Centenary Archive off to flying start!

The on-line archive being created through this site, to celebrate 100 years of professional football in Swansea, is growing rapidly even before the official press launch. We have seen fanzines, ticket stubs, cigarette cards, signed menus, photographs, videos, committee minutes, and even the original company incorporation documents!  There is so much fantastic material out there, please keep it coming.

What is even more exciting are the incredible stories that people are writing as part of our survey (see the Survey page on this site to do it yourself). we have posted some of them on this website. They are often moving, funny or just simply interesting historical memories – but the level of intense support for the Swans comes shining through. These reminiscences will be the heart of the archive, and create a fantastic historical resource to be mined by the researchers and football fans of the future. You can read these stories and memories in the fans section.

Thanks to all who have contributed to the project so far. There is still a long way to go, so please encourage everyone you know who has even a passing interest in the football club to join in and be a part of history.
