The Trust is saddened to hear of the passing of former Swansea City Chairman Malcolm Struel. He was a solicitor, and was club Chairman from 1972-83 and played a key role in the Swans’ rise from the old Division Four to the old Division One.
Speaking to the Club’s Official website, current Swans chairman Huw Jenkins said
“Malcolm is regarded as a fine figurehead who led this club through a memorable time in the history of Swansea City. He will always be remembered as the man who convinced John Toshack to come to the Vetch, and in turn help this club embark on a truly unforgettable journey to the top flight.
“As chairman, I realise the hard work, time and commitment Malcolm put into this club in order to steer it in the right direction. I’m sure every Swansea City fan will never forget what he did at this club”
The Supporters Trust join everyone involved with Swansea City in passing on our condolences to Malcolm’s family.
