New Centenary Book Out Today

Swansea ’til I die – a century of supporting the Swans…

For 100 years people have followed the Swans. There have been good times and bad times. There have been moments of joy and despair. Players and managers have come and gone but the supporters are always there.

To celebrate the club’s centenary the Supporters’ Trust have produced a 192 page book of fans’ memories and stories. Packed with photographs from across the club’s 100 year history, the book is a treat for any supporter.

It contains contributions from fans of all ages, from school children to those who saw their first game in the 1920s. The stories are both funny and sad and reflect the club’s colourful and sometimes turbulent history.

It’s a book about passion and commitment. It’s about cheering in the stands and looking out for results on the other side of the world. It’s about favourite spots on the terrace and strange superstitions.  It’s about family and friends.  It’s about why we care. It’s about why we’re ‘Swansea ‘til I die’.

Much of the book’s content is drawn from this Swans100 project, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund to record the club’s history, part of which involves an online questionnaire. The book means that many of your responses are now in print! It also contains the finalists of a competition for primary school children who were asked to write about what the Swans mean to them.

The book retails at £15.99 and is available from the Club Shop.
