The fans speak – Swans100 oral history

As part of the Swans100 archive project, we have been recording peoples’ stories to capture the authentic voices of Swansea City fans. Some of the memories go back 60 or 70 years.

Some of those who we recorded also left us their stories in written form, or completed our survey – but nothing can quite compare to hearing real fans talking in their own words.

What comes across most of all is the warmth, passion and long-suffering perseverance of Swans’ fans!

Not all the recordings have been edited or transcribed, so at the moment all you can do is listen. All the speakers have given their permission for their words to be available in the archive.
