8th September 2012: Reminiscence filming at Vetch Field

It was the day after the actual 100th anniversary of the first match in 1912, but as close as we could get. We were joined at the Vetch Field site for an afternoon of nostalgia and reminiscence.  The event was filmed by our partners Undercurrents, a Swansea-based community video production company and can be watched here.

The Vetch is a strange place now, and it is surprisingly hard to work out where everything was, but with the help of our trusty volunteers we were able to relive some of the great moments that were played out there.
