Semi-pro Career

Started his career with English Non-league side Burscough, scoring five goals in ten first team games.

Spent time with non-league sides Chorley, Stalybridge Celtic, Southport and a short loan at Bamber Bridge before signing for Welsh Premier League side Rhyl in 2000.

15 goals in 18 games in six months where enough to give Trundle his first chance of professional football at Wrexham.

Professional Career

Won the FAW Premier Cup in 2002–03.

Moved from Wrexham to Swansea City with manager Brian Flynn on a free transfer in August 2003.

Instantly became fan favourite at Swansea, scoring on his debut against Bury.
