Welcome to the Swansea City Supporters’ Trust’s regular page in the match day programme. We welcome our opponents today, Stoke City, and their fans to the Liberty Stadium. While our recent away form has been somewhat disappointing, the last two games at the Liberty against Brentford and Middlesbrough have been hugely encouraging and entertaining. The two wins in five days, scoring six goals and conceding only one have been really good to watch and we all hope that continues tonight against Stoke before we head to the capital to face Queen’s Park Rangers on Saturday. While a play-off place at this stage looks unlikely, it’s still possible and while it’s mathematically possible, as football fans we’ll always live in hope, because that’s what football fans do! So we hope Stoke leave disappointed and pointless for their long Tuesday night journey back to the Potteries.
As part of Level Playing Fields’ week of action, the Disabled Supporters’ Association (DSA) recently approached the club with the idea of taking some DSA members on a tour of the Fairwood facilities. We are pleased to report that this happened recently. The DSA offered the opportunity of the tour to all its members and the lucky winners were drawn at random.
As a result, 23 DSA members were able to watch the first team train as well as look around the Fairwood facilities and getting the opportunity to meet many of the first team.
The Trust and the DSA are grateful to and would like to thank the club, players and management. We’d especially like to thank Suzanne and Mike Eames for the way they engaged with the members and kindly gave everyone a spare shirt.
The Swans’ Trust is looking for a new Board Secretary to replace current incumbent Nigel Hamer. Nigel has been a stalwart of the Trust since its formation and we’d like to place our huge thanks and gratitude for all the great work he’s done for the Trust over the years on record. However, Nigel has decided to stand down as board secretary at the end of this trust year in July. While Nigel is undoubtedly a hard act to follow, if you are interested in helping the Trust by taking on the role of board secretary, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
As always, we like to finish by reminding you that you can visit the Trust’s website at www.swanstrust.co.uk for more information on the aims and objectives of the Trust, the work we do and how to join the Trust (online, by mail, or at the Trust pod). We are also on Facebook and Twitter. You can contact us at email@example.com with any questions, or approach a Trust board member on match days or by email.
