The Swansea City squad and the Jack Army teamed up for a special Ten Pin Bowling Night on Wednesday 22nd January.
Steve Cooper and his squad headed to Swansea Ten Pin for the event for a bonding and fundraising night with all proceeds being equally devided in aid of local mental health charities Swansea Mind and Hafal
Returning for the first time since 2012 and organised jointly by the Swansea City Supporters’ Trust and the club the evening proved hugely popular with all 26 lanes booked out.
A member of the Swans squad joined up with fans in each of their lanes. Some more great photos of the evening can be seen on the club website here!
Swans skipper Matt Grimes highlighted the importance of the event.
“We’ve had a great time bowling with everyone and chatting about everything from football to family,” said Grimes.
“As a squad we are well aware of the importance the football club has in the community, and the role we have both on and off the pitch.
“But it’s important to stress the importance of the community to the football club too, so it’s a great way of combining the two and for everyone to have such an enjoyable time in the process.”
After a few strikes and numerous gutter balls were played, there was no doubting which Swan has a potential career in bowling ahead of him.
“George Byers had the best score – 174 was by far the highest of our players,” said Grimes. “I’m sure George will be reminding us of that score in training on Thursday morning!
“But the important thing is that everyone had a great time and we’re all looking forward to upcoming events.”
From a fundraising point of view the evening was also a huge success and both the Swans Trust and the club would be donating their proceeds of the night to Swansea Mind and Hafal in the coming weeks.
Both the Trust and the club would like to thank Swansea Ten Pin and everyone who helped arrange this fundraising and social evening and of course to the fans who supported the event.
Lets hope we can aim to do something similar again soon!
