The London Welsh Centre was again the host to the Swansea City Supporters Trust (London chapter) social evening on 6th December. A warm Welsh welcome was on offer as the Centre for the fourth time hosted around 100 Swansea City fans from London and the South East.
The night featured an open question and answer session with Swans Wall of Fame member Mark ‘Chopper’ Harris, club legend Lee Trundle as well as Club Chairman Huw Jenkins and Directors Leigh Dineen and Huw Cooze. Entertaining memories from Harris and Trundle were matched by a discussion on club matters including foreign investment, stadium expansion, player recruitment and more from the directors – an openness unmatched at any other Premier League club.
In addition to the question and answer session the event also had Lewis’ Pasties expressed all the way from Swansea to give an authentic taste of the Vetch Field days plus special barrels of Gower Gold from the Gower Brewery. Plus a raffle and auction featuring some exclusive Swansea goodies.
In addition to it being a fun night giving fans the opportunity to meet some old friends and make some new ones in the growing community of Jacks in London and the South East the event raised £2500+ for Swansea Bravehearts a football club for youngsters with special needs.
