‘Swans flying towards Wembley’ 1926
A cartoon about Swansea Town reaching the FA Cup 5th round in 1926. Taken from the South Wales Daily Post, 3 February 1926.
Swans v Portsmouth, FA Cup round 5, 17 Feb 1934.
29,700 saw this match, a record at the time. The cartoon is a good illustration of how crowds before the Second World War could be just as questioning of referees as some of their successors! Swansea lost 1-0. The cartoon is taken from the South Wales Evening Post, 19 February 1934.
Swansea Town 6 Wolves 0 (South Wales Daily Post, 19 September 1927). Note how the Wolves directors are blamed. Before WW2 it was the norm for directors rather than the manager to pick the team.
