Swansea City Supporters' Trust

Memorial plaque unveiled

A commemorative plaque in memory of the three Swansea Town players who lost their lives in World War One was unveiled this afternoon prior to the Arsenal game. With this year seeing the Centenary of the outbreak of World War One the Trust felt it was an appropriate time to commission the plaque.

The plaque is placed on the large side wall of the Club Shop at the stadium, close to the Ivor Allchurch statue and the Robbie James Wall of Fame.
