Swansea City Supporters Trust

Robbie James Wall of Fame

The Swans Trust and Swansea City unveiled the Robbie James Wall of Fame on Saturday 22nd September 2012.

The Swans Trust and Swansea City unveiled the Robbie James Wall of Fame on Saturday 22nd September 2012. The concept was developed and agreed upon at the 2011 End of Season Awards Dinner by members of the club and the Trust board to commemorate the stellar contributions made to our club and enshrine their legacies. 

The wall was established at the Liberty Stadium for fans to view on visits to the ground and will commemorate those who have played a part in the club’s 100+ years of history. Each person on the wall has in some way shaped the football club as we know it today, not only by the number of appearances or goals but also on the community and the city. 

The Trust and the Club subsequently agreed to induct 10 people per year, but subsequently changed this to 20 names in a bid to celebrate the 100 individuals who have contributed so much to the club. The initial concept was described as a “Hall of Fame” and this was the title during the planning stages. 

 

The decision to change to “Wall of Fame” was taken late on and came too late for the signage to be changed in time for the unveiling. This has subsequently been changed. 

The Supporters Trust was delighted that a number of those named on the Wall of Fame, or their representatives, were able to be present at the unveiling. The unveiling of the wall was done by Esme Allchurch and Gwen Griffiths.
