the team. The team were very good today, it’s unfortunate about the goals but onwards and upwards from here,” he said.
“This is a different game. It’s quick, it’s a different tempo and it’s men’s football so it’s a lot more physical.”
Toffolo is happy to play in a defensive four as a full-back or in a midfield five as a wing-back, saying: “I’ve played left-back for about two years now and during the youth cup I played centre-half, I like to get forward and offer as much as I can to the team.
“(Playing as a wing-back) gives you licence to go forward and stability at the back, which is nice, with Jordan (Turnbull) behind me, who is a very good defender. Jake Reeves inside was very good today as well.
“It’s a big shock from under 21 football – with all the swearing on the side as well. It’s a very good team here and they’ve made me feel very welcome.
“My gaffer at Norwich said it was the perfect club to go to, they play the same sort off football as Norwich and it’s a really good club.”
