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 has produced a book of fans’ memories and stories. Packed with photographs from across the club’s 100 year history, the book is a treat for anysupporter.It contains contributions from fans of all ages, from schoolchildren 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 a Heritage Lottery Fund project to record the club’s history, part of which involved an online questionnaire.The book means that many of those 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 at the Liberty Stadium or online at http://www.swanssuperstore.com/store/product/9501/Swansea-%27Til-I-Die/
